Good to know that he might be in Summer League at least.
“I’m happy as hell right now, gave the goose bumps, very excited.” Bruno Caboclo tells another Brazilian journalist, Fabio Balassiano.— Ryan Wolstat (@WolstatSun) June 27, 2014
Balassiano says Caboclo has only been playing basketball five years. Could be in Toronto soon discussing buyout. Maybe Summer League.— Ryan Wolstat (@WolstatSun) June 27, 2014
Caboclo is from a very poor family in Brazil. Driven to succeed. Very shy, doesn’t talk much.— Ryan Wolstat (@WolstatSun) June 27, 2014
#Raptors Casey says they were worried some1 else would grab him. Grt wing span & he'll b able guard 3/4 Was totally impressed when I saw him— Paul Jones (@Paul__Jones) June 27, 2014
I hate Dwane Casey
At least we're speeding along to our last pick.
No trades for us it looks like.
The name's Bond, James Bond.
Imagine how the entire fanbase reacts when bruno scored 0 pts 0 reb in 1st SL game.
The name's Bond, James Bond.
I hope to see him in Summer League. Maybe the fact that he's from a poor family, might push him to come to the NBA sooner? Who knows. He'll likely want to help support his family, and tha'ts the best way.
Though, I'm sure he knows that to do that, he'll have to work his tail off. But, being from a poor family, I'm sure he had to work his tail off to get to where he is now to begin with, so I'm liking this guy's character.
I can't find it now but earlier in the day some blog posted an official looking list of the name of each likely draft pick with the phonetic spelling beside it so there wouldn't be any screw ups on the stage. I assume, by his absence from the list, Adam Silver was very confident in his pronunciation of Bruno Cabocio.
Paul Jones Twitter:
He's in the US now. Played on same club team as Barbosa. Great defensive feel. He will be working with coaches in LA ASAP then to Vegas
Casey: He's excited and hungry... Tremendous upside is what Casey stressed. When asked if he could guard KD..Bruno said yes #2014NBAdraft
Casey: Phx was a team that knew him...plan was Tyler 1st then he was plan B. Nobody will disappointed. His potential is greater than others
Have to have the 24 hour rule in effect. If your about to say something you might regret wait for 24 hours before you do it.
Hope we get to see Bruno in summer league. Everyone in that draft room had to buy in to some degreee. They can't be that wrong. This Raptor draft has surely not followed even remotely any of the predictions and thoughts written up in this thread.
Colour me skeptical until we get to see Bruno live.
Pretty clear plan was for ennis and Bruno but Phx messed it up
No one would be complaining if went to plan.
Bucher is really pushing Lowry..... Wow
"You donít know the Bruno Caboclo......"Bruno Caboclo

I hope they can change PHX's mind about Ennis. I'm kinda excited about Bruno
Also... People. The youngest player in the draft was Bruno. Born 1995... What does this mean? HE IS NOT DONE GROWING. 6'9'' now? 6'11'' later. And guess what? He has only played ball for 5 years, and shoots 3 pointers well. Not even Giannis can shoot well. He may be under-publicized (was given a draft promise, did not work out for any team, comes from poor family, etc) but his upside includes these abilities:
1. 6'9''... 6'11'' ??
2. Quick and agile body, good leaping ability, good balance
3. Crazy (really crazy) wingspan
4. Good Shooting ability, stretching to the 3
5. 18 years old
6. Defensive potential is huge
7. Humble, has a drive to succeed, probably will be great for our locker room!
8. Spurs were interested in him
Could be we want to have his rights now, so that we can begin a rookie season with Bruno at age 20. From the age of 18 to 20, stars can either go from unknown to first overall, or from first overall to undrafted. What if Bruno projects to be a Lottery pick in 2016? To get him with a 20th pick now could be the longest long con in NBA history. Only time will tell.
The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!
Just wanted to poke my head in.
1) Like the Caboclo pick. Surprised me, but reading up I like him better than the guys I had ranked. Just came out of nowhere.
2) Like the Daniels pick. He's a solid 3+D prospect and has the size for SF. Would pair well with DD or Ross.
