Q: Hi Doug. Will the signing of Rubio by Minny change the draft at all? Also could you comment on the rumour of Flynn to Raptors-he's a poor shooter with a weak assist to turnover ratio. He does not seem to be an upgrade. Thanks

Douglas L, Toronto

A: Shouldn’t really change the draft at all, it was highly doubtful Minnesota and its point-guard-collecting GM was going to a shot at Irving anyway. What it might do is change what the Timberwolves seek in a trade to get out of the No. 2 spot.

And, in my opinion, Jonny Flynn is not at all better than either of the point guards Toronto has under contract now and to seek him would be foolish. Besides, I’d thought that nonsensical rumour was dead?
