TORONTO Raptors GRADE: B+
Round 1: Ed Davis (13)
Round 2: Solomon Alabi (50, obtained from Dallas)
Analysis: The Raptors were trying like crazy to move up in the draft only to have a consensus top-eight pick fall into their laps at No. 13. With Chris Bosh likely out the door, Davis is a solid replacement. He doesn't have any of the offensive talents of Bosh, but he is a long, athletic big man who will crash the boards and run the floor. He needs to bulk up, but eventually he and Andrea Bargnani should complement each other nicely in the frontcourt.
Alabi appears to be a steal for the Raptors. He slid after teams became concerned about a medical report from the NBA draft combine. But his camp said that teams misunderstood the situation and he'll be fine. If he is, the Raptors stole a 7-foot shot blocker in the late second round.
The "medical issue" with Alabi is rumoured to be Hepatitis B, which in healthy adults clears itself spontaneously.
