2011 NBA Mock Draft: Is Jan Vesely the Toronto Raptor’s New Chris Bosh?
2011 NBA Mock Draft and Is Jan Vesely the Toronto Raptor’s New Chris Bosh?
The Toronto Raptors lacked a strong presence down low even when Chris Bosh was there, so the need is tenfold now.
Bosh has left town and left the franchise in a bad position, which is mostly the organizations fault more than Bosh’s.
Now that the Raptors have the No. 5 overall pick in the NBA Draft, they will be looking to add an instant impact player. It seems the perfect fit would be Czech Republic forward/center Jan Vesely.
Vesely has good size and offensive talent and could be a legitimate starter for the Raptors for years to come, or at least until he is a free agent.
If he can add some weight to his frame, Vesely could have the potential to be just as solid a defender as he is an offensive player.
