On Tuesday, the Raptors worked out Louisville guard Russ Smith, Arizona guard Nick Johnson, Missouri guard Jordan Clarkson, Buffalo forward Javon McCrea and Gonzaga forward San Dower. Afterward, Raptors director of scouting Dan Tolzman, who Masai Ujiri hired shortly after he took over as general manager last year, spoke with the media on those players and the entire draft, which he has been scouting all year long. On impressions of the draft as a whole: “It’s great. It’s extremely talented this year. I think … it’s a very good draft to have three [picks]. We’re kind of all across the board, too, at 20, 37 and 59. There is going to be a player on the board at all of those picks.” National Post
