    Really excited for what this guy can do. I have a couple questions for anyone in the know:

    1. When can he play?

    2. How much of an impact can he have off the start?

    After he got hurt last year, Indiana went in the tank. Early in the year they were playing great but in January OG went down and that was it. No NCAA Tournament and beat out first round of NIT.

    He can really take it to the hoop when healthy

    I am really happy with this pick. I really didn't think we'd even have the chance to pick him up

    Kyle Lowry
    10 OF 11
    Similar to Baron Davis, Kyle Lowry suffered a torn ACL during his college career and still went on to excel in the NBA.

    Lowry recovered flawlessly from his 2004 injury at Villanova, and stats have increased with most of his six seasons.

    In 2011-2012, Lowry averaged 14.3 points per game and an impressive 6.6 assists per game for Houston.

    Most fans would have no idea he even tore his ACL—this guy shows no sign of slowing down.

    Kevin Pelton's stats/scouting had OG as the 7th best prospect .

    Methodology:

    My projections estimate the number of WARP (wins above replacement player) that each player will average during his first five seasons in the NBA, based on two components.

    The first takes translated college or international performance and adds in age to get a stats-only projection. In the list below, players are ranked by their consensus projection, which incorporates a second component -- where players rank on Chad Ford's big board -- to capture the scouting consensus about them for improved historical accuracy.


    Big Board: No. 13
    Stats: No. 7

    Consensus:1.8 WARP

    A team willing to draft Anunoby despite the torn ACL that prematurely ended his career at Indiana might get a steal.

    Anunoby is the only prospect in this year's draft projected for better than 2.0 steals per 100 plays and 2.0 blocks per 100 opponent 2-point attempts. Historically, several wings who met that criteria have outperformed their draft slot. The group features Robert Covington, Danny Granger, Josh Howard and Andre Roberson, but also includes nonentities Renaldo Balkman, Branden Dawson and Chris Singleton.
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    This is awesome.

    No injury and he is a sure fire lottery pick.

    Easy pick for Masai this year.

    No brainer.

    Awesome.

    Its a good thing actually.

    Most of those long ass shorts are worn for fashion reason sense only, but in actuality you are better off if the shorts are tighter and way above your knees especially if you are a high flyer.

    I am glad the kid doesn't give a shit about that.

    Anyone have a guess on this guy's timeline in terms of when he'll be able to produce for us on the big team?

    “They told us he’s ahead of schedule, but what date that is, I don’t know,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “We’re going to get his program right from when he leaves here, from the press conference tomorrow.

    “Alex McKechnie (Toronto’s director of sports science) is one of the best in the league. He’s got some of the best people in Los Angeles working for him . . . so we want to make sure we start him out right now in that program and get it going as soon as possible.”
