    I don't get the KJ McDaniels love. An undersized athletic 3 that can't shoot. You can get a guy like him in the 2nd round of nearly every draft.
    It's his defensive skills that make him attractive. He's very good on D, and that's harder to learn than a quality jumper, which can be taught.

    Atlanta's been rumoured to be extremely interested in Anderson. But: if he slips past Atlanta, he WON'T slip past Chicago. No chance. Warren does one thing: score buckets. That happens to be Chicago's primary needs.

    Atlanta, for whatever reason, doesn't think Jeff Teague is their PG for the future. God knows why.

    Yeah, but that doesn't mean there isn't any spot for Anderson. He is 6'8... they'll try and use him at the 2/3, especially since they start DeMarre Carroll. A Teague-Korver-Anderson-Millsap-Horford lineup, with good passing instincts and shooting range, could definitely run some complicated and interesting sets

    Well if you think Warren is a better fit because of better floor spacing....I don't know how you think that. Warren is a poor long-range shooter. Anderson was pretty good last year for UCLA. Atlanta also runs a 3 heavy system and so a mediocre shooter like Warren is probably not very high on their board. What they need is a secondary ballhandler apart from Teague. Anderson could fit very well as a 6th man taking ballhandling duties off the bench.

    I see what they are trying to do which is probably put Anderson at 3 and run the sets through him or Teague. I still think they are going to have a spacing problem because of the way Teague and there bigs play.

    Hood , warren , early. (Probably too early to be picked) putting Anderson at 3 spot I think is a waste.

    I read somewhere that the Hawks are bringing Anderson over for a 2nd work out. Appears to me that they are sold on him.

    that's really my only qualm with him, though it is a big one. his decision making is pretty suspect.

    kind of the thing with the players after the lotto picks, they all have issues. it comes down to what you can live with.
    I'm wondering how much does his weak supporting cast has to do with his poor decision making. He appears to me as a smart guy.

    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    They have Payton going 21st to OKC.

    I have a hard time imagining Ujiri skipping Payton especially if he is trying to find players to fit Casey.

    Can't wait for draft night!

    I'd be okay with Warren, he can come off the bench and light it up for us
    Bring back the physical game and send the softies home.

    my dream scenario is Lavine or Ennis falls to us

    we get a motoriffic big with our first second rounder

    and my boy melvin ejim with our late late second rounder. i feel like he can be a contributor and if absolutely nothing else, spice up practices.
