    BC's live conference, 1st thing he said was that DC overperformed vs expectations and naturally deserved his option year to be exercised.

    So.. Ed Davis gets the bargnani call out this year. I guess that makes sense. When Bryan talked about how they were going to improve shooting and he said something like "well, look at a player like...." and them caught himself saying to much. That was about as close as I've ever seen him come to doing that. Planned? Did someone give him a look? Or did he just see the drool coming from the pool of reporters?

    Thanks for the breakdown. Much appreciated. Gonna have to watch the videos tonight.

    The shooter hole could technically be addressed by drafting Barnes. Bringing back Barbosa helps too.

    I don't think he'll be available past 6.

    I'd love to see the Raptors draft Beal.

    After pre-draft work-outs I think J. Lamb will distinguish himself as best shooter in this draft.

    With the pick most likely outside of the top 6 that is who I would target.

    What about your boy Q.Miller?

    Maybe not at 6 but later in the 1st round, would be a pick I could live with sitting on for a few years.

    I got a sense from what he was saying leading up to this was that he was talking about players already in the league who might be acquired by trade (not a draft pick). He was so close to saying it that I'd love to know who he has in mind (even if it's a pipe dream). Who do you think it might have been?

    if we drop to like 8th or 9th and Quincy Miller dominates the workout we draft his ass. He may very well be a prospect but he is just the type of player we need at the 3. Long, athletic, and very energetic and vocal

    Wonder how long MLSE waits before deciding on Colangelo's option year. The end of this summer? The end of next season?

    Not sure what will happen with the mock drafts and final evaluations but, as much as I like him, I think top 8 is a bit rich.

    If the Raptors could swap picks with a team and take back a player, that would be a good circumstance to get Miller i.e. player and 14/15/16 pick for 7.

    Not sure this is even possible but it is something I would not be opposed to if the Raptors don't get top 3 or no one of significance slides.

    Very true. A lot can change in the next 2 months.
