Kawhi Leonard

After Irving, Williams, Kanter and Knight, the Raptors have few available options that can be regarded as potential fixtures at a specific position. Though Kemba Walker seems like a sensible choice, there's still some uncertainty surrounding his role at the next level. The Raptors might want to address the leak they have at the small forward position and fill it with cement, or a 6'7 forward with a 7'3 wingspan and hands that could grip a leather beach ball. Leonard has reportedly shot the ball extremely well during workouts, and has given teams little reason to doubt his effectiveness as a rebounder and defender. The Raptors need depth/talent at the 1, 3 and 4 positions. Considering the lack of point guard options after Irving and Knight, and the abundance of safer, lower-upside 4s, Leonard looks like the best fit from a needs and upside standpoint.
