Exclamation DeRozan refuses to work out with Toronto

Quote:
the Raptors have had only had four group workouts in town, with the next one not coming until Tuesday. It seems increasingly unlikely that Southern California swingman DeMar DeRozan will be in that group, although it is possible that he could come to the city just not to hit the floor.

It sounds as if the Raptors would like to work him out, but the freshman is just not obliging. Toronto might have to do with an in-depth conversation.

"That's part of the draft procedure," Kelly said of Toronto's inability to get DeRozan in sneakers at the Air Canada Centre. "We don't actually control it. We deal with what we have."

Definitely more to do with the fact that his agent and he think he'll be chosen before us rather than straight up not wanting to play here.

Maybe he wants them to love him for who he is on the inside, not the outside? Or maybe he's indirectly saying in a politically correct way that he does not want to play in Toronto?

We had DeMar DeRozan going to Toronto with the ninth pick in our latest mock draft.

Don't expect him to slip past there. League sources say the Raptors have let DeRozan know that if he's there at nine they're taking him.
From Espn last week....Hmmmmmm....

Guaranteeing without a workout.

either he doesn't want to come here
or
him and his agent think he will be drafted way before the ninth pick and that working out for the ninth pick would lower his draft value, and he only wants to work out for like the top 5 or so pick teams because maybe the more workouts he does the more his flaws may be exposed and it too will drop his draft value
we should just draft him if he's there at nine and see what happens, hahaha

Talked with Ryan McNeill from Hoops Addict.com on who WAS there. Draft Jonny Flynn he wants to be here. But anyway here is a link to my interview with Ryan that includes link to interviews and scrums from Hoops Addict.

He has something to hide. He refuses competitive workouts or workouts depending on the players participating. I don't think he doesn't want to be drafted by the Raptors, why bother show up if he doesn't want to play for Toronto. He has flaws in his game he doesn't want exposed.

as long as there is his "potential" of being a star, he'll be taken high
but if he consistently shows that he's not worth taking the risk with a high lotto pick, he'll drop and sow will his $$$
so his workouts are limited

I don't think DeRozan has beef specifically with Toronto like Francis did Vancouver, but DeRozan has already received a guarantee he'll be picked by the Raptors if he's still there at nine and he doesn't even think he'll be there then anyway. I see the logic in not wanting to work out for a team who's already "guaranteed" you a spot when there are other teams that still haven't gotten a look at you.

You guys are nuts!

Why would I workout for a team that has already guaranteed me that they will take me?

I have nothing to gain and everything to lose.

When you put that it makes sense, but what if he's not as good as the Raptors predict.
Shouldn't they try him out anyways?

Without a workout, that makes no sense.Plus their is also been rumours that they have guaranteed Evans too. If you ask me this guarantee talk is all speculation.
