Andrea Bargnani ranked 18th on Ball Don't Lie's Top 30 Centers List

50

The verdict is in. Recently on the site we talked about how the Raptors ranked on Yahoo! Sports' "Ball Don't Lie" off-season player rankings, especially the fact that very few had made appearances. No small forwards, no power forwards, and Leandro Barbosa JUST making the shooting guard list. (He was number 30.) The big question was where Andrea Bargnani would end up, if he was on the list at all. Yahoo! Sports' Kelly Dwyer just made it official however placing Andrea 18th on his list of the top centers in the NBA, in front of the likes of Brendan Haywood and Nick Collison, but behind players like Shaq, Anderson Varejao and Marcus Camby. Interestingly, a player the Raptors could have easily drafted but swapped for the corpse of Jermaine O'Neal, Roy Hibbert, was ranked ahead of Andrea, and from my vantage point, it's pretty hard to argue with where Bargs ended up on this list.
