Around the league word is that Lamb is are guy
http://hoopshype.com/rumors/tag/toronto_raptorsSome NBA officials believe Toronto, with the eighth overall pick, is leaning toward taking Lamb Racine Journal-Times
Which I wouldn't mind at all. If anyone can get him fired up it would be Casey. He fall right in line with what Casey was asking for at the year end press conference. Shooter, athletic wings who run the floor.

Anyone have that link to the combine measurements...or know which post number it was? Lamb looks like he could be a really big SG and may even grow into SF size. The last I saw he looked pretty beefy.
Good defensive technique, just needs to move his feet.
Great range, great ball-handling, especially that right to left crossover.
Can create own shot very well.
Can really get into the lane. Despite skinny body, strong enough to score in traffic.
Can go off to score a large amount of points.
Big time competitor. Supreme confidence. Fearless.
Rarely gets stripped. Can score anywhere from the floor whatever way (layups, floaters, jump-shots)
Has a full arsenal of offensive moves.
High IQ, good understanding for the game.
Needs to see the floor better. Trust the pass.
Work better off the ball.
Selfish at times.
Ability to use left hand was a problem in high school. College level hasn't been too much of a problem.
I really like this guy. I really hope we draft him, he really reminds me of James Harden and Dwanye Wade in a way. Plus this kid was ranked number 1 out of high school, and he was never built to play for the collegiate level. Game mas molded for the NBA. He could be a steal. The highlight video shows a lot of pick-and-rolls and isolations. Which is a constant use in the NBA. He can create his shot very well.
He'll only improve defensively under Dwane Casey, and he could be a spark-plug off the bench like James Harden, or start at the two and be a tremendous scoring option like Wade, not a bad defender either. Guy is fairly athletic.
With his great ball-handling ability, he could be a combo guard and play spot minutes or rotational minutes as the point guard. Thus giving a more versatile, bigger lineup, and we all know how BC loves his versatility.

He has really good skills though, lengthy, shoot from anywhere, uses screens well. But, we already have way too many laid back guys on this team...
Some people yawn when they're nervous.
@daldridgetnt: Wizards in win now mode. Reluctant to throw big $ at limited free agent class. Okafor/Ariza pros who will be good people around John Wall.Wow.@daldridgetnt: NO trade will save Hornets $8.3 million, with Lewis buyout of &13.7M on his $22M salary next season.
Washington no longer needs a small forward, thus making a possible drop for MKG, allowing them to take a big man. Don't know really how big the changes are, but the draft is already very unclear on who goes 2-10. This just made it a little bit more blurry.
Washington now looks like a team ready come playoff time. Experienced players with Nene, Okafor, and Ariza. Not to mention adding a player in the draft.
While New Orleans clears up cap space. They'll be able to make some moves.

Looks like Beal is the perfect fit in Washington.
Looks like 2.0
Why do want this guy again? Listed as a SG on NBAdraft.net
Hollinger's board has him at #17 based on PER
Am I the only one who thinks this makes no sense?
i8theball.com it's a website...about, you know....basketball.
I'm not really feeling Lamb either (or Rivers, or Waiters for that matter).
It's Lillard or PJ3 for me.
If Toronto really wanted one of Beal/Barnes/MKG, their best bet to trade up in my opinion would be Sacramento.
This assumes Drummond is who Sacramento wants and is not picked by Portland (Lillard) and Golden State takes someone other than Drummond..
#8 (maybe ED or JJ?) for #5/Garcia?
