Who to pick?

Ok, with 4 days until the draft and everyone and their uncles saying we're going to take Derozan. Who would you take if the above mentioned players were still available @ #9?

I'm going to include Evans because in the mock drafts i'm seeing he's out of the top 10 (nbaDraft.net) which seems highly unlikely, but it seems possible (slim at best) that he's there at our selection.

These players seem quite probably available at the #9 selection.

Depends on the direction collangelo wants to take.

If no deals are made moving us up in ddraft then BPA should be chosen-that is going to probably be Derozan.

James Johnson is only ever going to get to be somewhat solid-no star potential.

Earl Clark has potential but it will take some time.

Derozan definately has the highest ceiling.

I don't think I would be disappointed with any of them. It would make me wonder what move was going to happen next if a pg were selected.

To me, it all depends on what he plans to do through FA/trades. In other words, if he wants to target a SG through agency then Flyyn might be our pick. And if Marion is S&T maybe he picks a SF (Depending on what he might be getting in return) and it also depends on what he might do with a 2nd pick? So his other moves that he plans on making will dictate what he'll do with his pick(s).

Anything but a SG would make me wonder that. If we were to take a SF i'd really be wondering what was next. IMO the three best players there are guards.

I don't want a PG so Flynn is out, and the only people I like is Henderson or DeRozan. I want one of them but I hear more praises for DeRozan but also hear thatHenderson is pretty good as well. I just don't know who to choose

F. None of the above

We should pick Jrue Holiday.

If we're looking to address our most immediate and glaring need through the draft, I like Derozan or Evans. If BC is planning to snag another first-round pick, I still like Derozan and Evans. If BC wants to trade an asset for a 2 or a 3 before the draft, then Flynn is the obvious pick. It really is dependent on how BC acts in the next four days, but I'd probably most like to see Derozan in a Raptors uni.

With the 9th pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, The Toronto Raptors select ..

Tyreke Evans! From The University of Memphis. Although he has a shot that resembles someone attempting a shot put, I think he can do well for us. He has a good size, can play both guard spots (primarily a 2) and drives very well to the rim.

To be honest, for a weak draft i gotta say, i'd be quite happy with about 6 players if they're available @ #9.

All of the above plus Holiday. I should have put him on that list as well! And i'm guessing around 4 of them will be available.

This is probably one of the most enigmatic drafts too with many agents protecting their 'one and done' college players. The only confirmed pick is Griffin at No.1 Everyone else in the draft is a gamble.

I went with Henderson

He looks more polished now and looks like he could contribute to us this season, like a Courtney Lee if you will.

I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd be very happy with a Courtney Lee-type contribution.

SLAM online had Henderson going 20 so I'm a bit wary.
Evans or DeMar it is then. Too much hype for DeMar, dangerous.

If Marion is gone I think Clark will be higher on the list
I think Clark will be like Childress
