The Toronto Raptors will give him that chance Tuesday as he will be one of the players brought in for a predraft workout. Shepherd is a longshot, but as a Toronto native, it seems a nice gesture.

The list the Raptors released for Tuesday's workout:

Memphis forward Robert Dozier

North Carolina forward Danny Green

Temple forward Dionte Christmas

Louisville forward Terrence Williams

Australian forward Joe Ingles

Michigan forward Jevohn Shepherd

Looks like the Raps are planning on buying a late 1st to 2nd round pick in this draft

I'd rather get Danny Green. He will be a good replacement for Parker and he plays small forward.

in BC i trust I think he got taught a lesson this year that not everythign works for him, he'll work harder and do better and let his ego go, because we all know his ego was going hard when we picked up Oneal

and trying out canadians this is a good thing, it sends a message to canadians if your good enough to play we will take you within reason of our draft position, obviously the canadians that have come through arent' good enought put its something nice for them
