Raptors have no less than 8 guards coming to town split into 2 different sessions. The headliners of that this group are Austin Rivers the Duke stand out that has a dad that coaches the Celtics and  Jeremey Lamb from UConn who some have questioned his desire and passion for the game. Lamb with be in the first session and Rivers in the second and there will be a third solo session for UNC Forward Harrison Barnes. Here is the complete list of workouts scheduled for today.

The Raptors are certainly looking at a lot of different folks and seem to be having no trouble getting some of the big names to come to town for workouts. Raptors are sure doing their due diligence and then some which might be for show in terms of keeping their 8th pick and not actually trading it. Still you can't help but think that might be the case but at least Raptors will have a good idea of what they are passing on if that is what they choose to do.
