if kemba is available at 5 and BC doesnt pick him (assuming knight has already been selected) im definitely jumping of the BC bandwaggon and hoping he gets replaced soon. We need to improve at the pg spot as jose isnt a franchise point guard along with bayless not to mention pg is the most important position imo and we have enough bigmen as it is.

The guys I like most at the top of this draft are Knight and Jonas.

Looks like this draft can be the K-Mart draft all over again.
With JJ here I wouldn't be surprised if that Raps looked elsewhere.

Not many 3s with a body like Leonard though... freakish wingspan.

It appears that Knight is a consensus pick @ 5 for the Raps at the moment, with Kanter storming into the top 3.

We'll see.

Consensus pick for Brandon at 5? According to who? I see more Kemba Walker fans on this board than Knight...

You think this board is employed by the raps? The organization doesn't want Walker. I guess they don't listen to Don Vito.

hahha ok! but even tho knight has better defense and speed and height over kemba... i still think kemba will be better for us.

kemba played better than brandon when they faced off in the ncaa tournament.

Toronto has narrowed its choices to four -- Knight, Jonas Valanciunas, Bismack Biyombo and Kawhi Leonard.

I think if Knight is grabbed before us, we'll trade down and grab one of the other 3. Still can't believe they have no interest in Walker.

Kanter will be gone, Knight appeares to be 50/50, and Walker seems to be out of the question unless that's just a smoke screen.

lets take Jonas Valanciunas. Even if he plays in Europe next year we can still suck and collect another top 10 pick in a good draft next year.
And find a trading partner for Bargs if he doesn't improve.

If Utah picks Kanter then Jonas will probably go to Cleveland.

One thing that needs to be pointed out. BC made a great move getting James Johnson for the 27th pick. It can't be stated enough looking at what will be there at that spot.

Of course... if JJ was in this draft he'd be top 5.
