So I know these "what if" questions don't really mean anything, but with the 2012 draft lottery tonight, it got me thinking.....
Seeing how the Raptors
had the 3rd worst record in the league in 2011, if the Raptors
had the 3rd overall pick instead of the 5th we actually had.....Would they still pick Jonas?
Kanter, the 3rd pick, doesn't seem like it will pan out...or atleast not anytime soon. Jazz are really overloaded with big men. Didn't get a chance to see Kanter at all.
Thompson, the 4th pick, is a player we didn't need at all considering he's just another PF who plays a similiar style to Ed Davis. Not to mention Davis was coming off a really solid rookie campaign. The fact that Thompson is Canadian and wanted to play for us wasn't enough to BC according to him.
Jonas? Or different direction?
It might actually make us feel better if you think we would've selected Jonas anyways, than this way being pushed down to 5th overall wasn't so bad.
