I don't really buy into this "SHOOTING GUARD IS FOR SHOOTERS" ridiculousness, especially considering how badly the Raptors need a wing player who has the ability to attack the basket and create jumpers for Bosh, Bargnani and Calderon.

I can see Ukic being a really solid combo guard down the road, but he doesn't seem like he'd be capable of using his defensive advantages (i.e. length) if he were to play shooting guard (especially against the lankier guards in the league). Once he gets a little more stronger in the upper body and more fundamentally sound, then I can see him being more of a combo guard off the bench.

With that being said, there still is a ton of work to be done... And that includes fixing up that jumper.
