    With a day to go in the draft my top picks for the Raps at 33 remain the same as it did long before the combine. Dalen Terry if he's there and with all this talk about Raps potentially moving up I still think he'd be a great option with a pick in the 20's.

    The next guy on my list at 33 is Max Christie. I only looked at guards and wings as I think that is the direction they go in the draft.

    I wouldn't be mad if they traded out of the draft if they can't move up to get a guy they want. The players I've looked at in the second round have been kind of underwhelming.

    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!
    I heard mention of him on one of the "pundit" podcasts ... compare is a PJ Tucker type intensity/character and his 3pt. shooting improved greatly this past year. I sense a duplication of Champagnie skills & traits ... I like this type of player finds in the later parts of a draft. Saw a report that he worked out for the Raps.

    ESPN has us taking David Roddy in the mock released today.
    They probably read my comment on the previous page of this thread. Stupid ESPN, do your own research.

    maybe they are happy
    Well they will be happy as long as the guy they pick is a bit off everybody else's radar.

    I would be a lot happier if they still had the 20th pick. It will be interesting to see who the Spurs pick as they also have the 25th pick in the draft so they can go for the safe pick at the 25 and go for the pick with the greatest upside at 20.

    ESPN has never been right about us and who we draft.

    Bobby also mentioned they usually take a look someone the 2nd time if he didn't have such a good try out the first time.

    The whole thing could be also a smokescreen to keep teams from not knowing who the Raptors are interested in cause the Raps usually have good drafts.

    Could be they already found their guy or have been working on trading the pick.
    Yeah was thinking the latter or maybe a euro league player perhaps?

    Interesting that the Raps worked out all those players but didn't invite anyone back for a second workout.

    I mean, really? if you're a prospect would you really want to go to the Kings? how many prospects have they ruined? where you get drafted matters. Look at Wiggins now. He's a completely different player since he got traded to Golden State.
    I mean I get it, but it just reminds me of Stevie Franchise not wanting to play for Van. Player empowerment may have gone too far when undrafted players start turning down teams.

    Reminds me too much of Trey Lyles where he teases you with versality but lacks the focus to make an impact throughout the game (I hope he proves me wrong).
    There's so many red flags with Baldwin. That's why his name keeps dropping. And if you watch his highlights, he's not even that good of a player. When I watch him play I see a poor man's Kyle Kuzma.

    I believe Jaden Ivey said he doesn't want to be drafted by SAC. Certainly not professional. That franchise is at rock bottom.
