But overall, I don't buy his value is all that high. I doubt any GM would fall for Devlin favourites such as "best scorer in the league since yesterday at 8:54pm". Demar is a pretty known quantity and breakout years are rare for players with 6 years of experience. If he keeps it up for a full season, may change the conversation. But even then, what can we realistically expect? What would you trade for say klay thompson? Not JV and definitely not your first round pick this draft. And I don't think demar is even close to thompson in value right now.
Dude is 24 and got better each year since he was drafted and hasn't reached his ceiling. Yeah, sure, let's trade him now and keep the treadmill going so we could finish 9th again, maybe even 10th.
