    Why would we want an older ready to play center when we have 2 under contract?
    Edey is older but still likely needs time in the lab to develop. I can see him going to the G League for whatever team drafts him. I am trying to figure out who the most Raptory players are, and I think because of his passport he'll be on Masai and Bobby's short list. But I could be reading that wrong (and I sort of hope I am).

    Ultimately I'm good with whoever the Raptors want. But if I had to make a pick, I don't think I'd take him. I feel like we should prioritize guys that would be ideal next to Scottie as we are building our roster around him. So more shooting and more size at the wing position so Scottie doesn't have to defend there as much. If we get a C I'd want one that has more defensive upside. I sense Edey could be a bit of a liability defensively in today's NBA.

      Yeah I think you nailed it here in that Edey is a terrible fit with Scottie. Makes no sense to draft him beyond he's Canadian. I'd rather exploit that when he becomes a free agent if he sticks in the league that long.

      • The way they're tanking makes me think they really like somebody in that top 6 range. Sarr and Risacher are the top two on most draft boards but my money is on Tidjane.

            I made my prediction Edey is gone by pick 20. What is your prediction?
            Not so much as a prediction. Just personally don't think he is going to pan out. Wouldn't take him higher then 40 if I was a GM.

              And he made some great passes too, showing some good vision from up there.

              The other thing that jumps out is just his pure strength. Dude had 3 guys hanging off his arms and still got a shot up and in.

              I feel like a good NBA coach can cure alot of his reflexal instincts on defense.

              • McCain from Duke with the Indy pick. Thoughts?
                If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

                  I'd take a flyer on him with the second round pick if he goes that low but I think there's a number of teams that would take a chance on a 7'4 300 pound big man before we will.

                    Not to seem na?ve but how are we tanking? Scottie has a broken hand. Poeltl a dislocated finger. RJ had tragedy. IQ had a death in the family. Can the remaining players really beat many other teams in the league?

                      I don't think he would be there at 17.

                        Even before RJ lost his brother it was like he and IQ were taking turns playing every other game. They aren't playing Boucher either.

                            Forgot about that. Not that they were playing him much before that either.

                              We were healthy more or less. Boucher was getting DNPCD's. Yak broke his pinky. Boucher had one more DNPCD , the 41 pt blowout. Then played the next 2 games, and got injured the 2nd game.

                              • i am honest surprised at the eddy love when i first mentioned him years back i got destroyed.

                                how zach would fit with scottie depends on how you see scottie. when i look at scotties abilities there are 3 directions you can go.

                                1. PF what kelly and porter are playing right now which means you have a redundancy

                                2. scottie pippen aka inspector gadget

                                3. chancey billups , sam cassell, magic johnson slow big guard for their era.

                                i already see scottie changing his playstyle because we dont know how to use him. now that we changed are team.

                                anyways everyone needs to include history as part of their studies because there are common knowledge skills that this generation has no idea about. a great example is half court basketball and how to use it to save energy.

                                the almost complete lost of center skills and almost the complete lost of PF skills. dribble dribble dribble random dash up or drive through 3-5 people.

                                scottie
                                gradey
                                cody
                                kelly/porter
                                zach

                                thats a team with different skill sets take out cody put RJ basically what i am trying to say is if you match the skills sets with traditional roles there is 50+ years of basketball to figure out your sets.
