But I do admit, he'd benefit from a change of scenery and be placed within a system that hides alot of his weaknesses and plays to his strengths. He's asked to do too much on this team and he's just not good enough to do it.
^Agreed.

Still, the solution for him isn't for us to just dump him for a shitty player (ie. Jeff Green). If we can't trade him for equal value, we should definitely hold on to him. The Raptors themselves should be a change of scenery next year, especially if we get a top 2 pick. We have the offseason to make changes, possibly bring in a true 5, and draft someone like Irving or Williams, to go along with a more mature Ed Davis (Paul Millsap pt. 2?) and DeMar DeRozan next season.
