Rapts and the 5th

Looks like they are gonna stretch for bismack...If charlotte moved up for biyombo this would really screw them over lol

Starting to hear pretty strong signals that Biyombo is going to Raptors at 5.

Hmmm

Bargnani is all about offense and Biyombo is all about defense so they would complement each other nicely. And of course, he's foreign.

Wow why do kids even bother

Wow why do kids even bother playing college ball for a season. Apparently all you need is a good game in the Nike Hoops Summit and have some decent workouts and then boom, top 5 pick.

I do not like this pick much, really think the Raptors need to stay safe and grab Knight, they aren't in a position in my opinion to be making such a huge gamble. It is a way to help out the leagues 5th worst defense in ppg but still.

Follow up

Don't be surprised if the Raptors select Bismack Biyombo at #5. It sounds like Bryan Colangelo was behind his last-minute green room invite.

I knew it was a possibility, but that'd screw my mock draft, lol

I have a hard time believing they'd pass up talent like Brandon Knight for someone as raw as Bismack

Wtf just happened...looks like Cleveland does want immediate results for the fans after all. Raps HAVE TO pick Knight he was handed to them.
