We really need to calm down about this draft a little bit.



But really, there are people who wouldn't give up DeMar and two picks for a top 5 pick? That means you're guaranteed one of Parker, Wiggins, Randle, Embiid, or Exum. I get that Demar is a reliable scorer and likes Toronto, but business is business, and when you get a player who can be the face of your franchise for 10 years, in exchange for a borderline all star and some picks that'll likely end up in the 20s, you take it and run.

But none of that matters because no sane GM will trade a top 5 pick for a package with Demar as the best asset.
