Default Let the Draft Rumors Begin-Derozan will not be Available @ 9!

According Michael Grange from Globe & Mail, Demar Derozan will not be available @ 9:

"More on this later further down, but Raptor fans should start Googling James Johnson. Right now hes looking like their most likely candidate at No. 9 tonight, with Jrue Holiday the next best bet. DeMar DeRozan, the feeling is, wont last that far down.

From my poking around the sense is that DeRozan, the rawest of the Raptors targets for the No. 9 pick but also the one with the highest ceiling, will be gone by the time the Raptors are choosing. If thats the case and three league sources have indicated that to me since last night then look for the Raptors to choose James Johnson from Wake Forest. And you know what? Im okay with that."

From Deep - The Globe and Mail

I think it is pretty safe to say we've narrowed it down to 3 names - Derozen, Holiday and Johnson.

Maybe Harden? I can't imagine he makes it past 5 but stranger things have happened.

If he rises, who falls? Because he's not projected to go higher then #9.

If Derozan's stock is rising, someone's is falling. Harden, Evans? I don't see enough teams ahead of us needing wings for the wing well to have run dry. Someone will be there, besides James Johnson.

I'm guessing it's Evans' stock or Hill's stock that's dropping. If Hill is there at 9, I take him no matter what. I know he's another big, but he's the best player available.

But there's no way Derozan goes before 9.

Hill
but he could be taken at #8 if NY doesn't have a PG they want (Flynn/Curry/maybe Holiday)

possibly Evans
if he doesnt go top 6, I don't know if GS and NY want him

Neither is any good. And reading Grange is better the having to hear him. He's an awful speaker who takes for ever to get out a sentence!

Gotta love the draft....If Grange says Derozan is gone, and the Raps still pick Johnson, no way Tyreke or Harden is avaialble. Raps would never pick Johnson over Tyreke or Harden. I'm thinking Jordan Hill is dropping like a bag of bricks like Brooke Lopez last year.

Apparently NY really wants hill! So if Derozan goes befor # 9, and Hill goes to NY...it could get very interesting for us! Plus apparently Flynn is coveted by Sactown @ #4?? I just don't see Derozan going before us.

I doubt DeRozan will go higher then 10. I seriously doubt it, cuz who wants him and if he is who is gonna drop down to us. I really hope it is Evans
