Yean based on that I doubt he is really going to be part of this team. You know usually by the way the staff and media talk about a player if he is going to be here or not. I think there is a very little chance that even if he is on our roster he will have some playing time.

In a bit of a way, they may have been trying to prevent Daniels from feeling like a single sock. All the attention was going to be on BC5, and he may not have got asked anything other than dumb pointless questions, 1 or 2.

Don't think this was posted but an article on Daniels:

Quote:
“I was nervous the whole time,” Daniels said. “I kind of wanted to watch it by myself. I kept going back and forth in and out of the room and then when it got to [the 30th pick] I went into my room and laid down.

“I guess the 37th pick came and they called my name. I was still laying down. Everybody started screaming and running around. I thought, ‘Oh wow.’ Everybody came running into the room, jumping on me, family members crying. It was a great moment.”

The 6-foot-9 forward is in Los Angeles, training hard with some of his new Raptors teammates and coaching staff. After his second session of the day, Daniels laughs easily and is extremely personable, despite the long day in the gym.

“It’s great,” he said. “It’s good to see guys early, come out, get to play with them. Just talking with guys like Amir [Johnson], DeMar [DeRozan], listening to them and doing whatever they tell me to do because these guys have been in the league for a long time. It’s so great to get out here early, get our workouts in and then head out to [Las] Vegas for Summer League.”

Daniels grew up in Los Angeles and has been familiar with Johnson and DeRozan since his high school days. In addition to working out with his vets, Caboclo arrived in L.A. Tuesday.

Reflecting back on draft night, Daniels said the rest of the evening was a quiet affair for he and his family. Rather than going out to celebrate, he elected to stay in and soak up more time with his siblings and said the family was awake until almost 5 A.M. Just talking.

“I definitely shed a few tears with my family and now it’s just the beginning. I have to keep working hard and prove it to the team.”

While he hasn’t spent any time in Toronto besides visiting the city for a pre-draft workout, Daniels was touched by the support he received from Raptors fans after he was selected. Shortly afterward, he posted a note to his Twitter account thanking the team for the opportunity.
