    Default If Knight is on the board at #5 the Raptors will likely take him.

    NBA execs seem to be leaning toward Brandon Knight over Kemba Walker when asked which point guard they prefer. I spoke to dozens of scouts and executives over the weekend and the majority of them had Knight ranked slightly higher because of his size, shooting ability and upside. Neither player worked out in the drills on Thursday or Friday. NBA teams liked Walker's personality in interviews. "He's charismatic," one GM said. "I think he could emerge as a leader in the locker room." Walker measured a little bigger than expected (6-1 in shoes) which should help his stock, too.

    Teams said Knight was considerably more reserved than Walker, but they came away impressed with his maturity. The Jazz should be the first team on the board to give them a look. The Raptors, Kings and Bobcats are also in the mix. If the Jazz pick a point guard, I think Knight is slightly ahead on their board. Sources said if Knight slips to No. 5, the Raptors are likely to snag him there and there's no way he slides past the Kings at No. 7, I'm told. Walker's stock is still a bit more fluid. He'll get a look at Utah, Toronto and Sacramento, but I'm told none of those teams are all the way on board with him yet.

    I should have mentioned after the quote that this is coming from Chad Ford's Insider column. I'm not an insider so I grabbed the reference from HW news wire.

    Seems they have moved him up to #6 (Walker is 5 & Kanter is 12!!)

    Wow. Can't say I agree with their player rankings. Biyombo as the third best player? They liked his domination of the Hoops Summit but not Kanter's, the year before? And they have Nikola Mirotic at 7 when he's not even
