We got so lucky with this guy and I think he will be a steal in this draft.

We had the choice of Williams,Dikau,Rush or Woods and we definetly made the best pick IMO.

That duo of Rush and VC will be explosive I dont see a need for MOP with this pick. I seriously believe this guy will tear up training camp and we will see VC back at SF with Rush playing SG. Im very excited with this pick.

Vince does have a great handle to play SG. It's a waste for me to think he plays SF.

I don't care how u build, Vince is our SG!

I was alittle surprised with this pick, but he brings the possibility of a serious threat as a scoring option. I have troubles seeing Rush and MoP coexsiting, but it must have been forseen for some reason.

If Rush is so good why didnt Indiana take him over Jones?

I think the trade was a good trade. I like what CJefferies brings to the Raps. Slashing, defense, and a sf that can handle the ball.

I am more angry about GG passing on Woods. I just dont see how you can pass on that kind of upside with the 20th pick. Was it really worth a backup pg? Hopefully Jefferies can overcome his injuries and show us why the Raps like him so much. Next Pippen comparison is intriguing.

He would've been the steal of the draft for the Raptors, but thanks to LA's great swindling...he'll be our steal of the draft.:D Chris Jefferies is a great player though.:yes:

Guys, looking good in college doesnt mean jack.

I obivosuly dont follor college balls but if I get a chance to watch a game or 2 of him, I can pretty sure if he is a thing in the NBA.

But from what I heard, maybe heis at best a "Veron Maxwell!"

It's this simple to all the haters. Toronto had tryouts for both Jeffries and Rush and they were very excited about Jeffries game and upside but Rush was not the player they thought he would be (that's why he slipped to 20 he had bad work out)

Now Toronto was put in the situation to draft either

Woods, Rush, Dickau, Williams, Jeffries

Since Rush slipped so far down the Raps had no choice but to take him and get the best possible player according to scouts. The Raps were gonna deal there 20 to LA fot their 1st rounder and 2nd rounder. Where they would have drafted Jeffries with the 1st one. Since there were so many good players GG decided not to do that but in a sence screw the lakers and give them Rush instead of Woods. (No matter what there 20 was going to LA)

Which is why Toronto diden't do LA a favour of drafting Woods.

Now that that part is settled then it pretty much makes out to be a Hunter for Murray deal. The Raps get a pg that can shoot and bring it up the court.

Now this makes the Raptors able to re-sign Keon because they will not offer Childs and Curry contratys which relieves 6.2 million plus they get the extra million from the Hunter trade.

Jeffries allows JYD to be dealt if he proves to be a good back up and that relieves another 7 million which will be used in next years FA group since they have 0 fa of their own that they need to spend it on. Trust me good move
