Just wanted to say this, people lots of people don't like DeRozan trade talks in many of our threads here on RR...
Look, I'm one of the biggest DeRozan supporters if not the biggest. But, trade speculation isn't unavoidable, considering how high his trade value is and the uncertainty of Masai Ujiri's building plan (we all have an idea though - build through the low end of the draft i.e. pick #15 to lower).
I will just give my opinion here:
Keep DeRozan, he's an all-star calibre player, who continues to improve many aspects of his game each and every season, no matter how marginal certain improvements are; improving is still progress, and some of us may be a little too stretchy when talking about improvement/progress.
Lowry/DeRozan/Ross/Amir/JV is a starting lineup for possibly, years. Sustainability is huge in this league, and internal improvement has never been a bad thins; look at teams like the Pacers and the Thunder. Now I know people will say" blah, blah, the Thunder and Pacers have big time talent." Well, obviously, because they improved. Not sure anyone could have said George or Hibbert, hell for sure Stephenson, that these guys were going to be the players they are now..
Anyways, keep DeMar, Lowry is my point guard for a reasonable contract, and continue to improve internally along with adding in the right mix of veterans, and continuing to stockpile young players/assets in the draft.
Rudy may be killing it, but he's also led the Kings to the bottom of the Western Conference. They are currently in LAST... so there's that.
