Raptors Among Rivers Preferred Teams
Austin Rivers is either a really, really good salesman or he really, really wants to begin his NBA career in Toronto.
With his freshman year at Duke behind him, the son of Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers continued an abbreviated tour of potential NBA landing spots at the Air Canada Centre practice gym on Thursday.
The combo guard — he can play either point guard or shooting guard but the Raps consider him right now to be more of the latter — made it abundantly clear that he considers Toronto among his top choices to call his name on draft night in just under two weeks. The key word there being “among.”
Rivers said between himself, his father and his agent, the trio has scheduled just five workouts. Toronto was No. 2. He will also visit Washington, Portland and Cleveland. He has already been to New Orleans.
