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.

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.
