    Default ESPN: Ford's Raptors Lottery Preview

    If ... and I mean IF the Raptors somehow on earth landed in the Top 3 tonight for the lottery selection, it might just save Bosh from leaving town after all.

    Here's Chad Ford analysis regarding the Raptors:

    Toronto Raptors

    Pick 1: John Wall (0.6 percent)

    Pick 2: Evan Turner (0.7 percent)

    Pick 3: Derrick Favors (0.9 percent)

    Analysis: Perhaps no team has more riding on this lottery than the Raptors. If they hit a home run and win the lottery, they would have a stronger argument to convince soon-to-be free agent Chris Bosh to stay in Toronto. Bosh wants to see the Raptors transform into a title contender and with Wall in the picture, that suddenly becomes much more plausible.

    GM Bryan Colangelo is also a fan of versatile players like Turner. How he'd fit with last year's free-agent pickup Hedo Turkoglu and last year's lottery pick DeMar DeRozan is a bit of a mystery, but I don't think the Raptors would pass on the chance to get him.

    Favors would be more like insurance should Bosh bolt this summer.

    i think this probably has the same percentage - landing a top 3 pick and Lebron donning a Raptors jersey.

    I have my testicles crossed. Makes sitting down a little painful, but I'm willing to take one for the team.

    What if they landed BOTH?

    I'm not expecting anything but 13 tonight really, a top 3 would be great. Bosh might think a lot more about staying if they got 1 or 2. And 3 could land us Favors as his replacement or Cousins possibly.
    Keep Calm & Chive On
