it's kind of funny that there's a general feeling that the fanbase is upset with the pick, but somehow most people are actually fine with it in their comments. So what better than a poll to judge our state of mind on this topic ...

Happy after doing more research and getting expert opinions, also after watching tape. Jonas is the best big in the draft IMO, he also addresses the teams' needs. Drafting a guy like Knight would be a piss poor move.

Initially I was very disappointed with the pick since Brandon Knight was still on the board. I was said that I didn't mind Valanciunas as a player- he tries hard on defence and rebounding. I was down on how he needs to wait a year before coming. Patience hasn't always been my thing, but hopefully this pick is for the better of the franchise.

I think that most people are upset because of the European big man label. I know he isn't strong, but he has a high motor and chases the ball. I think Dwane Casey said it best: "I don't care if he's from Tibucktu, as long as he can play ball".

everything you said applied to barg when he was drafted and look where that's gotten us. knight might be a poor move but i think he has less bust potential than JV, only time will tell.

Not disappointed at all about the pick. Knight went lower than most expected. Not being able to watch their workouts and speak to the players, I can't really say it was a good pick or a bad pick. Craptors need a big and point badly. They got one through the draft. I have faith in DC & BC so we will see what happens.

I'm happy, its the coaching I wanted to see addressed most. I'm more excited about Casey being here and seeing what he'll do. I also liked the pick...I think Jonas will surprise many

i really like the idea in theory that we took the best player left on the board

also i like stashing a guy in europe during a lockout year

another thing it slows down the development of the team overall which means another crucial top pick which is needed considering the talent drain on this team, one more of developign demar into a offensive dynamo and overall player, and hopefully andrea geting a little better which he seems to take smalls steps every eyar

I am tired of not being a player in the "Real NBA" sweepstakes.

After a 20 win season, we have kept most of our players, added a draft pick we cant use, and hired yet another unproven coach that is going to learn on our dime.

What is there to look forward to this season or next? That Derozan gets good enough that a real team wants him?

We are a minor league team that feeds the rest of the league. I want to see that changed. TODAY.

PS. I checked "frustrated"

I was less disappointed, but more confused. Hay, I have my views but guys doing this for a living should know more about these guys because they are watching them.

We need a young center for the future. If we can get a Vet thru FA, this will stablize our team and enable JV to be an NBA player. Time will tell ...

Currently ... I'm okay / happy ...

Well said. Needless to say I am frustrated. We needed a quick change and we got a potentially a good player who might be NBA ready only a few years from now.
I want to remind you all that it was BC who said on Bargs; ``it takes longer for big men to develop`` which means around 3-5 years from. To be honest, I don`t have the patience to wait, I don`t think he is gonna be so good that it`s worth the very long wait. I think he can be very good, but only in 4-5 years from now.

Hate to break it to you, but there wasn't a single player in this draft that was going to make Toronto into a contender this year.... Patience is a necessity at this point, otherwise you're just wallowing in negativity.

True, not a contender but a better team for sure. Knowing there were names on the board like Knight and Walker and according to the Raps they are trying to find a C through FA, I don`t see the point of drafting Jonas.
I want the team to get better now because by the time Jonas will be the NBA ready player we all want him to be, the players we wanna keep may not gonna re-sign. We saw it with Carter, Bosh and if we don`t get better fast we may see it from DD, Amir and Ed. It`s a fact, no good players wanna play on a struggling team, knowing other teams want them, simple as that.

Carter re-signed twice actually. Bosh only once. McGrady didn't. I think that's all over-stated. You're right that they could have been immediately better, but this team is so far away from competing they needed longterm high-end talent.
