Ideally, if we can get Derozan and trade for Dejuan Blair that would be the ideal situation in my eyes.
From the Chad Ford chat yesterday, Demar Derozan scored the third highest in vertical leap at the draft combine at 38.5 inches. However, Demar Derozan scored very poorly at speed & agility (lateral quickness). The guy had a mid randge game, but he can't dribble, and the poor scores in speed & lateral quickness questions his ability to become a quality defender.

Derozan was bottom five in agility:

He was in the bottom 14 of all the draft particapants in the sprint. Guys like Jordan Hill and Tyler Hansborough beat him in the sprint. Poor results for a guy many fans want as the future Raptor wingplayer :

This guy may become the next Joey Graham.
