The good news is that the Raps wouldn't need to renounce DeRozan until Durant is ready to sign on the dotted line. You don't need to renounce players to negotiate with free agents.
Ideally, in that situation, you look to S&T DeRozan to bring in another asset while helping to facilitate a move that DeRozan is happy with. If you can't have your cake and eat it to, you thank him and wish him well.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
So are you tryin' to say we can keep DeMar and Durant both
please don't tell me DeMar has to leave, it would tear my heart into pieces, can't bear to see the kid go......just can't.

What they got to say now? Nothing they can say now. Mobbin' on the low. Winnin' on the lowThe city embraced me, made me feel at home. The only difference [between Compton and Toronto] for me is the cold. -DeMarNo Where Near the South Side #WeTheNorth
They wouldn't have to renounce anything, Even if Derozan is deserving of a max contract, his cap hold is only 130% of his 9.5 mil, with Valanciunas & Ross still on rookie scale, and Lowry at 10 mil (guess) still plenty of room for a max contract. And i doubt OKC turns down a Draft pick in S&T, really nothing to worry about at all.

I don't think it matters that much that they lose sometimes to bad teams. Bad teams beat good teams all the time . It's the overall wins and losses that matter, and the playoffs of course

Raps strength of schedule up until this point has been .502
Bulls strength of schedule up until this point has been .484
Clippers (highest in top 15): .519
We haven't benefited from being in the EC yet. Our schedule is about to get real soft though.
DeRozan is locked u for the next little while you really think Raps would go on a serious downturn to make him opt out and not think about staying? thats the only real reason I see him leaving if the Raps go into another tail spin of bad decisions under Ujiri etc.
