    The five best players is not always the best lineup.
    As an example, Harden coming off the bench worked pretty well. Derozan coming off the bench might be awesome if the Raos had a decent PG as a backup.

    Definitely agree. DeRozan as 6th man on this team would be interesting. Problem of course is filling the holes in other areas with limited assets and exceptions.

    The five best players is not always the best lineup.
    I'm well aware of that but this whole line of thinking feels like the carriage is in front of the horse to me. Also, by me saying that they should replace Demar with a better talent if they make a trade does not preclude the idea of Fields starting. I really like Demar as a player, but I also realize that the Raptors suck. If trading him would have a significantly positive impact on the team, I'm all for it. If moving him to the bench benefits the team I'm for that too. However, I feel like no one knows what version of Landry Fields is playing for the Raptors. And Ross is at least a year from being even in this debate.

    Also, Demar played a lot more with AB than Fields did. He also played during the worst stretch of the season while Fields was injured. Simply using these two stats in a vacuum does not tell the whole story. I'm not saying that you're wrong but I would need something significantly more in depth than that (using situational data, video based analytical data, etc) to come to any conclusion.

    For instance, for all of his poor individual stats the defensive ranking of the starting lineup was extremely high. That could be for a number of reasons. One could argue that it proves that the wing spots work well together guarding players. But again, that stat doesn't tell the whole story. I want to know the whole story. To me that includes finding out what a healthy Landry Fields looks like on the court.

    Raptors should not trade Demar and start Landry because "theNBAGeek.com and net OffRtg/DefRtg through stats.nba.com" say it's a good idea. Point finale. I just find that ridiculous. Lets see how Landry does next season before this is even brought up again.
