Why do we want that in a so-so draft class?
Just for the sake of "rebuilding"?

We don't really need any more 3rd tier players for depth.

If we can draft someone like Landry Fileds, dude can play D, shoot and rebound better than Bargs!

We dont really need 3 point at all; Barbosa just gotta get that surgery in the summer and you got yourself a 6th man 3 point specialist. We also have another awesome 3 point specialist in Kleiza when he doesn't go to the rim and turn it over. Bayless is good at 3 point also just that I think he's maybe still injured. Demar I hope eventually get that 3 going as well; work in the off season will be fine. Ya also Alex English Project Jame Johnson; lets see if he can spark just like Amir Johnson did

Adding more shooters means more jams at the wings. We have players at the SG and SF. If you guys want a shooter, we should get a PG that can shoot the 3 ball or another C that can shoot from 3, but I dont think anyone wants another Bargs. But I rather see our defense get better before getting legit shooters.

DD is the only starting "shooting" guard in the NBA who can't shoot the 3-pointer. How have you not learned that skill as a SG despite having been in the league 2 years?

He's also one of the youngest starting shooting guards..... I think we'll see him add that this offseason much like he added a jumpshot last offseason.

I'd rather have him attacking the basket and sticking to his midrange game than being a chucker from 3.

How does having 3-point range automatically make you a chucker? He's the main reason TOR has the worst 3-pt.% by far in the NBA. It's bizarre how TOR starts two perimeter players that can't shoot from the perimeter. Your SG and SF are your prototypical 3-pt. shooters. Must be the only team in NBA history to do that.

firstly id like to welcome you to Raptors forum seeing how its the first time ive seen you post

secondly DD is developing at an amazingly fast pace and i believe he will add a three point shot over the summer. theres really nothing we can do seeing how noone else on this team shoots the 3 ball effectively atm at sg. Barbo should always be a sixth man, its his thing so we have no choice to start DD, an up and coming rook who will add many weopons to his arsenal

Hopefully DD adds the 3-pointer to his game. If not then we need to pick up a guy like OJ Mayo and move DeMar over to SF spot.

A SG that can only make 5 3-pointers a season is a problem.

demar's range might be a problem for some, but a player who takes high percentage shots and consistently gets to the line is alright in my books. if becoming a better defender means taking 5 three pointers a year, we're going to have a pretty damn awesome "shooting-guard" on our hands.

range has never define a position. the greatest shooting guard of all time sucked at three pointers. his greatness on offence came from taking high percentage shots and getting to the line.

MJ had 5 years where he shot under 20% from 3(one year he only played 18 games though), 4 other years where he shot under 30%, and 6 years where he shot above 30%(one was a lockout year though and only played 17games).

MJ first 4 years in the NBA he shot 31/189 from 3 which is 16%.

not all that absurd. there's no coincidence that his best three point shooting seasons came when the NBA moved the three point line two feet closer to the basket.

wouldn't the percentages of most shooters go up after moving the three point line two feetcloser?

Being able to shoot from range changes the way defenders guard you. Dwayne Wade is probably the best SG in the game right now. He shoots about 33% from behind the arc. He loves to drive and score around the rim. When teams give him the 3, he makes them at a decent rate. When teams guard him from farther out he blows by them.

All of that opens the floor up so much more for him AND his teammates.
