#29 Big Board: 


  1. Theo Maledon (big combo guard, can be role player short term with upside long term, play next to or replace Fred VanVleet)
  2. Tyrese Maxey (potential draft-night faller, but great fit for defense + finishing, Raptors likely to squeeze out potential scoring upside)
  3. Aleksej Pokusevski (weird player with an array of talents that the Raptors are uniquely suited to develop) 
  4. Zeke Nnaji (mobile big, would fit really well with Nick Nurse’s defensive scheme, stretch upside and roll ability good long term fit with FVV/OG/PS)
  5. Devon Dotson (quick PG who fits the defense and adds the element of rim pressure raptors are missing)
  6. Tyrell Terry ( sniper PG, Raptors development could unlock some upside, but poor fit next to Fred)
  7. Isaiah Joe (3pt sniper, with some self creation flashes, good defense and developing frame,nice fit on the wing)
  8. Tre Jones (defense + playmaking is a nice fit with Raptors core, good bet to become rotation player, more a FVV replacement than compliment)
  9. Tyler Bey (Defense + Events Creation) Bey would be a fun fit with the Raptors defensive core, fun small ball units and maybe development can unlock the shot
  10. Xavier Tillman (Defense + Playmaking) Raptors were super successful with Marc Gasol in the lineup, X is a younger, smaller version of that archetype who may have the same scoring concerns. 
  11. Paul Reed (backup forward, nice fit on defense, Raps can develop offense in G-League)
  12. Josh Green (3&D wing, nice fit on defense, Raps can hopefully develop shot and handle but iffy fit next to OG Anunoby [redundant?])
  13. Robert Woodard (3nD bench wing, good for rotation minutes as backup SF, Raptors struggled to find minutes here in the playoffs)
  14.  Leandro Bolmaro (potential creator, stash option, nice defensive fit at POA)
  15. Reggie Perry (lots of raw talent, but questions about mentality, nice project big for the Raptors)

Other options:

  • The Raptors have an interesting offseason ahead of them. They need to rebuild their depth with 3 core role players potentially leaving, and Terence Davis may be off the team after off-court issues. Toronto would be wise to move up from 59 in the second round and take advantage of the depth of the 2020 draft by aiming for a mid 40s pick to boost their bench. 
  • The Raptors could also move up from 29 to target someone they are high on that may not make it to 29. While that doesn’t mean moving up drastically, they could simply move up within 5 spots and get their guy.
  • Toronto doesn’t have any incoming future assets, but also only owes 3 future second round picks. The Raptors could trade back from 29 to the early 2nd while also gaining future draft capital.
