    I don't think you should be using Perry Jones in the same breath as Kevin Durant. Durant brought it on every play as a freshman. His numbers were crazy good. Jones just went scoreless in a game versus Texas Southern.

    This draft is gonna be known as a year where there';s no clear cut number 1.
    He went scoreless because he got in early foul trouble and didn't need to come back in because Baylor was winning pretty much from the get go. Other than that ONE game, the dude has brought it.
    I'm not saying he's going to BE Kevin Durant, but as a tall, athletic Small Forward, I think it's fair to use him as a Benchmark. Granted, PJones hasn't shown the range that KD has, or even that which was displayed by Beasley, but I do think he brings more energy and athleticism than both.
    And on our team that'd be ok. We don't need another SF thinking they're Ray Allen (*cough* Kleiza *cough*) haha

    And we reeally don't need another PG/Shooting Guard. Knight is a slightly better shooting Jarryd Bayless. And JB has actually shown an improved jumper this year.

    If we take ANY guards, it should only be Irving. And I don't see him entering the draft this year.

    Here is Jones' complete game stats so far this year. I'm not doubting he is a talent but he has hardly been dominant. Chris Singleton also shut him down 2 games ago. It would appear Singleton is everything the Raptors need from a defensive wing perspective.

    But if you compare their stats as freshmen, you will see that Perry Jones shows far more upside. He's got 3" on Singleton, not to mention 2 years younger. Singleton has improved over the years, but in the key areas you'd like to see a SF improve, he just hasn't. He can't create his own shot off the dribble and he's not all that good at attacking the basket.

    DEx says it better than I do though;

    "As a slasher, Singleton remains below average. He does not have the ball-handling skills needed to create his own shot on a consistent basis. He struggles to change speeds and directions with the ball, which hampers him from taking full advantage of his excellent physical tools. He isn't able to get to the rim and utilize his explosiveness as much as you might hope, often settling for off-the-dribble jumpers instead, which are definitely not his strength."

    At 6'11" Perry Jones has shown some skills not many others have at his size. Hence why he's
