    My option isn't on the list (Beal and MKG),

    But realistically, I think the holes in DeMar's game are a bigger problem at SG than the holes in JJ's game at SF. From this perspective, I'd go with Beal and JJ.

    But from an overall talent perspective, I think MKG is easily the best wing in the draft. And I wouldn't want to pass him up. But pairing him up with DeRozan does nothing for me. If we draft MKG, I would hope DeRozan becomes expendable for a Mayo-type player.

    That would be quite the duo. They compliment each other magnificently. In the post though I tried to keep it as realistic as possible with just one lottery pick and one current Raptor.

    Beal and James Johnson would be my vote as well, but looking at the poll you have to wonder how a line up of MKG, James Johnson with JV would look defensively with Bargnani and Lillard (if we could nab him via a trade or combination of 2nd round picks) bringing the offense.

    Yes please.

    It's easy. All the Raptors have to do is win the lottery and then trade that pick and any of Bayless/Amir/Davis/DeRozan/2x2nd round picks/future 1st round picks to NO/Portland/Utah for their 2 lower lottery picks and hope they're high enough to snag both MKG and Beal. Piece of cake.

    Batum and Beal would be pretty sweet with DeMar playing the reserve role for both positions.

    But keeping with the options


    Gilchrist and DeMar

    I'm under the delusion that we draft Anthony Davis.. therefore my vote goes to JJ and Demar.

    Gilchrist at SG and James Johnson at SF with Valanciunas at C is enough to make us a defensive nightmare

    I agree.

    The flip side is MKG at SG and JJ at SF is enough to make us an offensive nightmare as well.

    I should clarify that statement with, "As the roster currently stands...."

    For me MKG is looking more PF than SG, because he's good defender and rebounder, but not so quick and not ideal outside scorer

    Why would you move MKG to SG? let's make it harder on a guy by playing him out of position. We already complain that we have a non shooting SG, so what would be different? J.J. and MKG would give nice energy, but we would struggle to score. If DeMar can work on his shot over the summer that could be deadly pairing. Remember he wasn't allowed to have contact with the coaching staff last summer. I think he will have a huge improvement over the offseason.

    DeMar and MKG all the way.

    Beal and DeMar would also be pretty interesting!

    The thought of DeMar playing SF scares me (especially on the defensive end).

    Honestly the SG & SF are so interchangeable. Doesn't really matter I see them as just wings. Bryco also does the same. I've heard him say he breaks down PG, wings and Bigs
