Raptors Ford: Raps zero in on Knight, Biyombo, Leonard

The Raptors' hiring of Dwane Casey may affect their draft plans. Casey is a defensive specialist, and when he looks at the Raptors' roster, there isn't much to like on that front. GM Bryan Colangelo has built an offensive juggernaut, but defensively they're pretty terrible. That may explain why the team is zeroing in on three excellent defenders -- Brandon Knight, Bismack Biyombo and Kawhi Leonard -- at No. 5. I've had Jan Vesely going here for weeks, and others have been pushing for Kemba Walker here, but it sounds like neither player is atop their board right now.

I don't get the lack of even consideration for Walker. Kind of strange, maybe his size has them looking elsewhere. They were impressed by his workout. I just don't see us getting Knight unless we trade up.

I'll call it now, Raps don't take Kemba and it comes back to bite a big chunk out of our hide!!

I'm willing to put my money on leonard. He'll be there at 5... Bismack is too much of a risk IMO. I wouldn't mind grabbing him, but 5 seems a but of a reach.

Thats the problem. Knight will be gone, but Leonard and Biyombo will be there at 5. They'll be still there at 10 ffs...

Kemba Walker could be the player dropping in lottery, especially because sources say Toronto (5th pick) and Detroit (8th) will pass on him.
I doubt he gets to #8 anyway, but this is kind of surprising to me.

Knight is a potentially elite defender and he's much younger
From
What i've read, walker is at best an Aron Brooks kind of talent
Walker is more advanced, but knight's potential is way higher

Noooooooooooooooooo I wanted Kemba so bad for the past few weeks. I'm fine with Knight, but I know he's not gunna be there.

Leonard's alright but I think he's too similiar to JJ, and Biyombo is just Not a 5th pick.

Leonard and DeRozan together could grow into being a fairly lethal tandem on the wings.
