He may seem out of control but that's because he has to get to the rim on this team.... the rest of them don't. DeRozan should be working with Barbosa exclusively on ball handling drills. Dude is awesome. He gets a raw deal with some fans.
As for Davis for Portland's first? No. You don't trade him for a mid-first. I like the Batum idea or any young player like Paul George or something.
Jose could be a guy that we actually bring back after this deal for something like half his value. It's not a guarantee that we can actually spend all of our capspace on guys we need or want so his contract might not be as much of an anchor as it appears to be.
+1 Carp. Well said.
