The 2020 NBA Draft is less than a month away and the Toronto Raptors own both the No. 29 and No. 59 selections.
As we quickly approach the Nov. 18 date of the draft, reports will continue to surface surrounding which prospects Toronto expresses interest in, as well as who the team elects to work out to get a closer look. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all teams are limited to a maximum of 10 in-person workouts, which adds importance to each specific choice.
Below, find a running list of the prospects that the Raptors decide to get a closer look at ahead of the upcoming draft.

Irving Mock: No. 28 pick to Los Angeles Lakers
Fawcett Mock: No. 22 pick to Denver Nuggets
Tyler Bey is a 6-foot-7 wing from the University of Colorado.
The 22-year-old spent three seasons at Colorado, averaging 13.8 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks during his junior season in 2019-20. Bey earned a number of honours this past season, including Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, Pac-12 All-Defensive Team and All-Pac-12 Second Team honours.
In his latest mock, NBA.com Draft expert Kyle Irving describes Bey as "a versatile defender, who can switch out onto the perimeter but also has the size and strength to defend bigger players in the paint."
Alex Kennedy of BasketballNews.com reported that Bey worked out for the Raptors on Oct. 25.
Malachi Flynn, G, San Diego State
Irving Mock: No. 23 pick to Utah Jazz
Fawcett Mock: No. 25 pick to Oklahoma City Thunder

As a redshirt junior in the 2019-20 season, Flynn averaged 17.6 points, 5.1 assists and 4.5 rebounds, earning Mountain West Player of the Year, Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year and consensus Second Team All-American honours.
Irving, who likened Flynn to Fred VanVleet, describes the San Diego State product as "a reliable decision-maker and defender perfectly suited for a team looking for a piece to help them win now."
As reported by Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated, Flynn worked out for the Raptors on Oct. 25.
Devon Dotson, G, Kansas
Irving Mock: N/A
Fawcett Mock: No. 54 to Indiana Pacers
