Oh I hear you. But given all this, don't you think that bringing in Derozan would be a great pick up for the Lakers? He's a hometown hero out there, and given his relationship with Kobe, he will have an opportunity to learn from and play aside Kobe until he finally ends up replacing him as SG in the starting lineup.
I can assure you my friend, as a Laker fan and someone who has lived in LA for few years and listens to ESPN710 LA everyday, DD is not a hometown hero there !!! Lakers have no interest to drop 10 million a year on DD. Listen to ESPN710 LA ( broadcast from internet for free) and realize that Lakers have their eyes on bigger prices like Westbrooks, Love and Druant.
