Here are 7 ideas: Which one would you pick?
derozan for lakers' nash
Nash's value is low. Lakers won't make the postseason (i think). Nash is not getting any younger and strongly wanted to play for his home country. Valanciounas & Ross' development would improve with Kid Canada.
derozan for kings' sign+trade tyreke evans
Evans is a smarter player with a better shot. Derozan is a more athletic player that attacks. Evans can play some point guard for the team and improve our guard rotation.
derozan+lowry for celtics' rondo
Rondo's passing is second to none in this league currently. Again, he would make this club a lot better. Boston would improve its depth significantly with Derozan & Lowry.
derozan for rockets' linsanity
Harden and Lin are both point guards. They each play better with the ball. Derozan fits the rockets better because he plays the traditional 2. Lin would be an instant fan favorite in Toronto. He would also improve our point guard position. Lin is a smart player, racks up good steal numbers. Don't really like that 2014-2015 salary ... but its doable.
derozan for pacers' george hill
I'll admit that Hill would fit better with the raptors. Not sure why the pacers would do it, other than the increased athleticism and getting a bigger guard.
derozan+johnson for wolves' kevin love
Call it a dream, but I can see it being possible. Some say Andrea is the perfect fit for Jonas ... I think Kevin Love would be the perfect fit for Jonas. We give a lot in Johnson and Derozan, but Kevin Love's shooting prowness plus rebounding are hard to find in this league.
derozan for suns' gortat+marshall
A bit of a stretch, but put it out there anyway. We have some potential upside in Marshall, and a good rebounder in the polish hammer. It would probably involve subsequent trades of Bargnani and/or Johnson.
