    Default Drafting a Single-TON Reward!

    Did anybody see the Ohio State vs Flordia Gators? Some dude named Mike Singleton almost single-handedly pulled Florida from a near 20 point deficit. This guy has the HUNGER & aggressive on the defense! Keep your eye on this guy!

    I know he's listed 6'8" and plays PowerForward, a position currently OVERFILLED but I was just really impress with his HARDWORK that almost won the game for them!

    Terrence Jones. There is the Raptors starting SF of the future.

    Bah, I'm just talking smack.

    There is still a long way to go but 20pts, 10rebs, 2.5blks, 1.5stl, 43%3pt, and a couple of assits a game is very impressive in my books.

    Oh yes, in a 6'8" 240lb frame!

    Kemba looks like a shooting guard in a point guards body and the 30 point game outbursts is putting him in an Allen Iverson mode - I think we have been there, done that.

    Now, that is a player worth drafting - the rebounds and the blocks are the icing on the cake.lol. .

    Exactly, show me a few games where he has at least 8 or 9 assists. Maybe its the fact that UConn is basically a 2 man team...but he is a beast. He's a senior though (I think), had a lot of struggles his first few years...I would keep my eyes open for him, Kentucky looks good too and Georgetown has a trio of guards making noise.

    Singleton has a TON of Determination and Willingness to takeover the game. Ideally we DO NOT want a PF but I would re-evaluate Amir Johnson & Ed Davis (Who had a BEAST of a first NBA game and the Wiz) when draft time comes. I haven't seem many college games. Not sure who's out there. Just thought I'd throw this guy out.

    Ideally without upsetting the team too much I'd want a Carlos Boozer type guy to compliment Andrea. But Ed Davis is *very quick jumper* with a great defensive presence even on help defense and could, dare I say, be better then Boozer's very ROUNDED set of skills. Bayless is impressing me too, but Jose is giving him a run for him money. Our team is very young and management has room to be flexible... future looks brights.... I enjoy watching Raptors games again!

    Go Raps Go!

    If i were the Raptors and had the opportunity to draft anyone it would be Perry Jones from Baylor>
    Check him out
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perry_Jones

    He is a 6-10 SF who can handle the ball like a guard and shoot like a guard.
    Can you imagine this lineup

    PG-Bayless
    SG-DeRozan
    SF-Perry Jones
    PF-Ed Davis
    C-Bargnani

    Maybe we can even sign a Stud Free Agent in the Off season with all the cap space we have from our expiring contracts:

    Potential 2011 Free Agents:
    -Carmelo Anthony (very Unlikely)
    -Yao Ming (Unlikely)
    -Zach Randolph (Personally Wouldn't Want him)
    -Joel Przybilla
    -Adam Morrison (LMFAO)

    Actually i began this list thinking there was alot of OF POTENTIAL BUT I GUESS NOT LOL.
    there are more Restricted free agents

    Perry Jones may or may not be available where the Raps pick. He is looking at #2 although he just moved to #1 with nbadraft.net as Barnes is turning in to a let down EARLY. The Raps will either have to suck very hard or be very lucky I think.

    As for players the Raptors could use, obviously if Davis plays like we are all hoping, they should be fairly solid in the front court and free agency might net a 3rd/4th/5th big to go with Bargnani, Davis, Johnson, (hopefully) Dorsey plus Kleiza can put some time in at the 4 if they go small. That leaves PG (this could be debatable depending on if Calderon stays and how Bayless plays the rest of the year) and SF available as real needs right now.

    Looking at PG/SF players possibily available:

    Irving
    Kemba
    Knight (least favourable of the 3 PG's)
    Perry Jones
    Barnes (he may stay a second year if his stock falls too far)
    Terrence Jones (personal favourite of the week)
    Hamilton

    THen there are some bigs looking to go top 10 in Kanter, Sullinger, Montiejunas, Vesley and more importantly some sure fire lottery teams that need size.

    If the Raptors pick top 10, I think they get a solid prospect SF or PG.

    I think those that are dissing this draft class must be talking about the whole draft because there seems to me to be some very good players available in the top 10. EDIT: Actually I'm sure they say that every year!
