    MU has stated from the time he came back to the Raptors, and showed during his time in Denver, that he likes to stack each position 3 deep, with a young prospect filling the 3rd tier.

    Hard to see that changing as long as the Casey/Lowry/DeRozan core remains the focal point of the Raptors.

    It's been a long time since there's been so much uncertainty in the lottery, past the first pick or two. Some players seem to be projected anywhere from #3 to outside the lottery entirely. It's...

    That's an awfully condescending argument.

    Part of my issue with LBJ is that he's so good in all aspects of the game, that his well-roundedness hurts him and his teams. What I mean is that without a defined role and approach, it's hard to...

    I think Davis is getting the ex-Raptors inflation treatment. I was pro-Davis back when we were having the Davis/Amir debate several years ago, to show that I'm clearly not biased against him. ...

    Who said anything about tearing down and sucking?

    Do you want to invest heavily in a 31 year-old Lowry?

    I think Biyombo could work at PF, if the lineup allowed him to be an off-ball glue-guy on offense, playing a style similar to what Landry Fields (and to a lesser extend James Johnson) was good at. ...

    Which makes me wonder about Carroll. The only thing that MU mentioned about him is that he should be healthy next season - not exactly a ringing endorsement.

    I could see the Lakers offering Russell straight-up, in a swap of PGs, but the #2 picks seems unlikely (unless the Raptors include #9 or #27 or a 2017 pick, etc...).
