Three of the top five draft eligible players appear to be returning to college this year. Pundits say the uncertainty of the NBA labour bargaining agreement has influenced Jared Sullinger, Perry Jones and potentially Harison Barnes' (appears to be staying) decisions to avoid the draft.
This puts real pressure on the lottery considering there are two players at the top of the draft who are legitimate impact prospects, being Kyrie Irving and Derrick Williams. My question to all is thus, If the Raptors, who finished with the third worst record in the NBA this season receive the third pick in the draft who should they select?
My preference is for Brandon Knight because he would be an upgrade at the one, has the same type of work ethic as Demar and has one NBA-ready skill with his three point shooting. Also, he addresses the Raptors
NBA worst three point shooting.
