@RollWithEm

With the 20th Pick in the NBA Draft, the Toronto Raptors select...

- Kyle Anderson - If Casey thinks he can work on this kids D, he will be the perfect fit for us. His offensive abilities (especially in transition) are exactly what this team needs and will push DeMar, Ross and Valanciunas to the next level. I'm excited by him because of all the players in the draft he brings something we sorely missed last year, the ability for easy 'get out and run' buckets.
- Tyler Ennis - Really good 'pure' PG that would compliment Val & Amir (PnR, Lobs etc). If we take him, I expect us to give Lowry another year running the show and then move him next summer and promoting Ennis to full time starter.
- Adreian Payne - Could fight with Amir for the PF spot and provide quality minutes as our first back up big man. He can shoot and handle the ball surprisingly well for a big guy too.
- TJ Warren - Would be the ideal compliment for Ross and give us an enormous amount of flexibility on the wing. I'm impressed with him and would be happy if he was our selection. He scores at a tremendous rate and is very active in doing so (cutting, floaters, offensive boards). His lack of perimeter D can be hidden by Ross and his big body can bang with those who try to push inside. They could be a dynamite duo.

With the 37th Pick in the NBA Draft, the Toronto Raptors select...

- Damien Inglis - Great potential due to size and defensive ability. Very raw and will need a couple of years.
- Glenn Robinson III - Will probably stick in the league as a solid rotation guy for many years. Not a bad thing at 37.
- KJ McDaniels
- Thanasis Antetokounmpo

With the 59th Pick in the NBA Draft, the Toronto Raptors select...

- Dwight Powell - Fluid and big. Could be a real steal late in the draft.
- Jordan Bachynski - Huge and somewhat mobile. Could be a solid 'Aaron Gray' type to have in the rotation.
- James Macadoo

That's a lot of talent to be adding to our roster. I am incredibly excited for this draft and would love to walk away with a selection of these guys above.

At 20, we will take BPA. If Kyle Anderson is still on the board, I think Masai will struggle to not select him, he brings such an exciting skillset (even if his D needs work). Ennis would be a great get, but with Lowry and GV, it means something will have to give, unless GV becomes a SG due to his size (6'6).

The 37th pick is the most difficult for me to predict. If we don't select a wing at 20, I presume we will look for a big bodied SF with this selection. Inglis and Thannis are probably very high on Masai's list.

At 59, I think we go big. Dwight Powell looks incredibly talented, I wouldn't be surprised to see him go much higher, he has that 'Plumlee' type explosiveness. I also really like Bachynski here, but he could skip out of thr draft completely and be brought in for Summer Camp, but that's always a risk with teams like San Antonio selecting after us.

I think BPA at 20 as well. I'd be fine with Ennis, Warren or Anderson.
2nd round I see us potentially drafting some Euro Projects. Inglis is one I've posted before. Another Is Kristaps Porzingis. Check out his wingspan in this pic:



He's supposedly athletic, but raw and still needs to develop physically. But he's only turning 19 in August.

I could see someone reaching for Porzingis. I hope Indiana finds a way to trade up for him.

I think the Raps should take Clint Capela either with the 20th or the 37th if he's still available. He's a project but has a lot of potential to be a defensive big.

Amir's still young. Not sold on him? Isn't he your defensive big while JVal is your offensive one?

I'm sold on both of them but our depth isn't that great. Right now our bench bigs include Patterson(If he stays), Hansbrough, Hayes, Novak. Out of the 4 only Patterson has earned consistent minutes and none of them are interior defenders.

I still think wing depth is a bigger issue for this team.

re: 2014 Draft | Raps pick Bruno Caboclo & Deandre Daniels

I think we're good enough to go best player available at all three picks and just build our depth. I think there are clearly some needs with this team, namely another active big and a "3 and D" wing player. We should be able to address one of those needs given the depth of this draft.

At 20 I like GR3, Adreian Payne, Jerami Grant, the Latvian guy or Capela. Not really fond of Kyle Anderson or Ennis though (sorry, GTA).

At 37 I wouldn't PJ Hairston or Thanassis or Markel Brown, but the guy I think I'd like to bring in most is Melvin Ejim, to make it up to Brampton. I think he could be the big wing we could use, and if his 3-point shooting comes along he could be a valuable piece.

At 59, I don't really care, he probably won't stick. If Ejim is there I'd like him otherwise maybe Patric Young? Bachynski?

@RollWithEm what makes you say this about Payton? I like his size and reported skillset, but obviously have not seen him play.

Is Payne a better defender than PPat? Because they seem pretty similar skillset wise.

