Well the reviews of Carney were very good so it is strange that he was not called for a workout! Why get another big guy when the team is stocked some what with them. Unless a real good center is grabbed (maybe O'bryant can be great immediately), there is more reason to go for a SF

I don't think there's a chance Morrison goes first unless Toronto trades the pick. I'm pretty sure Aldridge will be the pick if they keep him. Bosh wants him there, and he has yet to sign the extension...

I'll make another mock a few days before the actual draft. Meanwhile, if anyone is interested, check this link for clips of the top prospects:

Note: I posted the link without checking it first. It's mostly analysis of the top guys, with some highlights here and there.

I've been reading that Bargnani is the Raptors favourite. I've also read that Bargnani is not that thin, from two two articles written by guys that saw the games of the finals that Bargnani is currently playing in. Interesting to see what will happen if Aldridge is not picked by the Raptors

Yeah, they're talking more about Bargnani than any other player, but I think it's a smoke screen to get better offers for the pick. I could be wrong, tho.

The raptors need more talent, period! If Aldridge can be there starting Center or Bosh can be the Center and Aldridge the PF, then the Raptors are better going that path because they could really use a very good big player. PG is likely an issue, as Mike James might leave, but they need the big guy more as PG is easier to replace

yep alot of this draft will hinge on not only what the raps do, but chicago, like if they were to trade the pic or not.
