    The people who are high on PJ3 and Lamb, are completely out of their minds. Look, PJ3 is a poor man's Channing Frye, except he can't shoot or rebound. Lamb is a poor man's Nick Young, except with zero effort level and no interest in being a go to scorer. Sure, these are exactly the types of players the Raptors should draft with 8th overall pick.

    That's a bold statement. Can't say I agree.

    I don't agree with the comparison at all. Channing Frye can't put the ball on the floor, has no perimeter skills to make anyone think he could be a 3. Perry Jones is perceived to be a 4/3 while Frye plays 4/5.

    Lamb has proven to be very effective as the perfect compliment to a go-to scorer. I don't think anyone will be drafting him thinking he should be that guy in his first season. They have different games, where Nick Young is more of a spot up & break you down kind of guy, in the same mold as J.R. Smith, while Lamb is someone who curls of screens, and operates more in the mid-range.

    Not saying I would be ecstatic if the Raptors draft these guys, just disagreeing with the statement.

    The only similarities between PJ3/Frye, and Lamb/Young are their I.D. photos.

    While some people on the board are high on PJ III, I just have this feeling that he will be Charlie V II.

    I think that Quincy Miller will be the stud SF to come out of Baylor. He is still just gaining confidence from his ACL surgery...it can take time to feel 100% comfortable in your mind. Mo Harkless has gotten some hype, but I think Miller will be the better pro.
    Who ever drafts Perry Jones III will be driven nuts - I would compare him more to Anthony Randolph but with even less heart.

    He will tease you with his incredible potential but in the end this guy lacks heart and character as incredible as it may sound I would rather have reggie evans on my team than PJ III.

    People are high on Jones because of his potential and skills, but his games tell a different story. While Frye has shown he can be a reliable scorer from range, Jones hasn't shown that he can do that in college nor in any of his workouts. He was cast as a post-up 4/5 in college...and he's now saying he sees himself as a stretch forward, except he cant shoot with any consistency. So, a big man who only sees himself as a shooter, but can't shoot, that doesn't scream red flags? Actually, Austin Daye may be a better comparison for P. Jones.

    Lamb has proven to be very effective as the perfect compliment to a go-to scorer. I don't think anyone will be drafting him thinking he should be that guy in his first season. They have different games, where Nick Young is more of a spot up & break you down kind of guy, in the same mold as J.R.

    So, Lamb is shooter...we know that. But his immaturity and indifference are major red flags. A one dimensional player with character issues, that's a good way to waste a pick.
