NBA Insiders Amin Elhassan and Bradford Doolittle break down the draft history, needs and potential picks of the 14 teams eligible for the NBA draft lottery this year. With some help from Chad Ford's Big Board of Top 30 prospects, we take a look at the Toronto Raptors.

On the court, they appear locked into a wing combo of Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan, which is an exciting tandem from an athletic standpoint.
