During a broadcast on the FAN 590 on Tuesday, Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo mentioned that Andrea Bargnani might see some time at small forward this season in a gigantic starting lineup with Chris Bosh and Jermaine O'Neal.

I don't think its a good idea. He can't even guard quicker PF's. He's slow to be a SF. He's 7'0 250 lbs.

I'm pretty sure if they're even thinking about it, they're going to do it strictly for offensive purposes. The guy plays horrible defense, but he can score. He can still plug the lane if he needs to, but him playing bad d on a SF might be better than him getting owned down low. I'd rather give up a loosely guarded J that still has to clear 7-0, plus arms, than a higher percentage and one to the hole.

i don't know. it has it's pros and cons.

Horrible idea... he cannot play SF, period... he is too soft and slow-footed...

He is another Brian Cook in the making...

I wouldn't go that far. :)

But I agree, not necessarily a good idea.
