WRG 2012 Mock Draft - #8 Toronto Raptors

When you have been bad for a long time, you eventually wind up with a collection of lottery picks.  If you did it right, your team looks like the OKC Thunder.  If you didn't, it looks like us.

So here we are, ready to add another of these pieces.  We've already got a logjam in our frontcourt.  Those guys need court time.  We feel like we are done mixing the batter, and now we just need our bigs to bake together into a nice panful of ooey-gooey goodness.

What we need most is a PG to replace the one we will not re-sign after this season, but this draft doesn't offer that - at least not this high.

So we were looking at some really nice guards we thought would be available at this pick.  We think there are a few who would give us what we need - more versatility, more explosiveness, better shooting and tougher defense.  We know a lot about these guys, and we would have been very comfortable picking one of them but we got Brad Beal instead so YEEHA!

The Raptors select Bradley Beal, SG, Florida

"Wait, TORONTO? Can I still play for the USA?"
