The Toronto Raptors got a bit of luck on Tuesday night, moving up from the seventh-best odds into the top four. They’ll select No. 4 in the 2021 NBA Draft, which takes place July 29.

The jump is especially special in a stacked draft year. With the top four, they’ll likely have a shot at either Jalen Green or Jalen Suggs, with Cade Cunningham and Evan Mobley as a consensus top two. The difference in talent between these four, though, is less than in recent years — this is going to be a significant addition for the Raptors, whoever it is.

More analysis to come in the coming days. Who do you like at that draft pick?
