2006 Raptors Draft Central


Forza Bargnani! Raptors Select Italian No. 1
In the end, the Raptors held on to the No. 1 pick in the 2006 NBA Draft and selected the versatile big from Itay, Andrea Bargnani. The 20 year old was surprised to hear his name called first overall and sees Toronto as the perfect situation. In the second round the Raptors selected PJ Tucker and sent the 56th pick to Philadelphia.
