Default Re: Kanter refuses to interview with Raps...

I seem to remember Ed Davis refusing to workout for us. Doesn't make **** all difference when prospects do this kind of shit, the sooner they learn that the better.

If Kanter is still there at 5, and we aren't too concerned about past injuries, we take him, and he plays for us. OR he flees back to Turkey, **** him, either way he doesn't make the rules.

He won't be there though, unless Cleveland has no interest in taking him.

So we may as well be ready to take Kemba, Valanciunas, Vesely, or Kawhi, barring a trade up situation. Or God willing, Brandon Knight falls to us somehow.

It's a good situation. He has a chance to start at center and play for an international crowd that'll accept him.

- Utah has Jefferson at C and also Millsap and Favors at PF.

- The Raptors are still run by Colangelo and still have Bargnani on the roster and everyone knows how inseparable they are. Bargnani is going to get a guaranteed 32-35 mpg regardless of his quality of play.

- Milwaukee has Bogut and Kanter will likely get picked long before they come up to pick.

If he's still around at #5 and the Raptors feel he is the best pick there, they should absolutely take him. He will come and he will play.

+1 - very smart post
