The Toronto Raptors draft season might start a bit earlier than usual in 2020-21, as the team’s losing streak and poor overall record forced them outside of the playoff picture over the last few weeks, leaving them as close to Oklahoma State star Cade Cunningham as they are to the postseason.

The Raptors only have one draft pick this season, meaning that the thought of punting on the rest of the year with the intent of getting Wholesale Toronto Raptors Jerseys the top pick in the draft is something that likely will garner some support within the Raptors organization.

However, if the Raptors don’t realize that those who don’t learn history are doomed to repeat it, they could find themselves Cheap Andrea Bargnani Jersey hoping that another wunderkind comes in to fix all of their issues, a strategy that hasn’t always worked out for the best for this team given their history of swinging and missing at the trade deadline.

Toronto has drafted some superstars in their history, as evidenced by Chris Bosh, but this club has had some colossal missteps high Cheap Chris Bosh Jersey in the draft. Why would you give up on 2020 for another look at what’s in the mystery box?

The Toronto Raptors draft history in the Top 10 isn’t amazing
After Bosh in 2003, only DeMar DeRozan has made an All-Star Team while a member of the Raptors. This includes some misses like Andrea Bargnani at No. 1 overall, Jakob Poeltl at No. 9, and the all-time bust known as Rafael Araujo at eighth overall in 2004.

Tanking is also completely antithetical to how the Raptors have built this team. Toronto didn’t become a champion by giving up and hitching their wagon onto the back of one young golden boy that would handle everything. They won by making Cheap DeMar DeRozan Jersey smart trades and developing an array of young players and castoffs.

Cunningham, USC’s Evan Mobley, and G League star Jalen Green could all be franchise cornerstones, but that doesn’t mean the Raptors should just give up on 2020-21 to get one of them, especially when the play-in tournament makes it even more likely for them to go on a deep run in the postseason.

The temptation to find the next DeRozan is tempting, but trying to go all-in for one unproven player is a strategy that has rarely worked out for the Raptors. Drafting well is incredibly important, but losing on purpose for a college kid is not something that Ujiri and Nurse should consider.

he’s uncovered a lot of Cheap Paul Watson Jr. Jersey duds and it wouldn’t be too

If there have been any positives to take away from the Toronto Raptors’ COVID-19 issues over the past few weeks, it’s been the team’s ability to really figure out what it has on the bench.

With Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby, Patrick McCaw, and Malachi Flynn all sidelines for over two weeks now, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse has been forced to dive deep into his rotation. For the most part, he’s uncovered Wholesale Toronto Raptors Jerseys a lot of duds and it wouldn’t be too surprising if some significant changes were made in the offseason to retool what appears to be Cheap DeMar DeRozan Jersey a lackluster Raptors bench. But there may be at least one hidden gem in there in the 26-year-old Paul Watson Jr.

Over the past five games, Watson has played 106 minutes, about 45% of his 237 total career minutes. It’s been the first extended look he’s had in the NBA and he’s done enough to impress Nurse. The most intriguing of his stats are his plus-minus. The Raptors have been outscored by 65 points over the Cheap Fred VanVleet Jersey past five losses and yet somehow Watson is plus-21 in his playing time, the highest of anyone on the team.

On Sunday against the Chicago Bulls, Watson played 27 minutes and was the only Raptors player in plus territory.

“It means he’s impacting the game pretty positively,” Nurse said. “We’re gonna need a little bit more shot-making probably out of him than he’s given us in the last few games. I think he’s doing everything else well, playing hard, defending, and rebounding, but when he gets those rhythm 3s he’s Cheap Norman Powell Jersey gonna have to step in and make a good share of them.”

Watson is just 4-for-16 on catch-and-shoot 3-pointers over the past five games. Not only is he missing some good shots, but he’s been a little hesitant to take his rhythm 3-pointers. It’s the kind of thing that comes with a major role change when suddenly you’re bumped from the back of the rotation to Cheap OG Anunoby Jersey the seventh man role seemingly overnight. Adjusting to that can be tough and takes confidence, Norman Powell said.

Back in 2015-16, Powell was in a spot not too dissimilar to Watson’s. He’d play a few minutes here and there Cheap Pascal Siakam Jersey and then he’d find himself stabled to the bench for days or weeks at a time. It wasn’t until late in the season that then-head coach Dwane Casey gave Powell a shot at significant minutes. His role back Cheap Patrick McCaw Jersey then was to come off the bench and provide defensive toughness and energy for 25-or-so minutes a night.

