Randle is a beast, strong and quick, excellent footwork and can face up and drive the ball, and most importantly he rebounds, an NCAA skill that usually transfers into an NBA skill.
I think they're going to do everything in their power to get Wiggins. If they're top 3, they'll trade up to ensure it (DeRozan or JV plus their own pick?), and if they're first overall it's a no brainer. A Canadian superstar in waiting who's also from Toronto- it's too. Good to pass on.
And if they're not thinking this way, they're wrong. From a marketing standpoint and luckily, from a talent standpoint, he's the guy they need to get. No matter what.
I actually think Marcus Smart is the guy we need...but yeah if Wiggins is on the board and we don't take him well... There Will Be Blood
Noah Vonleh loves hoops a lot. If were 14 years old, I'd choose Disney 10 out of 10 times.

If they don't have the pick, they may try and swing a trade to move up a little, so long as it is in the interest of the team (Leiweke is the new CEO, this isn't the MLSE of old).
If Wiggins disappoints and falls really low, raptors probably won't draft him.
Ergo, MU will do whatever is best for the franchise
Masai has been hired, and paid handsomely, by MLSE to make these decisions, so they don't have too.
There's a reason the Accountants don't make all the decisions around here ... though if the MLSE Accountant had his way a few years back, BC never woulda been here to trade for Rudy ... so there's that.

DD and NYKs 2nd rounders to ATL for Lou Will, one of their 1.2 mill guys (like Jenkins or Cunningham) and the rights to Brooklyns #1. ATL has a good team, better than expected for sure. Teague, Millsap, Korver and Horford are a dangerous set but they really need a 2 guard who can break em down and get to the rim. The "window" for this team is short term and a high pick, even from this draft, is gonna cost a very precious year or two before they truly round into form for a playoff team. Plus there's no guarantee the BK zombies will stay this bad.
LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!
Listen carefully to what TL says, the ASG stuff, the Drake association...they're looking to actually become sort of an LA North. It sounds ridiculous, but it makes sense.
Since there is no consensus #1 pick so far this year who do you think would be the right choice?
A lot of you are going to say Andrew Wiggins, and for good reason but the way I see it, there is a #1 player in college basketball right now and his name is Jabari Parker.
I don't believe in passing on THE best player for the second or third best player simply because that player is Canadian.
I believe Parker will get out to the fastest start in the NBA but that in a year or two it will be Wiggins leading the way.
I'd post a poll if I knew how, but, who would you choose with the #1 pick if the draft were today?
You come at the King, you best not miss.
Parker isn't the top prospect on any major list though. He's the best college player but is a tweener, which brings more uncertainty into the equation than for the other guys in the top 3.
I like Wiggins. If Wiggins is gone, I like Exum or Embiid.
I'm hoping for the best with JV but am not really an optimist right now.
He's not really a tweener, he could play the four but he's mainly a small forward. And even if he had to play the four, he is still very big (6-8, 245) so he's basically Melo size with less body fat.
You come at the King, you best not miss.
If wiggins is on the board guys he is getting picked up by the Raptors. TL wants him bad and this recent Rudy Gay trade had him pushing Ujiri to do it fast written all over it, so Wiggins can come here and take his #22.
Even if wiggins stock falls gorribly Raptors would still pick him with a #1. Cause we are on that Canadian tip so hard.
