    Doug Smith's blog mentioned that BC, Stefanski and the rest of the team are at the combine and have spoken with Shabazz Mohammed. Now if he was available with the 12th pick I may reconsider the Lowry trade. There has been mention of Shabazz' stock dropping due to attitude problem, and also about lieing about his age, so perhaps he could drop to 12 or even lower. I don't know much about him, but he seems like a natural scorer.

    6'6" but plays mostly SF. Decent jumpshooter and pretty good rebounder for his size, and can also post up the odd time. He has a really weak right hand though, which can make him kinda predictable in isolation.

    That's just from me watching Bruins games over the course of the year.

    It's extremely unlikely he's going to fall out of the top 5.

    Most mock drafts have him around the #10 spot right now for what it's worth.

    Sullinger was drafted 21st, and PJ3 28th.. and they were both expected to be in the top 10 too. Draft stocks can drop rapidly for a variety of reasons, and him lying about his age could be a big deal for a lot of people.

    They also talked to Zeller (according to hoopshype). Zeller's an energy 4 who can play some 5. Can't remember him having much of a post game, and Shabazz lacks handles, decent shot but fell apart during the combine apparently. Zeller isn't falling as much as Gobert is rising. Shabazz is definitely falling. Unspectacular season, being older than earlier reported, undersized for his position, mixed reports on how he interviewed online...

    Not sure how either one fits on the Raptors, this is not a talent before need draft. Also, these type of interviews indicate they are trying to get into the late lottery, or mid first round. That's the intriguing part to me.

    Perhaps they feel that if they do get into the top 3 they might trade down into the mid first round.

    If he drops far enough to the bottom half of the draft, I would hunt hard for a pick within that area. Shabazz reminds me of a poor man's James Harden, which isn't necessarily bad considering where Harden's career has gone right now..
