The worst part about him is his basketball IQ. he makes me cringe when he gets the ball.

In terms of utility, he is probably a bottom 50 rotation player in the league. Maybe the most unwarranted, unnecessary extension I've ever seen to one of the most useless players I've ever seen. All you can do is lol at what a moron BC is. He probably heard good things about DeMar in the US select team scrimmages and watched some Drew League footage and thought "man...I'm so ahead of the game, I'm gonna lock him up for a bargain."

I hate his game as much as Bargs tbh. The way Ross and AA play is like a breath of fresh air after watching this guy constantly.

He just doesn't have "it".
Whatever "it " is he doesn't have it.
He's got hops and that's all, he has a first half jumper and a second half disappearing act.

At this point I couldn't care less. For me any deal that results in BCs immediate termination is fine, whatever asset it costs. No sacred cows.

I was a fan of Derozan but he is looking more and more like the worst $10 Million+ player in the NBA.

He's 2nd worst... behind Bargnani

Also to be fair his deal is 9.5 million a year

It's hilarious how we've all turned on DeMar, but....whatever, trade his arse to Pheonix or Sacramento

Dude needs like 5 seconds to process where he even is on the court. Then another few seconds to make a passive dribble or two, that doesn't force rotations or anything (in fact probably helps defense get more set), then a pass back out to Calderon because he has the faceup iso-ability of a scrub.

I've been saying this since last year.

DeMar for Tyreke or Jose/DeMar for Rudy Gay.

Demar is literally paid more than twice as much as he's worth per year. He's like a 4 mil a year talent. Like a 3/12 type of player. It's absolutely incredible how much he got overpaid, when there was no pressure for us to sign him with RFA coming up, with Demar coming off a bad season. At least the Bargnani one sort of made sense because he had made a big improvement the year before and everyone believed in his talent level.

He starts every game 3/3 on long twos, and then proceeds to chuck up more long twos. When he starts bricking them all, he drives the lane not looking to score, but to get to the line. He gets stripped or blocked, and proceeds to play matador defense on the other end.

He's garbage and has such an ugly game to watch. He's 4 years in and 8000+ minutes into his career. Who cares if he's 23, he's not getting much better. I don't care about his work ethic or his love for Toronto. I want a baller. Trade his ass for Tyreke Evans right now. Evans at least is a physical freak and has talent.

Another terrible contract for BC.

I'm always confused with the DeMar hate threads. He's not playing any worse than ever before. If anything he's a bit better.

He's not good, mind you. But did you people think he was going to get good because he studies game film at night? Like, if the game film tells him he can score easily by spotting up for a corner 3....

No, we just thought he would stay aggressive. He started off the season strong, he was posting up, passing the ball, playing better defense, but all that has gone away. Now he's just a jump shooter who just kills our offense every time he touches the ball.
