Raptors Lose Coin Flip to Bulls, Will Pick 20th; List of 20th Picks

Raptors have lost another coin flip.

I’ll let TSN explain it:

The Raptors, who finished the season with the same record as the Bulls, lost the coin flip tie breaker with Chicago this afternoon — as a result, Toronto will pick 20th in the 2014 NBA Draft on June 26th. The Bulls will select 19th.

Last time we lost a coin flip we got Terrence Ross (over Harrison Barnes I always presumed), so this may not be so bad. Here are the 20th picks from the last 10 drafts:

Year Team Player From
2013 CHI Tony Snell University of New Mexico
2012 DEN Evan Fournier
2011 MIN Donatas Motiejunas
2010 SAS James Anderson Oklahoma State University
2009 UTA Eric Maynor Virginia Commonwealth University
2008 CHA Alexis Ajinca
2007 MIA Jason Smith Colorado State University
2006 NYK Renaldo Balkman University of South Carolina
2005 DEN Julius Hodge North Carolina State University
2004 DEN Jameer Nelson Saint Joseph’s University

The guy currently slated to go 20th is K.J. McDaniels, a SF from Clemson, Junior who DX describes as:

K.J. McDaniels has emerged from obscurity to develop into one of the best all-around players in college basketball, helping his Clemson squad to a 8-6 record in the ACC thus far. McDaniels has been stuffing the stat sheet all season long, ranking very highly among top-100 prospects in a variety of categories, including points per-40 pace adjusted (6th overall), rebounding (4th among wing prospects), steals (4th among wings), and blocks (1st among wings and 8th overall).
