    So the Blazers still have their 1st this year. Hmm.
    Getting Grant signals no time for a rebuild. Think they try the 7 little and simons to get another piece win now piece. Maybe one of the centers?

    You see a guy's shooting improve from suspect to 41% from three in one year, that tells you something about his work ethic no?
    His stats improved in every category each year. He seems like a gamer.

    Primary ballhandler in college, looks like his shooting was suspect before this season though. Only 69% from the line as well.

    6’5 with 6’11 wingspan and 250 pounds though, could be a grant williams type

    Nassir little has a lot of overlap of play style with Grant. Wouldn't be surprised to see him on the move, he's a masai type player. But we also already have 3 guys just like him who are better

    I still have Terry at 1 but the more I read about Minott the more I like him. He should be available at 33.
    His shot is so broken.

    There's pretty much no chance Terry is there at 33. Every mock has him 1st round now. His stock has been steadily rising.
    Funny thing is Bleacher Report's mock draft has Terry going to the Spurs at 20. The pick we traded lol.

    Here's another intriguing name to throw out there. Josh Minott. Weve worked him out so he's a possibility.

    Some key quotes about him.

    Today's NBA largely revolves around the position-less concept. And Minott is a perfect fit for that. He can handle the ball, distribute it, score at all three levels. He plays with a large amount of intensity and has a high IQ. The upside is what's most intriguing for NBA teams. While not exactly a project, Minott does have work to do.

    "... the analytics on Minott are really impressive, with a sky-high steal rate of a big forward (3.6 per 100 possessions in AAC play), a positive assist-turnover rate and a 14.4 percent rebound rate despite often paying next to a lottery center," wrote former Memphis Grizzlies vice president of basketball operations John Hollinger, who ranked Minott as his No. 10 draft-eligible prospect. "History says it would be folly to ignore a player who passes this deftly and gets his hand on this many balls at the defensive end."

    “If you draft him, he’ll be like a lottery pick in two years,” Hall of Famer Larry Brown said. “He’s young, long, athletic quick. He’s just got to grow and get better. He grew 2 inches when I was there. He’s that high-twitch athlete. So many NBA people have called me about him. A couple of years, you might have a diamond.’’

    David Roddy:

    "At 6-5 and 255 he’s built more like a football player but has an extremely high skill level with the ball and is incredibly efficient.
    Roddy has a surprisingly quick first step and can dance with the ball on the perimeter and blow by his man and get to the hoop. He’s a great ball-handler and an overall crafty offensive player. He’s also a big-time shot maker, hitting an outstanding 57% from the field and over 46% from 3.
    Roddy isn’t your typical NBA prospect but he fits in today’s NBA as a multi-dimensional forward who can play small-ball 4 or even 5."

    And with the 33rd pick, the Toronto Raptors zig while everyone else zags!
    What’s the downside?

    There's a lot of teams with multiple picks and reports of many of them willing to deal wouldn't be surprised if we try and grab another pick. We are going to need some more rookie scale contracts down the road when this core comes up for resigning

    I don't think we look at positions the way we used to. Pascal and Scottie were our PG's last year. Precious was a C, yet so was Scottie and OG at times. I I think they just like versatility. Can you switch on defense? Can you play 3 or 4 positions?
    Agreed. If anything, it seems true guards and true centres are at a major disadvantage with the way Toronto plays right now.

    Having said that, hopefully they are looking for some offensive firepower this off season either through the draft or otherwise.
