The 2021 NBA Draft Lottery took place at 8:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, June 22nd to decide the front half of the first round of the 2021 NBA Draft. The Toronto Raptors were awarded the No. 4 pick in the first round of the draft following the lottery draw. The Raptors was had the seventh-best odds to win the No. 1 overall pick at 7.5 percent. Here we’re going to take a look at where the Raptors are drafting and who they should look to take.
Who should the Toronto Raptors take with the No. 4 pick?
The Raptors might try to bring back Kyle Lowry, but he could be on the hunt for a new team after coming close to being moved at the trade deadline this past season. Jalen Suggs is a natural fit in Toronto at the point guard position and can play from Day 1. He’s a hard-nosed defender who is also a strong distributor offensively. Jalen Green is also an option here. Masai Ujiri has been right more often than not in his evaluation of players.
