I've wanted this guy since before the draft...he is gonna be Rondo with a jump shot.
Yeah, he is going to be a nice player.
A few people around here were high on him last year around the draft.
ATL has a good problem with him and Teague - especially considering Teague is on a reasonable contract.

I would trade derozan for this kid in a heartbeat.
We could've had him. Thanks a lot Bryan Colangelo

Masai: Yes sir, anonymous forum trade requests matter to me so much.
You'd trade DD for Schroeder then 3 years down the line when Schroeder isn't putting up superstar numbers you'd trade him again.
I swear if RR forum members ran the team, we'd make a trade every single day of the season, likely losing 100% of them.
thank god you're not our GM.. we d be forever running on this mediocrity treadmill without taking any calculated risks
in my opinion, Schroeder has serious potential WITH SKILLS and DD's potential is measured with the basis of his athletic ability to play basketball and defend(<-- common, we have to agree on his D). DD is a very good player already and thats about it.. he is not gonna be an IMPACT player... id love to have DD in my team but if an opportunity presents itself to acquire a player of Scrroeder's caliber and a first round pick (not necessarily 2014) And Korver (a player contenders fight for around trade deadline) i would take it for the team's LONGTERM purpose. we are not gonna shine in the playoffs with Demar's usage.
Every RR thread:
1- "My trade idea is awesome."
2 - "My trade idea is better than your trade idea"
1 - "That trade idea sucks!"
2- "You suck!"

Consider that a 1:09 minute video of any player's best plays will look like someone you want on your team.
Now look at his stats this year and see a guy who does everything in the range of extremely poorly to below average. (Asst are right about average, so that is ok, I guess).
Not to say that he couldn't be on his way to being great, but that for now, in less than 150 mp, he is pretty far down on the talent curve.
Really tho there isn't too much difference between what Schroeder is doing now vs Rondo's first season...With the way DD is playing and the way that ATL's roster is made up I don't think the trade would be the best option for either team. BUT, I do think that Schroeder is a decent gamble to take, if only we had a developmental staff that could work with our young guys..
The way DeRozan is playing right now, I think he's worth more than a "gamble" on an unproven backup PG.

At 20 y/o, Rondo was a below average shooter as a rookie, but not nearly as poor as DS. Plus Rondo put up great rebounding numbers, and above average defensive stats, while limiting turnovers to an average amount. So really, there is a big difference between what DS is doing now, and where Rondo started off.
A better comparison (for now) would be Jonny Flynn's last season in the league. That's what you're looking at currently.
