just look from 8 to 20, you can mix and match any of those players, it all depends where the teams have them ranked and what they need,

this is the kind of draft where the 20th player taken in the first round could be one of the best players three years down the road, its just that deep in talent, just not superstar talent that the Raptors need unless we get the no 1 pick

raptors could do a ton of trading down, move the 8th pick to houston for the 14th and 16th pick, move the 16th pick and a 2nd round pick to boston for 21 and 22nd pick,

14th pick quincy miller
21st pick marquis teague
22nd pick evan fournier (stock pile him europe while develops)

thats one scenario you could do, obviously whoever you like thats available you cant take, one this for sure is there is going to be some solid role players and maybe if your lucky some starters available
Trading a down for more picks and/or players is considered a risk but I think in this draft it may be worth it if the player who the Raps want at 8th isn't available. They could very well get lucky and draft a player who turns out to be a solid reserve
