NBA Draft 2016: Raptors select Jakob Poeltl ninth overall

Last year, the Toronto Raptors set a franchise record for wins with 56 and also advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time in team history. They look to continue that by picking up one of the best shot-blockers in Utah’s Jakob Poeltl.

Poeltl played two years for the Utes and made the absolute most of his time there. He had a big impact for the team and should do just that for the Raptors.

Jakob Poeltl averaged 17.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game last season. He also won PAC-12 Player of the Year with the Utes.
