Will Toronto go PG in 2014 draft?

While it isn't yet clear which position the Toronto Raptors will address with their first-round pick in 2014, it's increasingly evident that the Raptors will probably not have a lottery pick.
Toronto currently sits at the No. 4 spot in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, with five more wins (22) than the No. 9 Detroit Pistons, and would need to falter in the second half of the season to end up back in the lottery. Considering that they'll likely end up with a pick in the late teens, ESPN's Chad Ford believes the Raptors could eye Syracuse freshman Tyler Ennis as the long-term replacement for Kyle Lowry and Greivis Vasquez. Other point guards who could be available when the Raptors pick include Arizona State's Jahii Carson, Xavier's Semaj Christon and Kentucky's Andrew Harrison.
