DeRozan, poll

Moderators: Kilroy, Danny Darko, TyCobb

A or B?

Poll ended at Mon Nov 16, 2020 2:11 am

We should pursue a third star, like CP3, RW, dMdR. DeRozan is the perfect fit next to LBJ and AD.

Rest of team is our third star. Lock up some solid role players, no need for a third big contract.

We also have to consider the fact that if one of our guys get injured badly then the season is over. How many times during the season when AD went down have we said the season is over? That third star will give you assurance that the season will go on while the other star recovers.

How about instead picking up Josh Jackson in FA, and trading for Svi or Bertans?

If rest of team is the third star by committee, I don’t see a problem during reg season.

Now that we got a scoring guard in shroder hopefully the derozan talks die off and we head into wing defenders.

No to derozan. Because I haven't seen anything from him up to this point. Nuttin in Toronto. Nuttin in San Antonio.
And I can see it now, Bron drives the lane, kicks it to derozan, derozan looks and pump fakes WIDE Open with nobody guarding him. And then he drives into the lane with everybody there packin the paint. Then Bron yellin, SHOOT THE DAMN BALL!

For once, I’m with the majority. :-)

DeRozan
I don’t see the fit with dMdR, offense nor defense.

C Paul
If CP3 pulls a $44M hammy, no depth available

Westbrook
If anyone thinks Westbrook will be happy in a third option catch and shoot role I have news.

Rest of team
Rest of team as our third option is perfect if you ask me. Kuzma on some nights, Schroeder on other nights, Caruso, Howard, THT etc.

There's rumblings of a KCP sign and trade for DeMar. Could be just speculation, but it's interesting.

Pop wants to steal Kuz before he has a big year.

Don’t let Pop trick you into it, Rob! We don’t need DeRozan. We already have him in KCP.

KCP + Kuz for Derozan would be fine tbh. still keeps most of the core together and we have our MLE and Bi annual exemption to go after talent that could replace them.

I honestly don’t even know if I’d do DeRozan straight up for KCP, who knows his role. I doubt DeRozan will be as scrappy.

He can get to the rim and be a slasher, that's what we need badly as well.

I think Pelinka is going to try without giving up a huge amount of assets.

We have slashers in LBJ, Kuz, THT, KCP, AD, Schroeder.

We need defense and 3PT shooting. DeRozan is great at neither.
