Bismack Biyombo at 5?

Bismack Biyombo at 5?

On nba.com, it says that Bismack Biyombo will probably get drafted fifth! What do you guys think?

The Raptors are in need for a center, but valanciunas fits better, as he is european will have an impact with Bargani and Calderon.

As a bigtime Raptor fan if Biyombo our guy then its best that we trade down in the lottery, pick up some assets along the way then draft him with our pick but don't take him at 5...yikes!

supposedly he was very impressive in Charlotte yesterday and showed good offensive moves and free throw touch, I don't see him getting past Charlotte.

As someone who lives in Toronto

Hoping for the well doing of the Raptors, I say, HELLLLLLL NO. Especially if the draft plays out Irving, Williams, Kanter, Valanciunas. If the Raptors take Biyombo over Knight, I lose a lot of hope in man kind.

Run on Bigs

I can see a run on bigs

Kanter @3

Jonas @ 4

Biyombo @ 5

I think it is a reach for him, but guess somebody has to buy into the hype!

If Knight drops to 5 and the Raptors pass him up for Biyombo, I'm putting out a hit on Colangelo...

Lol

Bradforms, I'm seriously hoping that happens. So that the Kings have a better chance at Knight.

Meh. This doesn't sound like an accurate rumor. The Raps reportedly like Kanter, Knight and Jonas more than Biyombo, while Irving and Derrick are obviously going sooner. That means, picking 5, one of the guys they really like will be there. Hence, no Biyombo.

WTF?

If they choose him 5th there making a huge mistake i mean Brandon Knight could still be on the board and they go with Bismak? he has shown he has almost no offensive game .... I know the raptors need Rebounding and Defence but this pick is a huge risk .... Bismack could be the next Hasheem Thabeet and Brandon Knight looks like a solid point guard prospect
