  • Raptors Closing In On Second 1st Round Pick

    If BC manages to get one around the 20th spot hopefully the Raptors will be able to grab James and in fact draft him.



    Wherever he winds up, he will be on my all favorite rookie list in 2010-11.

      I really like Soloman Alabi, particularly after PHD Steve's podcast. I think if we take a small like Bradley at 13 we should look at taking Alabi. If we take a big like Udoh or Whiteside or something, I think Damion James or Bledsoe are great choices. I am actually starting to like this draft class, I think there are a lot of guys who are going to surprise people. There are so many people in that range where they are just a step or two away from being in the top ten (Whiteside needs to put on weight, Bradley needs to switch to the point, Bledsoe is an unkonwn because of his limited play behind Wall, etc...) that a couple of the outliers are bound to develop into special players. I really hope we can get a couple of guys in the first round.

        If they buy a pick in the 20's I think they need to go for the best player available. I don't believe they would want to gamble too much on a purchased pick. This is why I think they should look at Bledsoe. The guy is going to contribute to a team for sure and you can't say that about to many guys for certain when you get to that portion of the draft.

          I like Bledsoe, Seraphin and Alabi for a late first rounder.

            Depending on how late this pick is, none of those guys could be on the list. Alabi will probably go to the Celtics, and won't fall past OKC. Blesdoe will be taken by one of Memphis' 20ish picks. Seraphin is early-mid 20s I believe. If we end up with something like Orlando's pick we're not going to have many options. BC should really try to go for something in the early 20s or else we'll just be looking at guys like Willie Warren.

              Anything can happen late in the 1st round... There's usually at least 2-3 guys that fall who were expected to go top 20 or even in the lottery. Guys we would consider at 13 like Luke Babbitt, Hassan Whiteside, Daniel Orton, could easily fall into the 20's. And there's nothing wrong with grabbing an early second rounder like Gani Lawal or Armon Johnson if we really like him.

                It would be great to come out of the draft with 2 of:

                BIG:
                Davis
                Orton
                Alabi


                Wing/PG:
                Aminu
                George
                Bradley
                Bledsoe

                But would it be a problem if we got Willie Warren late? High upside, athlete... etc.

                  I think if Paul George is available (if we end up getting a pick in the 20s) we should take him
                  he has a tonne of upside and could be a replacement for Hedo if he get traded

                  They could also look at a player like Bledsoe if they decide to go big at #13

                    Coming out with Ed Davis and Eric Bledsoe would be a coup.

                      Are suggesting the Raptors pick George later, because it's a good possibility he'll be gone before they pick 13th. I like him better than most other suggestions at 13, if available.

                        With the second pick I would absolutely LOVE to get Eric Bledsoe! He looks like a stud and has that NBA ready frame at 19! he is going to be a player