I've seen him play a lot. His game is predicated on his ability to penetrate, but I just don't think he has NBA-level speed or quickness. His ball-handling is not sharp enough to consistently get in the paint at this level. He's also not strong enough to finish through contact. Add that to the fact that his jumpshot is not too solid... and you have a dangerous prospect. I think he will likely be a waste of a pick.

Payne's a better rebounder. They are similar defensively. Patterson has more range at this point in his career because he has worked to extend that range. At the time they both entered the league, I would say they were similar in that respect as well. Good comparison.

re: 2014 Draft | Raps pick Bruno Caboclo & Deandre Daniels

http://www.nba.com/raptors/thursday-...-workout-recap

Quote:
After a series of workouts with players who could be second-round selections, the Toronto Raptors spent Thursday looking at some whocould be options with their first round pick later this month.

In a six-player workout that included UCLA’s Kyle Anderson and Clemson’s K.J. McDaniels, Raptors director of scouting Dan Tolzman talked about the disadvantages of drafting before the free agency period. The key is to treat each situation separately.

“I think the biggest thing is to not make draft decisions based on that, on your current roster and your current situations,” Tolzman said. “You keep it in the back of your head and you'll take it into account when you're drafting players but if the most talented guy or the highest guy on your list happens to be a position that you’re loaded up with you can work stuff out later. You can use all those guys as assets later.”

Although Toronto had a hugely successful 2013-2014 campaign, the front office knows they are more than one move away from becoming a championship-contending team. With three picks in the draft, including the 20th overall, there’s plenty of opportunity to address some of the gaps that need to be filled.

“I think the main thing for that is the position that we're picking,” Tolzman said. “I think at 20 the chances of you finding a guy that could be that one guy away are slim to none. To come in right away and do that, those guys aren't available at 20. Whether it’s the best player available or just the best player on your board, it could be totally different. If it fits with the culture of the team and the makeup of the locker room, and all of that stuff, in addition to him being a project, I think you roll the dice on a guy like that because you do have a little bit more of an opportunity to develop that person as your team builds on its own.”

While McDaniels is an interesting prospect because of his athleticism and ability to disrupt on defence, Anderson is intriguing because of his ability to play the point and create offence while standing 6-foot-9 and playing a below-the-rim game.

Anderson embraced the opportunity to talk with NBA coaches and general managers at his workouts.

“It's half the game,” Anderson said. “You take in that information, what they had to tell you and you use it, you apply it. You want to keep that bridge. Later on down the line, in the NBA, if they don't draft you now they may want you later. Just have a good personality, and that's not a problem for me.”

Anderson spent time after the workout speaking with Raptors head coach Dwane Casey. Not surprisingly, Casey was giving him advice about the defensive end of the floor.

“One thing coach Casey taught me today is when on defence making the offence feel me,” Anderson said. “Whether that's getting up, being physical, whether it's using my hands, just using my advantage. Just being physical that's going to help me later on in the workouts.”

The roles Kawhi Leonard and Jimmy Butler have played in their teams respective success is something teams will consider when looking at McDaniels throughout this process.

“You’re looking for guys who can come in and impact the game without needing the ball or without really needing a big role on the team,” Tolzman said. “And it’s guys like that where they kind of carve out a niche as a defensive-minded guy and then they improve all the other things and they become so much more well-rounded. And I think K.J.’s the same way. He can get on the floor because of his defence and, from there, who knows? The sky can be the limit with him because he does have all the athletic tools and ability on that side.”

The Alabama native has been leaning on Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe for support and advice leading up to the draft. While he has improved as an offensive player each year at Clemson, it’s his ability to affect the game without plays being run for him that intrigues scouts and team officials.

“When he first started he was pretty much just a high-wire, interior type guy,” Tolzman said. “This last year, he was all over the floor, did all different types of things offensively. I don’t know if he’s comfortable enough yet to come in and shoot the NBA three, but that’s definitely the type of thing where, as he gets more comfortable stretching his range out, he’ll absolutely be that type of guy.”

More from Tolzman (Raptors Director of Scouting)...

Quote:
“I have always thought that if you could get defensive minded players that’s more important than offensive minded players because all of the (skills like) shooting and offensive-type principles, you can work on those, you can build on those, but the mentality of a defensive player, a lot of time, it’s ingrained,” Tolzman said. “If you get a guy who is not into playing defense or just doesn’t buy into that, that’s always tough to develop a guy like that to become a defensive player. Whereas, if you draft a guy who is a defensive guy – maybe his shot isn’t perfect or he doesn’t have the best ball handling skills – you can work on that. That is the whole idea of assistant coaches working on player development. Defense might be what gets him on the floor as a rookie because he busts his tail, because he isn’t afraid to mix it up defensively and all that other stuff will come over time and that’s where they develop into better players that way.”
