    He's quite good, but I'd rather draft a point guard or a big man, and address a backup wingman maybe in the Free Agency period if Salmons isn't required. Looking at the free agent list, someone like Xavier Henry would be a solid addition. But yeh he can definitely shoot and score, he wouldn't be the worst selection.

    I believe Hairston would be ready to jump into a rotation right away in the NBA. Some rookies are years in development and coaches often don't give them minutes because they're being paid to win games.

    Man, anyone know why Shabazz Napier is slotted in late second round everywhere? I've watched him a couple times this year (including last night in upset over Memphis), and I think he's a top-5 PG in the country. His offense is so smooth; he really sees the floor well and knows how to run a team. Would love to snag him with one of our second-round picks.

    Unlikely to be seen as having a lot of potential seeings he is 23 in July.

    And if scouts have this opinion it is all kind of self explanatory.

    Napier's shortcomings as a distributor and unselfish teammate are well documented--Andre Drummond looked mediocre alongside him and Jeremy Lamb in his lone season at UConn--but he's made some strides in this area at the college level under former NBA point guard Kevin Ollie.

    To be honest, I'm all for going in to the top 10 to get a Randle (longshot), Vonleh, or Gordon without giving up our pick so we can get a pg-pf combo. Like Gordon-LaVine (looking like he might be available round 20)

    Of course, I'll probably also hate the cost, which I imagine being Ross+ or DD+.

    Hypocritics are awesome though.

    I think there's going to be something really nice available at 20. People are going to slide, others are going to randomly go up after "impressive work outs" or something else random like combine measurements. nbadraft.net currently has Aaron Gordon dropping to #20 to Toronto. I don't trust them and can't see that happening at ALL, but there'll be something. Just have to trust our guys that they make a good call.




    And get a bit lucky

    UCLA is playing Arizona right now in PAC-12 final. Fun game thus far. LaVine has struggled though.

    He seems like a freak athlete at 6'8 with serious wingspan. Like 7'2 1/2 I think I read. Very raw offensively though, doesn't shoot threes at all. Lots of potential on both ends. Syracuse really struggled when he went down with injury.

    I saw a couple of sites including DX having him go to the raps right now.

    Kansas, Florida and Cuse all in the same bracket

    Warren Buffet made sure nobody is winning $1B, I guess.

    I got Kansas winning that bracket if they can survive till Embiid gets back.

    Chad Ford now has Dario Saric ranked at no.11 in the latest mock of non-freshmen. Including freshmen, that would put him at around no.20. Apparently, teams are afraid that he'll stay in Europe for a few years. A Nikola Mirotic situation.

    Pretty intriguing. The Raptors don't necessarily need a rookie right away. In fact, if a rookie stays in Europe, that's extra cap space to chase Chris Bo.. I mean, some free agent. Saric was expected to go in the lottery both last year and this year. I've seen him ranked around no.7-9 earlier this year.

    Taht would be a tremendous pick up as a defensive wing with size and athleticism.

    He is a projet on the offensive side, but with Terrence and Demar he would be an awesome fit.

    What you guys think of Cauly-Stein? I think he would be a good backup center to JV, and a great complement to 2Pat and Amir.
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    An even bigger concern with Saric is a repeat of the Fran Vasquez situation. Drafted 11th in '05 (right after Andrew Bynum) he decided to stay in Europe and has never come over - a totally wasted lottery pick.
