    He's the best rated SG and this team needs depth at pretty much every position.

    yes he's the best SHOOTING GUARD, but dont we have one of the most hyped players in 2009 in demar, besides i would only draft burks to maybe play PG and trade bayless for next year pick, if my preferred players were already taken(just my opinion)

    Speaking of trades, I heard via Twitter @draftxpress, that Cleveland offered their 4th pick to Memphis in exchange for Rudy Gay. Memphis declined.

    I guess the real question is, if Cleveland thinks Gay is worth their 4th pick, then I wonder what they would think Bargnani is worth, surely they must have some kind of interest.

    I think the idea of having a guy like Burks as our sixth man for the coming future would be fantastic. Plus if anything happened to DeMar he could start no problem.

    I check both from time to time, but I cited Draft Express because they broke the news. Their twitter feed is quite informative.

    Kawhi Leonard could actually be a pretty good pick. His offence is still a work in progress, and improving. One part of his game I do like though, is his defense and rebounding. BC tends to like those long athletic players, Leonard should definitely be given strong consideration.

    It's a insider article on espn analyzing things after the combine.

    It look like the Raptors are extremely high on Brandon Knight(like most GMs are). So seem like the raptors are just going to pick the point guard that falls to them but, they hope it's BK.
    Now I know I'm not a NBA scout or expert or anything but from a Raptors standpoint, it is more appropriate to draft a player (at any position) who can create for themselves. You look at the current roster, there is maybe only one player who can create for themselves. Possibly two. Barbosa and Bargnani.

    This is why I believe Kemba would be more of a better fit for the Raps rather than Knight. Watching some of the highlights, Knight looked like a catch and shoot person while Kemba has great footwork, dribble skills and the ability to create space and rise up for a jump shot.

    1. Irving - Best player available
    2. Williams - Best player available
    3. Kanter - Best player available + they may have hopes for Harris (reason they may pass on selecting Knight)
    4. Jonas - They have Irving, need a down-low presence to compliment him
    5. Knight - Best player + position of need (Vesley is also an option)
    6. Vesley - They have Wall, no need for Kemba + they need some wing presence
    7. Kemba - Position of need (I like T. Thompson better, but they have some nice bigs already plus I think they need an upgrade from Udrih)

    Is it possible we swap picks with Washington and maybe get a 2nd rounder in return? They have reason to fear us taking Vesley, which would leave them Knight and Kemba to pass on because they already have Wall. imo, that's too much talent to pass on. I think Washington will either trade up to ensure Vesley or trade down to 8th and draft Leonard and get something in return.

    You realize that the Jazz's center position is more backed up than their PG position. Al Jefferson and Mehmet Okur, and both are making nearly $25 million between them.

    Because converting SGs to PG is so often successful?

    The reason why GM's prefer BK over Kemba is cause 1. He has great size 2. Plays defence 3. High I.Q.(on and off the court) 4. Shooter(both on the catch and off dribble) 5. Gym rat(DeMar like) 6. Does turn 19 till December(youngest player in draft)

    Good breakdown of how Kemba Walker's game could translate to the NBA and some Jimmer too.
    I'm subscribed to him on Youtube. He's always putting out interesting videos.

    One of the last things he says about Walker is exactly what I've been talking about. Walker would make a great shooting guard in the NBA if he were 5 inches taller. I just have not seen any evidence that he can play PG in the pros.

    The reason I'm weary of both of them is because I don't know if either one is a PG. Their strengths are those of shooting guards, not PGs.

    Actually, contrary to popular belief, Brandon Knight is actually already 19 years old, not 18. He was born on December 1991. This was recently confirmed by Ryan Feldman of The Hoops Report and is displayed on other various sites.
