Draft superb athletes in the second round, guys that make your jaws drop, you have a much better chance of molding them into something most of the time then you do the guy who grinded it out 4 years at Duke.

That being said, 2 names clearly stand out to me:

James White
Bobby Jones

I think getting either or at the 35th pick would be solid, both can be made into great defenders on the wing with Morris Peterson. James White takes the edge over Bobby Jones because he has that "WOW" factor. White will put fans in the stands, and will probably win the dunk competition, not only that but he can also turn out to be a good basketball player.

Other then these two, I think you just take the best player available at a positon of need. I don't necessarily believe that because we're a Canadian team, we need to take a Canadian in Denham Brown, if he's good enough for the pick, take him, if not, then let him go.
