2. SG Josh Green
Toronto might suddenly end up with three first-round picks from the 2020 NBA Draft if this deal does through. Not only will they have drafted Malachi Flynn at No. 29 and traded for No. 20 pick Precious Achiuwa, but the No. 18 selection in Green might be on his way up north in a Dragic trade.
Green didn’t get on the floor much in his rookie season, but the former Arizona star looks like everything Masai Ujiri wants in a guard. Standing just over 6-5, Green is a premium athlete for the position with a penchant for skying to the basket and making some stops on the defensive end.
The Raptors could develop Josh Green into a quality guard.
Green, a 36% 3-point shooter with a low volume of triples in college, needs to improve as a shooter, but Ujiri seems willing to add any shooting deficient player with the idea of turning their shots around after a quick convo with Nick Nurse. If he fixes his jumper, the sky is the limit.
It might be tough for Green to get a ton of minutes due to the presence of Gary Trent Jr. as the starter, but Green could assume the starting two-guard role, eliminating any potential ball-handling friction between Dragic and Malachi Flynn in the process. Ujiri will almost assuredly ask for Green in any Dragic deal.
