Sometimes you have to take the biggest of risks!
Way to take my post completely out of context yet again, but hey, I'm not surprised with you. That's what you do because you don't have the logic to actually handle a point accurately. I never said trading for DeRozan was the biggest of risks. I said TOR trading DeRozan, their best player, for 1 year rental was the biggest of risks because you are giving up your best player for hope that Leonard resigns with you or left with nothing going forward. Now instead of TOR being the best team in the East for the next few years, they will be retooling dramatically or tearing it down to rebuild.
The post I quoted quite aptly addressed your point. This is not the time to go into panic mode and just grab anyone who might be available because said player might make the team marginally better. Let that Westbrook fever pass.
