NBA Draft Rumors: Toronto Raptors meet with Jordan Adams, James Young


The Toronto Raptors were one of the surprises of the NBA this season. After dealing forward Rudy Gay, the Raptors took off, riding their dynamic back court of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan to an Atlantic Division Title and a berth in the playoffs.

The Raptors went to the wire in the first round, but were defeated by the Brooklyn Nets in the final seconds of game 7 and were eliminated from the postseason.

Although they have a big decision regarding Lowry’s future to make, they will make a decision in the NBA Draft first. They have already talked to several prospects.

According to Ryan Wolstat of The Toronto Sun, the Raptors interviewed former UCLA Bruins’ guard Jordan Adams.

Adams averaged 17.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.6 steals and 2.3 rebounds per game last season. Draft Express ranks him as the 26th-best overall prospect.

Wolstat adds that the Raptors also met with former Kentucky Wildcats’ swingman James Young.

Draft Express ranks Young as the 15th-best prospect. He put up 14.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game last season.
