I like Derozan and think he'll have a good NBA career, but any good offer has to be considered unless you believe that Demar will be a superstar which i doubt. And if you think that considering a good offer to improve the team long term makes me a hater, then i'm a hater.
Yeah you're right, you are a hater. You should have more respect for DeRozan because chances are he will be here for a long time. He doesn't have a 3 point shot because thats not what he does, if he doesn't turn into Ray Allen then so be it. Vince Carter never had a 3 point shot earlier in his career but he worked on it. You aren't born with a good 3 point shot, you have to work for it. Considering DeRozan is a gym rat he will most likely develop one. Maybe not an incredible one like Ray Allen, but definitely a respectable one.
