Raptors USA Today: Rating the draft

Quote:
8. Toronto Raptors: Washington guard Terrence Ross

Ross has everything a team could want in a shooting guard, but he lacks star potential. The Raptors think they've got a star in Lithuanian center Jonas Valanciunas, who joins the team this year after being drafted in 2011. Ross can shoot, slash and defend, and his athleticism is excellent. He should be a solid starter if he can play with shooting guard DeMar DeRozan. They both have size, but neither is an ideal small forward. We'd expect more upside from a No. 8 pick, particularly with shooting guards Austin Rivers and Jeremy Lamb available, but Ross should be solid. Grade: B-

Quote:
37. Toronto Raptors: Baylor forward Quincy Acy

Acy's scouting report is a list of Jay Bilas' favorite words: long, athletic, dynamic, plays bigger than he is, strong but lean, aggressive on defense. Those are things the Raptors need. Grade: B+
Quote:
56. Toronto Raptors: Croatian forward Tomislav Zubcic

Another rail-thin, lanky European comes off the board. Zubcic is 6-11, 229 pounds but plays small forward. He may never reach the NBA, but it never hurts to take a flier this late. Grade: C-

Not the way I would've drew it up or the way I envisioned it going down but my frustration has settled...I'm over it! This is still my team but...I wanna know BC's beef with drafting a PG lol...

My Grade would be C- overall

I think that Lillard was one of the 3 (or 4) that BC and co said that the wanted, it just sucks that Portland was so high on him for so long. He's who I really wanted.

I was hoping that we'd trade Derozan for Lillard's rights after the Ross pick was announced

hopefully ross dethrones DD and we either trade DD or move him to the SF spot and hopefully his lack of range won't be as big of an issue
problem with DD is he requires a lot of touches in order to be effective on the court, that will take away from Bargnani and if ross is any good him

Different kind of player, but I hope he becomes our OJ Mayo kind of player.

yeah for sure they wanted him...Although Acy is good I kinda wanted to see PG T.Taylor get drafted but i guess they weren't convinced after his workout
