Hard to say at what spot he'll go, but at least it takes away some of the stress of HAVING to maximize our shot at getting into the top 4. Again, based on the OG precedent, Ziaire with his injury history seems have the type of profile the Raptors have no problem drafting - i.e. pouncing when a stud slips down the draft board.

I wouldn't say Moody is a safe pick. I sorta get a Wiggins vibe from him. I hope he gets drafted ahead of us.


That's a good comp! Shorter and less athletic Wiggins.

This comp for Moody makes no sense. Moody is not a slasher, he's a shooter. From what I've seen he doesn't have any sort of motor issues and is a really good defender.

Moody reminds me of Steve Smith with a touch of Jeremy Lamb.

I think he's a safe bet to be a 3 + D guard, though I have his upside as a starter rather than All-Star.

Baylor made Kispert look so human. Now expand that to NBA competition. He couldn't get his shot off to save his life. It surprised me how athleticly deficient Gonzaga was. I now think Kispert could drop like a stone. Gonzaga knows how to play but the Zags I want are Suggs and ex Zag Petrusev.

Yes, he would have to improve significantly as a ball handler and shot creator for him to reach All-Star level. I think someone like Keon Johnson has a more attainable All-Star ceiling.

Raptors have 7% odds at the first pick. The Wolves - 14%.

The change in odds really makes it anyone’s guess. Maybe we get lucky for once.

Wolves getting gifted another first pick would be ridiculous though.

Mathurin is high on my list. Queta is interesting due to his quick feet and passing but something about him doesn't excite me. He's kind of sluggish or deliberate in his movements like a typical old school big. I'm looking for more quick twitch explosion in my center unless they're uber skilled like Gasol.

My other favs:

Tre Mann
Charles Bassey
Joel Ayayi
Chris Duarte
Johnny Juzang
Marcus Bagley
Isaiah Livers
Isaiah Todd
Ariel Hukporti
Scottie Lewis
Drew Timme
Herbert Jones
Kessler Edwards
Jaime Jaquez Jr.
Julian Champagnie
Taevion Kinsey
Raiquan Gray


You think Juzang will fall to 2nd after the tourney that he had? If he does, I would love him here in a 6th man role.

Not sure. He was in the 2nd round picture pre-tournament and now he's likely to go anywhere between 15 to 30. Lots of good players slip to that early second range who many expected to be first rounders, that's why those early seconds are so valuable. Terry and Maledon are good examples from last year. I'd personally consider Juzang much earlier if we were able to trade down from 7 with New York for picks 15, 21, and 33.

I'd take Kispert if he drops heavily to a late first. I think he's a pick 18-25 range.
Prediction, April 2021. Raps will get the #9 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and select Moses Moody.

Lowest ceiling of the top 5 forsure. But if he can be a 90% prime healthy Brandon Roy... Oh boy

Dream scenario is we get to draft him at our pick, which I suspect if history repeats yet again will be #9.

He is a prime Korver level shooter will give him that.

Seems like these over age shooters never hit the potential they were supposed to. What's different between him and the crazy season Mcdermott had in Creighton?

Joe Harris and Duncan Robinson are recent successes
Jason Kapono even carved out a nice career

I can hope that Petrusev is there as a 2nd pick like Simonivic last year.

I'd also hope that Todd is there in the 2nd round! I think he could be Rashard Lewis 2.0.

If our first rounder this year only turns out to a Harris/ Robinson level player it was a waste of a tank
