We have a trade! The Denver Nuggets trade the #11 pick, Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and Nate Robinson to the Toronto Raptors for the #20 pick, Amir Johnson, Greivis Vasquez and John Salmons. With the eleventh pick, the Toronto Raptors select:

Dario Saric, F, Croatia

Statement from Raptors general manager Dane Carbaugh: Saric possesses an above-average playmaking skillset from the forward position.

At 20 years old, the Croatian forward already has experience playing professionally abroad, where he led the Adriatic League in scoring last season while carrying a high usage rate.

Toronto is excited to add a forward who has the ability to shoot, pass from the wing and post up on the block, which should compliment their current roster.

The hope is that, with Saric on the ball, it will allow DeMar DeRozan, Terrence Ross and Wilson Chandler to create havoc for opposing defenses in off-ball situations under head coach Dwane Casey.

We are the North.

    This site lost all credibility when he said Philly trades their picks for Gordon Hayward. Hayward cannot be involved in any trades before the free agency period begins which is 3 weeks after the draft.
