That’d leave Gonzaga point guard Jalen Suggs to the Raptors at No. 4.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
With Cade Cunningham a solid No. 1 to Detroit now, Houston and Cleveland continue to trend toward Jalen Green and Evan Mobley with the second and third picks, respectively, sources tell ESPN.

On the draft front — according to the intel I’ve been able to gather — the Raptors have zeroed in on Gonzaga’s six-foot-five two-way guard Jalen Suggs as their preferred choice if he’s available, though six-foot-nine do-it-all defender Scottie Barnes of Florida State would be a more than welcome fallback option if Suggs is off the board.
The Magic have the No. 5 pick and have been linked to Florida State forward Scottie Barnes. However, it’s smokescreen season. A trade could also disrupt this increasingly likely start to the draft.
