I am not to crazy about giving up Demar.. and Bledsoe nice, but needs to work on his jumper

Ross has more natural talent then Demar, but it's his mental toughness I am worried about..

Demar would flourish playing for Rivers.
Bledsoe can defend, explode past defenders in both transition and half court, finish above the rim and through contact, and hit the open jumper - just under 40% from three last year. Small sample, but In contrast to DD, Bledsoe made 3 less 3's, but attempted 42 less as well. He also blocked 55 shots last year - more than twice as much as DD. while he's doesn't possess great vision, his shortcomings for a PG, IMO, are far less worrisome than Derozan's for a SG. I do agree that Demar would benefit playing under a great coach though, and alongside CP3, and in his hometown. Here's hoping it becomes a reality.

I would be happy for DD too, I know he loves toronto, but being in LA would be awesome for him, hes a good kid too, its just if bledsoe likes TO...

I'm not sold Bledsoe can be a starter, too small for a sg and not enough pg skills. He's a heck of a player though. Would be good if we tank next season.

I think bledsoe fits his role so well in LA, but your right milk, he might be able to handle the minutes physically, but I don't think his productivity averaging 30-40 minutes a game will be on par, which is kinda obvious, I wouldnt say drastically, but not as good

That's because Demar is one of the best young players in the game. Doc Rivers knows his shit.

This is a trade that makes sense for both teams but hard to give up a player like DD. Do you believe he can improve or what we see now, is where he will most likely end up?

Getting EB, adds a very good talent, and opens playing time for Ross.
LAC don't EB with CP and others. Adding DD gives them a nice talent.

I would think hard about the deal. I like EB, I think he is very good talent. Also a fan of DD though, would hate to lose him and then him blow up and figure it out.

stupid. if that was all he could do he wouldn't be averaging 18 ppg

if we make a bled for DD straight swap we lose, big, and DD becomes huge in 2 years or so, and MU gets fired

He's one of the best SGs in a time where good SGs are harder to come by than good PGs.

Wrong on both counts imo. Not to say i'm a huge Derozan fan but he's a decent player and his contract is equally decent. I do think we should trade him but i'd rather not do it for Bledsoe. But if we can trade for Bledsoe and acquire or sign a SG that can shoot i'm all for it.

His contract is huge... 10m annually for Corey Maggette is not what we want. Are people writing off Ross already?

With Bledsoe we can move Lowry for another big asset, lose a ton more games this year, and save a lot of cash instead of catching the 8th seed. It's wonderful.
