If Toronto took Suggs we would've taken either Barnes or Kuminga at 5 and continued down this path of raw players who are long term projects that can't shoot and have limited scoring capabilities.

I'm completely fine with a backcourt of Fultz and Suggs. Fultz is a better floor general whereas Suggs is a true combo guard. They'll play well off each other. This gonna be a fun backcourt.

Whoever thinks Cole Anthony and RJ Hampton are starting quality guards is smoking some good sh*t.

Thanks Toronto image

Front office will try to sell us on position-less basketball again lol. Tried to make us believe forwards like siakam/og can consistently make plays/score.

Yea so we were contenders with Dwight Howard.

Raptors weren't contenders with DeRozan and Lowry and no one was giving them praise until that kawhi trade and 'ship. That also happened to be the break out seasons for Siakham and van fleet plus Nick Nurse was hired. That sole season switched the narrative about Toronto.

Like an average bx head would know better over a gm/president let alone the great masai uijiri

Bobby and Masai made a great pick by going for a DOG instead of talent who usually comes in droves and gets their a*s handed to them by the league once they realize talent can only take them so far.

Check andrew wiggins and KAT for reference.

ya'll dudes gonna eat your words. Barnes has a way higher ceiling than Suggs and with FVV and Flynn here, what's suggs got to offer? On the other hand, Scottie is a defense first play maker. but w/e, I was never that impressed with Suggs based on what I saw last year.

A lineup of OG-Siakam-Barnes and Boucher can cause problems in spurts. I'm excited to see what this kid will bring.

Fultz is the best playmaker and the most explosive of the 3. I think Suggs/Cole are similar in terms of their burst in the half court Suggs just has better size so heíll start.

All ends of the court will be covered on defense.

I hope Iím proven wrong. But he has no jumpshot, no in between game and an underwhelming ability to finish. Heís got more bust potential than Suggs.

Fultz can be devastating we saw that, the craftiness is still off the charts

The concern is the amount of hype with Suggs, and then Cole Anthony being a NBA fraternity guy... There's too many blue collar young guards for GMs to take a chance on Fultz panning out, especially with the media coverage. If he doesn't adjust and amount to wins... Man

Suggs played with a well above average team in Gonzaga, didn't prove anything by playing with 5 upperclassmen and running a free wheeling offense.

Will be interesting to see what he can bring because the Magic are bottom feeders with the way they been building that team.
