+1 totally agree. the only argument which can be made for selecting a canadian is that they may feel at home and wont leave in free agency lol

Pick best wing player or shooter avilable. It won't be hard.

Doesn't the CBA also expire after this year? Might as well go back into the draft and play another year to bring your stock up. If NBA has a lockout then it will really set back his development with the injury and all. He needs to play. Barnes stock has dropped a lot as well so he probably wants to go back for another year and bring it up for next year and get some more experience.

Perry Jones is the man now. It would be great if Raps could somehow win the lottery and draft Jones. He is a 6'10-11 SF beast who is incredibly athletic, can beat you with the dribble and shoot. He could turn into Kevin Durant IMO.

Best floater or chucker available. I hope not.

Seriously, if a guy can handle the ball and get to the basket, they have to be all over him. And obviosly you prefer a guy who can defend on this team.

Motiejunas nr. 7, while Valanciunas just nr. 20. Wow, what a joke. In fact, Jonas will be in 2012 draft, I am sure.

His shot is SOOOO overrated. And he nothing like Dirk. Much more like Murphy or Pau.

NBA Comparison: Andrea Bargnani

Yeah, be ready Toronto LOL.
Both : 7 footers, face-ups, likes to shoot behind the arc, rebound liability, playing/played in Benetton Treviso before the draft and both number 11 there.

LOL BC needs to pick Montejunas. Can you imagine what it would be like at the draft in NY? All 3 Raptor fans in the crowd would riot. Riot I say!

EDIT: Frontcourt of Bargs and Dontas would be beast.

He's not Italian anyway so B.C. doesn't even know who he is.

He play in Italy, is the best EURO prospect, BC knows him...

I always was the one, who not lives on Do-na-tas Mo-tie-jū-nas (learn to spell it guys) hype. actually, always thought hes a FAIL, but he really improved a lot this season. He looks very confident, improved rebounding, 7 rebounds a game is the most the most common number, blocking ability, shooting. He draws fouls like a machine, some people thinks he is soft, well he is not strong, but he is aggressive player.

This is his random game video. utube comment says it's one of his worst games, I don't know... But Toronto and Donatas would be fail, it's just funny...

Ha-Haaaaaa!

He looks like he is schooling a bunch of blue midgets. They must have been playing the Smurfs that game. Kidding, but it looks like a game against stiffs.

The NBA is a different game with stronger, faster and more killed players. Dwight Howard is not putting up with that. Neither is Hibbert, Bogut, the Gasols, Lopez, Bynum, nor a whole lot of power forwards. Someone tell that kid that Toronto is full of nothing but igloos and hockey thugs. Look to Detroit, kid.

Why you saying this to me, i am not a Donatas fan.
But those Smurfs are ACB team LOL. Donatas can play against smurfless teams. He and Macvan beat team USA in Nike Hoop Summit. His stats was 21/8. for example smurf DeMarcus Cousins had 4/5.

Hey, I'm playing along with you having the Raps pick him up. If he's more Bogut than Bargnani, at least on this team, then great, if not, he can rock the Smurfs all star team.



I've been scarred by the time it can take for some Euros to get used NBA ball.

Bargnani 2 could be rounding into form around 2017. By then 4 coaches could have been fired.

Ok, Raptors not gonna get him, relax...
I don't know the level of college ball, but i imagine the level of the top 10 draft picks. They are good, most of those guys would be a force to any European national team. Donatas is not a force, Lithuania NT lost about 5 bigmen last year, but Donatas still din't make the final roster.
I always very pessimistic, about Europeans in the NBA draft. Maybe I am too pessimistic. I actually thought Bargnani will have less sucsesfull career. I can't believe it he was first pick. 50% Donatas is another Nikoloz Tsikishvili...or smth. (impossible to spell that)

I wanted to ask about first pick. Is it very important this season?
Most of the times there is one best prospect and we already know who's gonna be the first pick. But not this season. I saw a lot of people talking about Barnes, but on this draft he selecting only as number 3. I see this draft has no one special option.

Ssomeone may separate himself from the pack by draft time. And the team that picks first may have a glaring need that they try to fill at one position.
