    My option isn't on the list (Beal and MKG),

    But realistically, I think the holes in DeMar's game are a bigger problem at SG than the holes in JJ's game at SF. From this perspective, I'd go with Beal and JJ.

    But from an overall talent perspective, I think MKG is easily the best wing in the draft. And I wouldn't want to pass him up. But pairing him up with DeRozan does nothing for me. If we draft MKG, I would hope DeRozan becomes expendable for a Mayo-type player.
    A James Johnson/MKG wing combo would be deadly on the defensive end, probably one of the best wing combo's in the game, from a defensive standpoint. I would like to see that!

    In this draft, the expectations are these players will be NBA contributors right away, and that's why it isn't a favorable choice for MKG/Beal to sit first.
    Oh I expect MKG/Beal to be NBA contributors right away, I just don't see them contributing as much as James Johnson/Demar Derozan on opening night.

    Rookies gotta prove themselves before they start in the NBA if you ask me.

    Why is Batum/MKG not an option? That would be a dream come true for any raptor fan.

    +1 on all counts

    Roscoes Chicken and Waffles is the best in L.A, it's a place that sees the best of athletes (NBA especially).

    Derozan/Gilchrist or Derozan/Beal.

    Why would you move MKG to SG? let's make it harder on a guy by playing him out of position. We already complain that we have a non shooting SG, so what would be different? J.J. and MKG would give nice energy, but we would struggle to score. If DeMar can work on his shot over the summer that could be deadly pairing. Remember he wasn't allowed to have contact with the coaching staff last summer. I think he will have a huge improvement over the offseason.

    DeMar and MKG all the way.

    Double D and MKG, unless I give up on DeMar.

    Also wouldn't agree with SG and SF being interchangeable - I would faceroll my keyboard if DeMar was slotted in at SF. Need the size and strength to shore up the D and help on the glass.

    Yeah, that was my total wet dream.

    Still possible but highly, highly, highly, highly, highly unlikely.
    batum and chandler is a mediocre wing duo in my eyes. DeMar and MKG has much more upside possible top 5 one -two punch in the league. Bargs, DeRozan and MKG is like our big 3
