    Told you guys. Miller has top 5 player potential i hope he declares
    No one disputed that he COULD be a top-5 talent. However, at this point, no one should be taking him top-5. He should go back to Baylor, especially of Jones enters the draft. He'd be much better served with an extra year at college, honing his game and re-habbing from that ACL injury. Me personally, I'm not high on the kid - at least not in this draft.

    I believe that Miller didn't start Baylor's last game because it was the seniors last home game. Brady Heslip, who's from Burlington btw and has started most of the games, also came off the bench on Monday. QM had 4 points and 1 rebound in 13 minutes in a blow out win.

    Default Draft Sleepers - 2 names

    With the draft just around the corner and the Raptors floundering, let's take a moment to discuss potential draft sleepers. Ed Weiland, the FedEx driver who authored the piece for hoopsanalyst.com predicting Jeremy Lin's success long before he ever played a minute in the NBA, recently mentioned the names of 2 players he believes are being under valued.

    1) Jae Crowder - 6'6"

    17.4 pts, 7.6 reb, 2 ast, 2.4 stl, 1 blk, 51.6% fg, 38% 3fg, 73% ft

    + versatile wing, stats have increased in his 2nd year, can shoot 3's, excellent defender

    - can't create own shot, below average ball handler


    2) Tony Mitchell - 6'9"

    15.3 pts, 10.9 reb, 1.7 ast, 1 stl, 2.9 blk, 58.1% fg, 43.2% 3fg, 70.9% ft

    + outstanding rebounder and shot blocker, at U-18 FIBA was #1 per-minute rebounder ranking ahead of JV, great athlete, very bouncy

    - limited offensively, below average ball handler


    Acquiring an extra pick can be tricky and/or expensive, but if the price is right, I'd love to see BC take a flier on one of these guys.

    Thoughts? Any other sleepers?

    I'm intrigued by Kris Joseph. Need to watch a couple Syracuse games before I make a decision though.

    Darius Johnson-Odom is a guy I've been checking every now and then. Honestly, I had not even bothered checking Crowder out until now. DraftExpress.com has the Raps picking Johnson-Odom in the 2nd round - scrap that - sign me up for Crowder if I had to choose between the two - both are seniors. Having a lock down 3&D player is great to have.


    *EDIT*

    Speak of the devil, what a game he had today on senior's day versus #12 Georgetown:

    26 ponts (8-15, 0-5, 10-12)
    14 rebs
    3 assists
    5 steals
    1 block
    1 turnover
    38 minutes

    Barnes was so meh today. He should have taken the duke dude to school considering the size he had on him but barely did anything. He just doesn't look to take over a game and we already have DeMar for that.

    I am more for Lillard but you're right if Marshall finds a shot he is interesting.

    Thomas Robinson if he is available when the Raptors pick is the right choice. Dude is a beast.

    Yeah Marshall seems to be finding himself offensively. Scary stuff.

    I'd never heard of Crowder, but I like what I see. I'd love it if the Raps could pick him up. Looking at him and his numbers, it actually makes no sense to me that he's projected only as a 2nd rounder. What's the logic behind that?

    I am more of a Lillard fan too but, if Kendall Marshall can prove he can score and defend quick guards you have to go with him. Pass first PG are a dying breed in the league. With Rubio succesinbg the way he is helps his stock.

    Watching the Kentucky/Florida game today... Beal is going to be a beast! He has great handles and fantastic court vision for a SG. If MKG does in fact stay in school for another year, Beal is quickly becoming my second favourite wing in the draft, after Barnes.

    Same, Anthony Davis is one hell of a hustle player.

    Beal had a tough day today vs. UK; 1-10 5pts, but his 8reb, 4ast and 2stl shows he can do other things when his shot isn't falling.

    Which Demar doesn't do.

    Watching the game too. His shot is not falling but he always finds other way to help his team. His been capable of creating his own shot but has been able to finish at the rim(Anthony Davis 7-4 wingspan probably has a lot to do with that)

    Davis would look good in Raptor red.
