Toronto Raptors 2014 Draft Report Card

 

The Sports Network

(SportsNetwork.com) - Draft night was a huge head-scratcher for the Raptors.

They targeted Tyler Ennis as insurance if both Kyle Lowry and Greivis Vasquez left via free agency. He went 18th to the Phoenix Suns, so Toronto swept up Caboclo.

There isn't much information out there on the Brazilian, but he went way too early at No. 20. According to ESPN's Fran Fraschilla, "he's two years away from being two years away."

There was considerable talent available at 20 and the Raptors are a team on the rise. They could've used impact players to help them win now and Caboclo is not someone who will help anytime soon.

I'm not even in love with Daniels. He's too inconsistent and doesn't do one thing well enough to warrant minutes.

Masai Ujiri is a former Executive of the Year in this league. This was not one of his better nights at the helm.
