Doug: I know for a fact no one in the Raptor basketball hierarchy shares the opinion that you – and so many others – seem to have about Jose. So, no, they will not look for a point guard in the draft.

SF if Marion comes back is fairly solid.
PG is also solid.
PF is pretty good
C is pretty good.

SG sucks monkey balls.

Doug Smith is such a genious

Only way the Raps will draft a Pg is if they get the second pick and Rubio declares.

THE GUY is Duke's Gerald Henderson - Lock down defender, terrific jump shot off the dribble, nice drive

If he's not available Raps will draft DeMar DeRozen - a perfect body. He's more athletic than anyone in this draft (at SG)

I agree I am really hoping we can draft Henderson. He is our best shot at a SG out of the draft. Problem is that odds are he won't be ready to have an impact that makes him a significant improvement over AP in his rookie season. A solution will still likely be possible only via trade or free agency (in terms of 2009 UFAs I don't think any SG are available that address the weaknesses this team has). BC is gonna have a tough time filling the SG weakness by next season...

I also think it is not 100% certain that DeRozen will declare for this draft.

we're going 100% SG/SF in the draft unless some other ridiculous player drops in our laps
BC shouldn't even try to hide this fact, the guy should just workout SG/SF players for the draft straight up
why would we draft a PG? jose/roko/banks, seems like there's already enough players in that position whether they are good or not
who do we have at SG/SF? jason kapono, seems pretty obviously just by numbers where we're going with this pick

no offense to wilson chandler or to whoever suggested him but the Raptors are in need of someone that is better than a wilson chandler, they need at least someone that is close to allstar level if not at least with an allstar's skill set
