Default The Star-Ledger: Raptors Might Take Jonny Flynn 9th Overall

I for one would not be disappointed if we took Flynn.

The biggest surprise about all that is we're told that Flynn is going to be scarfed up by 11 -- perhaps by the Raptors.

I would be satisfied with either Holliday or Flynn over any other PG other than Rubio

if we select Flynn you can pretty much announce the end of the "Roko Experiment'.

Good, Flynn - finally some sense. A very quick multitalented PG with upside. He's even from Niagara Falls NY - an hour away from TO (and where I currently go to school).

Flynn put up TJ Ford esque numbers in college, and would be a great backup to Calderon who could play extended minutes.

Roko would probably be gone by next season`s trade deadline if we pick Flynn. Especially if AP is brought back.

Why is everyone so down on Earl Clark? He is the most multi talented player in the Draft, Sort of like Lamar Odom.

I wouldn't mind getting him at all, but his position isn't what the Raptors need.

Clark to me is a jack of all trades, master of none.

His position is exactly what we need!
A SG/SF with size and defensive prowess on the wing, with ambidexterous handle.
reat this about Earl Clark's work out in Toronto:
DeRozan refuses to work out with Toronto

He's 6'10", and therefore won't be playing SG.
