I agree. DD reminds me a lot of Bosh. He could very well be great for some rather consistent production, but if trading him helps land a more obvious impact player, it is definitely worth considering. However, I don't see many options out there. Totally happy keeping him and hoping for the best.

DD won't land us a better player unless we add something more

Portland wouldn't trade Batum for DD and Bargs together

I expect DD to keep getting better..there's no point in actively trying to trade him. You do so if the right deal comes along.

It's beyond ridiculous :lol:


Lmfao, it's just absolutely silly. DeRozan playing like a top 5 guy at his position at 23 years old, but NAH MAN. He doesn't have that potential, let's trade him for Tyreke freaking Evans.

I think this is how Colangelo gets away with his front office decisions. As stupid as he is, he's 1000 times as smart as a lot of the posters on this board. I'm sure this guy also thinks Bargnani needs more money and that he is going to blossom into a Dirk-Hakeem Olajuwon hybrid in no time.

I firmly believe what makes a lot of teams good is consistency in the line up. We cant just keep looking to move all our best players, we need to build a team of good players and keep them. The ones that arn't performing and are not playing the style of basketball that the team wants to play should be moved. Cough Bargs Cough.

I would sell high on DeRozan because his upside is really overrated. I'm sure there's a few GMs out there who can be sold into thinking he has all-star potential (unfortunately, our GM is one of those fools).

Lol, my fav part was how you said in the same post: I think he can be an all-star BUT I don't think he can be a star. Worst post ever. I'm still not entirely convinced Derozan is for real, but if he keeps playing like this, why the **** would we trade him for some guy who hasn't been able to play for 3 years???

Lets be honest here, Demar would be an expensive trade right now I cant really think of another SG Id rather have btond Gordon or Harden. Who else? It would be tough to find a trade that would make sense. Man, just wait till Lowry comes back

ok homer, Portland would be the idiots :roll:

Batum is averaged more points, more steals, more blocks, more rebounds, more assists, shooting on much better efficiency while playing great defense.

20.8 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 3.2 APG, 2.3 STL, 1.3 BLK, 0.608 TS%, above average D

versus

18.9 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 2 APG, 1 STL, 0.2 BLK, 0.520 TS%, average to below average D

You really think Portland's gonna make that trade?

Tyreke is just so much clearly worse than DeMar right now.

So we finally have a good young backcourt, and you want to break it up?

Reke didn't get an extension and since he's had down years since his ROY 20/5/5, he can be had on the FA market for a better contract than DD I think. I'd love to see us bring him in to play SF; a good distributor, good scorer, not completely **** defensively. He'd really give us a boost.

I would go **** if MLSE let BC pull an AA kind of offseason and go get Evans/Smith/(Millsap/Al Jeff)

Of course you get Reke and a Utah forward first to convince Smoove to come to White Vegas.

Lowry/DeRozan/Smith/Utah Big/Bargnani
Calderon (re-signed to smaller contract)/Evans/Kleiza/Amir/JV

Derozen is exactly the type of player we want to keep. One with flaws. Whenever we have had players with zero to just a few flaws in their game, they left us. We need to build a core that will stay long term. Derozen is the type of player we have the chance of keeping.

But I don't think he has that that "it" factor or mentality of a star player. We already have another SG on the roster, Ross. I think we should look for a deal for a guy like Tyreke Evans, who I think has the talent to be a great player in the league, provides us with a guard who can break down the D and take over games late in the fourth. A guy like Casey can whip him up into shape.


I'm extremely confused by this post. You want to trade him when you think he'll be an All-Star? To boot you want to trade him for an underachieving Tyreke Evans who has an attitude problem? My minds blown.

I wanted to rip the OP for the ridiculousness of his post but you guys have done a marvellous job. Made me feel better. Kudos.
