That said, originally projected at eighth in a deep draft, they are now in the highly-touted top-4.
Cade Cunningham and Evan Mobley are all but guaranteed to go with the first two picks, but the choice of either Jalen Green or Jalen Suggs is an amazing “Problem” to have.
So who is a better choice, Suggs or Green?
Not that they have the choice – being they are picking fourth and not third – but what do both of those picks mean for the division rivals?
Jalen Suggs just guided his Gonzaga Bulldogs to a 31-1 overall record, let’s start with that.
He is probably the best option to fundamentally replace Lowry, being a very similar player to the 6x All-Star, but with a much more athletic approach to the game.
I am not sure if Suggs has the capability to be the number-one option on a successful team, but he would not have to be that on a loaded Raps squad.
Now, being a number-one option is a challenge for some, but not for Jalen Green.
