    Honestly the SG & SF are so interchangeable.
    Not sure if I agree. If I was building a team, I would look for different skill-sets for SG and SF. There's definitely room for overlap, but I don't think the two positions are as interchangeable as PF and C nowadays.

    Edit: Assuming both positions are able to shoot and create his own shot, I would emphasize speed and court-vision with the SG, and defence and rebounding with the SF.

    Wade/Lebron

    But seriously, Demar and MKG

    I have not given up on Demar, and think he will improve more over the summer
    MKG seems to have a huge motor, and I would be surprised if He cannot develop a nice shot

    Yeah, that was my total wet dream.

    Still possible but highly, highly, highly, highly, highly unlikely.

    As tasty as MKG and JJ would be on defence ... I had to go with Beal & JJ, to get the added scoring punch!

    How about an option for 'none of the above'?

    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
    he's 6'7" he's too short and not strong enough to play PF. Please don't make dennis rodman comparisons... he's quite fast from what i heard and he's improving his shot.

    batum and chandler is a mediocre wing duo in my eyes. DeMar and MKG has much more upside possible top 5 one -two punch in the league. Bargs, DeRozan and MKG is like our big 3

    Double D and MKG, unless I give up on DeMar.

    Also wouldn't agree with SG and SF being interchangeable - I would faceroll my keyboard if DeMar was slotted in at SF. Need the size and strength to shore up the D and help on the glass.

    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.
    are you sure derozan's offseason isn't going to be more like this:

    Roscoes Chicken and Waffles is the best in L.A, it's a place that sees the best of athletes (NBA especially).

    James Johnson & Demar Derozan.

    Rookies gotta prove themselves before they start in the NBA if you ask me.

    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.
    +1 on all counts

    Why is Batum/MKG not an option? That would be a dream come true for any raptor fan.

    In this draft, the expectations are these players will be NBA contributors right away, and that's why it isn't a favorable choice for MKG/Beal to sit first.