The first few games were rough, but Powell got some important advice from then-Raptors star DeMar DeRozan: stay aggressive.

Sometimes when you’re a back-of-the-bench player and you’re suddenly bumped into a much bigger role that advice can be tough to actualize. You’re trying so hard to do everything right that you start overthinking things  Cheap Malachi Flynn Jersey just to make sure you don’t make any mistakes. That, of course, is when the mistakes start happening, Powell said.

If you’re thinking on the court, you’re typically a half-second behind the play and that makes a huge difference, Powell said. That’s something he’s spoken to Watson about over the past year or so.

“He’s one of the guys that I talk to,” Powell said of Watson. “One thing I love about him is he’s always in the gym. He’s always working. He’s always very coachable and has an open ear to hear what I say.

“I’m always talking to him in the games to be aggressive. If you’re going to make a mistake, at least make it being aggressive and not thinking too much, letting the game come to you.”

Watson has shown he’s more than capable to come off the bench and provide some defensive intensity for stretches. He held his own Cheap Paul Watson Jr. Jersey against Zach Lavine on Sunday for a few possessions and he understands the defensive scheme well enough to stay consistent in rotations. The key for him, as Nurse said, is just playing in the flow on offence. The best shot in the Raptors’ offence is always the open shot and when Watson has it, Toronto needs him to take it.

After shooting 9-for-21 (42.9%) in the first half, the Suns took it up a notch in the second half to finish the game with a season-high 21 made 3s. Crowder knocked down six triples and Cameron Johnson hit four while both Booker and Mikal Bridges sank three triples apiece.

Though the Raptors finished the night shooting a very respectable 14-for-33 (42.4%) from deep, the 21-point difference from beyond the arc was way too much to overcome.

3. It sure looks like Pascal’s back

After a rough start to the season, Siakam looked much much more like himself.

It began in the first half, where Siakam made his presence felt early and often, scoring 19 points (on 7-for-10 shooting) to go along with four rebounds. He picked up where he left off over the final 24 minutes to finish the night with a game-high 32 points to go along with eight rebounds.

It was Siakam’s first time crossing the 30-point plateau since scoring 33 points on March 3, 2020, in … Phoenix. Things haven’t been great for Toronto to start the season but with this version of Siakam, things are sure to get better sooner rather than later.

4. Phoenix’s second unit got it done

The Suns’ bench made a big difference in this one.

Led by 16 points from second-year forward Johnson, Phoenix’s second unit outscored Toronto’s bench 42-26. Dario Saric added 15 points off the bench while former Raptors training camp invitee Cameron Payne dished out a game-high 10 assists in 16 minutes off the bench.

Even more troubling for Toronto is that outside of the starting five and Cheap Norman Powell Jersey, the team only got 13 points, nine of which came from Cheap Chris Boucher Jersey. Nick Nurse continues to tinker with his rotation, giving Cheap Yuta Watanabe Jersey and Cheap Malachi Flynn Jersey minutes, but he hasn’t seemed to have found the right combination just yet.

5. VanVleet rewrites the record book…

After hitting a 3-pointer in the first quarter, Cheap Fred VanVleet Jersey made it 39 straight games with at least one made triple, setting a new Raptors franchise record.

The last time VanVleet failed to connect on a 3? Dec. 8, 2019.

6. …And Lowry does, too

While VanVleet moved to No. 1, Lowry moved up to No. 5 on the franchise’s all-time rebounding list. Lowry entered the night needing six rebounds to surpass Cheap DeMar DeRozan Jersey, which he did in the opening half.

Lowry finished with nine rebounds to bring his total as a Raptor to 2,743.

Next up? Cheap Amir Johnson Jersey, who pulled down 2,836 rebounds in a Raptors uniform.

7. CP3 continues to ease his way in

The Suns have opened the season by winning six of their first eight games, and Chris Paul has yet to truly tap into that All-Star level we saw from him last year.

After finishing with 10 points (on 4-for-12 shooting) and eight assists in 31 minutes of action, Paul is now averaging 13.3 points and 8.3 assists while shooting 40.7% from the field and 33.3% from beyond the arc. Considering the fact that Paul essentially had no true training camp with this team, there’s still plenty that he’s figuring out about playing with them and vice versa.

That Phoenix is 6-2 without its All-Star point guard playing at his peak level yet should put the rest of the Western Conference on notice.

8. What’s next?

Toronto heads to Northern California to take on the Sacramento Kings on Friday at 10 p.m. on the TSN Network.
