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

Arizona's Nick Johnson has one year left of eligibility and a decision to make. If he remains in school, the Wildcats would most likely be a preseason favorite heading into next year. If he declares for the draft, Johnson would join the majority of his fellow Wooden Award finalists in moving to the NBA. In Los Angeles for the Wooden Award Gala Friday, Johnson doesn't know what is next for his playing career. "I'm not sure yet," Johnson told Mark Willard of ESPN LA 710 AM. "The season just ended a few weeks ago. I'm still trying to get over that. I'm talking to my family, my support system and coach Miller. He's been through it a few times with some guys and I'm just talking to him and trying to get the right information." Arizona's Sports Page
