    Unless Iowa State goes on an insane tear in the Madness, Ejim will be lucky to go mid-second round and could possibly go undrafted. He's got two strikes against him: he's already 23, and he's a 6'6" tweener forward - a step too slow to play SF and undersized to play PF. He's got great skills and work ethic but would be hard to fit in most rotations.
    Is Ejim really a step slow to play SF, though? PJ Tucker was a 6' 5" PF in college and had the same issues. But then PJ went to Europe and re-invented himself as a 3 & D wing. Guys don't normally get quicker as they get older, so I think it's totally possible for Ejim to learn how to play SF in the NBA. First of all, Ejim is quicker and more athletic than PJ ever was. He's also a solid citizen with 3.7 frickin' GPA. I totally see Ejim being drafted by the Spurs.

    What about Ejim? I know he's a senior but he could be a possibility, he kinda reminds me of Amir!

    You never know. After our playoff run, MU will be in a perfect position to sell high on some of our assets in order to trade up. The chance is still there. The best part about this is the fact that some of these Canuck ballers have terrific skills, and its a real thrill to hear about so many Canadians playing high level basketball.
    We would have to give A LOT to get to Wiggins and maybe Ennis as these lottery picks have a ridiculous value to their respective teams.

    Stauskas maybe not as much but I have seen mock drafts where he is lottery as well, sometimes even top 10.

    Who would you be willing to give up?

    Awesome Post thank you.

    Asshole English correction, when referring to something that belongs (possessive) it is their. When referring to a place you use there.

    The Raptors out hustled their opponent on the defensive end of the court.

    The playoffs are a sore sport for Demar Derozan, since he has never been there.

    lol

    Nice post still

    The full list can be found here:

    3 or 4 are redshirts or DNPs but Canada is well represented.

    Ejim is all over the board from late first to mid second round. Who knows we might have shot at him with one of our 2 second round picks

    Stauskus is projected 17-18 by Express/ Ford. Could well be available when we pick,
    Agreed i think of the 3 players Stauskaus is the best possiblity of droping to Raps slot. But the question is if he is available do we pick him or go with BPA or other player is available who is of more need

    Wiggins, Stauskas and Ennis will all be gone before our probable 20s draft pick

    Good sign for Canadian basketball but we won't get them on our team barring a trade.
