7. Toronto Raptors – Jalen Green, G, G League Ignite
It’s tough to say where Jalen Green will be drafted – and I can make a case that he should be a top 3 pick in this year’s draft – but him dropping out of the top 5 would make any team happy. Especially one such as the Toronto Raptors, who have some reinventing to do during the offseason.
Green is a gifted offensive talent that while he still needs to develop on that end of the floor, will have the opportunity to be a special player on that end of the floor when his career is all said and done.
If he falls out of the top 5, it’ll be due to his less-than-stellar defensive tape. As talented as Green is on the offensive end, he leaves much to be desired defensively. And it’s quite frustrating considering he has the size and length to be great on that end of the floor too.
