    Default DeAndre Daniel

    At least he's more established than Bruno Durant

    I watched him a bit through the tournament, and he played really well as the tournament went on. When the Raptors picked him I was thinking great pick. Can't wait to see him and Bruno in summer league!

    I like Daniels. He was one of the last few guys on my list still there at 37. Could be a very solid 3+D at SF if he puts on some muscle.

    I feel the same way. I was pretty high on this guy and mentioned in a few threads that i would like us to grab him at 37.

    I'm wondering why we would want to stash Daniels, he appeared to me as a "NBA ready" type of 2nd rounder and I'd rather see him than Fields tbh.
    mcHAPPY replied with playing time argument, but I'd rather see him developed in the raptors environment than somewhere else.

    Ujiri said in his presser that he thinks he'll likely be in the Dleague or playing in Europe next season.

    He probably should hold off on buying a condo in Toronto.

    Safe pick by MU. I see him in D-League majority of the season

    Dumb pick, makes it confusing when referring to DeMar as DD. Ujiri should've taken nicknames into account and selected a player with different initials, looks like the BC Era is back! :P

    The new quincy acy? How are his bench reactions and celebrations? Can he at least grow A beard? Masai said he may send daniels to the d league. Hopefully he has a great taste in suits he may be on the bench for a while.

    Seems like a guy that can develop into a nice 3 + D player. I'd stash him overseas over the d-league though, at least he'd be working in a system.

    Default So...how about that other guy we drafted?

    DeAndre Daniels - SF - UCONN

    DRAFTEXPRESS

    Daniels looks the part of a NBA small forward. He has excellent size (right around 6-9 in shoes), with a long 7-foot wingspan, big hands, a frame that should fill out nicely in time, and above average athleticism.

    Daniels' biggest strength as a NBA prospect, besides his excellent size and length, likely revolves around his perimeter shooting ability. He improved greatly in this area from his first two years in college, where he made just 33 of 128 attempts (28%) from beyond the arc to start off his career, knocking down an outstanding 42% of his 3-pointers (50/120) as a junior.....

    ....Daniels is not a great ball-handler, showing a very high, loose dribble that mostly relegates him to being a straight-line driver, something he was able to do semi-effectively at the college level by being used as a mismatch threat from the elbows with his very long strides. When asked to create from further away, Daniels struggles, rarely getting all the way to the rim due to his average first step, lack of strength and tendency to shy away from contact. He converted just 49% of his half-court attempts inside the paint this season, a fairly poor rate, and got to the free throw line just 3.3 times per-40 minutes, the fifth worst rate of all college prospects in our Top-100 rankings.
    Needs to add about 20lbs of muscle to help with the contact...looks like a nother long athletic wing.

    Will he stick with the team?
