This thread is dangerous to Raptors Republic Dynasty Fantasy Basketball League.
I shall keep my hidden gems to myself until after our free agency period has expired.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
Gordon Hayward. Is he a hidden gem? Thomas Robinson. I just think he can be really productive if you give him a chance. Also Gorgui Dieng.
Nothing too crazy.
Reggie Jackson and Thomas Robinson. Reggie if Lowry leaves. Robinson because I'd rather have him than Hansbrough as the 3rd PF. His PER 36 numbers this year were actually pretty good. He can rebound like crazy at least. He was so damn good in college, I can't fathom why he hasn't been good in the NBA.
Then I noticed that he could play very well defensively because he is strong and fast....and freakishly long so he did well on the boards as well. Cleveland have themselves a great mix of talent and now just need the right pieces to put it together.
*cough by trading Kyrie cough*
Not sure how hidden LaVine is, but this guy has major upside.
Kyle Anderson is another guy being slept on because of his lack of athleticism (some of you are seeing my UCLA bias here... lol), but he could be a Lamar Odom/Boris Diaw type 6th man which we've seen have been very valuable players to championship-level teams.
I would go with Xavier Henry.
Myself (March 2014):
The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.
There were a few games towards the end of last season Where Denver was giving Quincy Miller some play time and there were moments he looked like he would make a really good 6th man that could put up points off the bench.
Quincy did have some good games yes. He has quite the good handles and court awareness, and he gave effort on D. I would take a flier on him for sure. Still so skinny though and gets pushed off his spots too easily, I think he is going to be a longer project, but one that teams shouldn't abandon.
Wesley Johnson could be that 'meaty SF' we need off the bench.
Or Al Farooq Aminu
Or Xavier Henry for backup SG, although we dont have that much cap space to work with esp after we resign lowry
Maybe take a chance at Jason Smith? He's fallen off the radar
Wesley Johnson did have a very good year. I don't know if I take a flier on him this next season, I want to see more from him first due to his rocky career path so far. If he plays well again then I would definitely look at him
WOW.. This Open Gym episode has me getting GOOSEBUMPS. Especially when they intro game 7
