Derozan's future in Toronto
 
Quote:

Casey still thinks DeRozan can be one of the team’s dynamic crunch-time scorers in years to come: “That’s who we want it to be. That’s who we want to be that guy.”

And for DeRozan’s part, he wants to be in Toronto.

“Things will definitely be fun because it’s a chance to give the city something that they want and something that I want — that’s making the playoffs,” DeRozan said when asked about the possibility of being part of an exciting, young team. “We’re definitely going to make a run next year.”

Despite the possible presence of two intriguing young shooting guards in the draft — Florida’s Brad Beal and Connecticut’s Jeremy Lamb — DeRozan figures to be a part of that team, one that tries to turn promise into substance.

But usually by your third or fourth year, you are who you are as an NBA player. The Raptors will have to hope that DeRozan’s spurt indicates an incline this time around, instead of a plateau.

He needs to improve his ball-handling. His ball-handling is so poor it stops him from progressing in other parts of his game.

demar as a small forward might be the right answer. it might make us a wee bit undersize, but it would definitely improve our level of talent across the board.

A 6'7 sf isnt undersized. He just needs to get stronger.

without considering how thin his frame is, how is that naturally possible for anyone to do over a few months? 225 would be more than ideal.

He's been coming along offensively last 10-20 games finally. Like what I see from him on that end. Good FG percentage.

Dario 04-05-2012 12:57 AM

Why does Derozan/Bayless/Bargnani only play good on useless games that we should be tanking for? meh
