Default ISH Mock Draft - #9 Overall - Toronto Raptors

#1-Blake Griffin
#2-Ricky Rubio
#3-James Harden
#4-Brandon Jennings
#5-Hasheem Thabeet
#6-Tyreke Evans
#7-Johnny Flynn
#8-Stephen Curry

I think Demar DeRozan is the choice here for the Raptors. They desperately a good wing player, and I think Demar can fill that up well for them, he shows alot of promise.

I agree here with DeRozan... only other player I think they would consider is Johnson maybe.

Demar Derozan.

Demar Derozan Comparison=Vince Carter.

Vince Carter 1st team=Raptors.

Nah,but finally a wing player who can create.

DeRozan. Anthony Parker's like 52. Looking at their roster, other than Calderon their G rotation is garbage.

Curious whether the fact that DeRozan doesn't want to work out for Toronto will be a significant deciding point. Does he/his agent just overvalue Demar's stock and they assume he'll got around top 5?

Jordan Hill falling this far would be tempting for the Raptors, especially with Bosh muttering about going to Miami.

But we so completely lack SGs that I have to go with Demar Derozan and hope we retain Bosh. Even if he's just a rich man's Ronnie Brewer, I'll be happy.



Can you imagine how ****ing stoked Milwaukee's front office would be if they managed to get Jordan Hill with the 10th pick? He would be perfect next to Bogut, and for a low price. He's a bit overrated, but there is virtually no chance he falls past the Wizards at #5. ****, if Memphis takes Rubio, the Kings would most likely take Hill, and wait to draft John Wall next year.

Demar Derozan, if he's available don't see the Raps passing on him.

I didn't know he didn't want to work out in Toronto. The Raps are right in the area that he's projected. Sounds like he might have a case of Francis-to-Vancouver-itis.

It's definitely possible that Hill falls past 5 in the draft. He's my pick to slide on draft day and I think he could get into the teens easily. Look at Lopez last year who everyone thought was going #3 to (then) Seattle and fell all the way to 10. Hill really reminds me of Theo Ratliff for some reason.


As for the Toronto pick...Demar Derozan.

It'll be Henderson on DeRozan...probably DeRozan. He seems to be getting more love from draft experts and the like and the Raps need a wing player.
