Despite Draft Night Surprise, it's Easy to See why Toronto Fell in Love with Scottie Barnes

Let's start with this: Bobby Webster and Masai Ujiri are really, really good at their jobs. This isn't to say the Toronto Raptors made the right decision on Thursday night by selecting Scottie Barnes with the No. 4 pick over Gonzaga's do-it-all point guard Jalen Suggs. It was a controversial pick and one that will be analyzed for better or for worse for many years to come. But what we do know is Webster and Ujiri took the player they believed has the most long-term upside, the player they felt was the best available at the time, and the player they think gives the organization the best chance to bring another championship to Toronto.

Raptors Select Florida State's Scottie Barnes with No. 4 Pick

This is what all that frustration was for. This is why Kyle Lowry played nine of the Toronto Raptors' final 27 games following the March 25th trade deadline. It's why Raptors president Masai Ujiri asked "play-in for what?" during his year-end press conference. The Raptors knew their 2020-21 roster was flawed, fatally so. Instead of going for it, they pivoted, hoping that it would all be worth it.

Jalen Suggs Talks Raptors Development, says Whoever Passes on him will Regret it

Jalen Suggs had a simple message for the Toronto Raptors and the three other teams drafting atop the 2021 NBA Draft: pass up on me and you'll regret it. It's fair to poke holes in Suggs' game, at least as a truly top-tier prospect. At 6-foot-4, 205 pounds he doesn't possess the kind of rare physic that usually wows scouts. He shot just 33.7% from three-point range and his 2.9 turnovers per game were a lot for someone who prides himself on being a supremely skilled passer.

Toronto originally had until Tuesday night to make a decision on Hood's $10.9 million non-guaranteed contract for next season, but the two parties have agreed to push back that deadline to August 3, the team announced Tuesday. While Hood is likely to be waived eventually, the added flexibility buys Toronto a little bit more time to work out a trade involving Hood.
