The Toronto Raptors seemed to have taken a huge risk in the 2014 NBA Draft by reaching for Bruno Caboclo with the 20th pick. The Las Vegas Summer League is the first time most people have seen him and the rest of the Raptors’ possible prospects. Has Caboclo been one of the five standouts from Summer League for Toronto?

Forward John Shurna has made the most of his time in Vegas. Through three games, Shurna has put up 12.3 points, two rebounds and 1.3 steals per game on solid 47.4 percent shooting. He’s had his chances before, but he’s not letting this one go to waste.

Whiteside shined in the D-League last season, but hasn’t seen the floor all that often in Las Vegas. In just two games playing 16.5 minutes per game, Whiteside has been productive in his opportunity. He’s put up 6.5 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks per game in that time. Considering being used sparingly, he’s been a stud.

Buycks flew onto the scene last Summer League and has continued to do so this year. Though his efficiency hasn’t been as good as desired, he’s averaged 17.5 points, 4.5 assists, two rebounds and 0.5 steals per game. There’s no doubt he has more NBA chances waiting in the near future.

DeAndre Daniels has been trying to call his own number often and Vegas and has done a great job. Though he’s played just 21 minutes per game, he’s put up 11.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest while shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 40 percent from three. Daniels could wind up being a steal in this draft.

Caboclo has looked much better than almost anyone could’ve expected at Summer League. The Brazilian has put up 11.7 points, two rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes per game while also shooting 40.7 percent from the floor and 35.3 percent from deep. He’s still unpolished, but he looks like he could be a solid prospect in Toronto.
