Rautins was the first Canadian ever drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft going 17th overall to the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1983 Draft. Bothered by knee problems, he played in 28 games as a rookie with the Sixers and four games the following
season for the Atlanta Hawks before leaving the NBA
to play in Europe.

After retirement, Rautins became a basketball commentator with the Toronto Raptors television network. As member of Canada's Basketball Hall of Fame, he was named head coach of the Canadian National Team in February, 2005.

Leo Rautins: This is a tough pick. There's a lot of players that I think between 5-20 that there isn't a great amount of separation. To have the 10th pick is a tough one. The most obvious need right now for the Raptors is a backup point guard. There are a couple of good ones that may be around -- Ty Lawson, Johnny Flynn. The Raptors have a lot of needs, but that is one that they may be able to address with the 10th pick.

I asked him to share his thoughts on the impact of the Degrassi series on the youth of Canada.













Actually, I asked him if he thought the Raptors should use the 9th pick to address their need for a big, physical presence down low or an athletic slashing wing.
