How many of you would take this deal?
How many of you would take this deal?
I would not. Unless they give us a load of picks, and IF at the deadline Kleiza is playing really, really, REALLY badly then I would add in him and they would give us whatever expiring they have. But I would almost certainly not do it anyways. DD is our future. They are just getting along so well. Weems, DeRozan, Calderon, Johnson, Davis, Kleiza and Bargnani are a core I want in TO for the long term.
I didn't actually read the post (since you're on my ignore list), but from the threads you seem to be starting your desire to criticize and trade DeRozan away is bordering on hypocritical. Haven't you constantly blasted others as being Raptor haters for doing the same thing to Bargnani? Does that make you a Raptor hater? By your definition it does. It's especially hypocritical considering that DeRozan is having a better 2nd season than Bargnani did.
No, I don't think I'd do that trade, for a couple of reasons:
1. Robin Lopez has back issues, and we know that back issues can be reaccuring (hello Hakeem!), so I say no, based on health.
2. I think if we're gonna replace bargs with a new center, it has to be a real impact 5, cause that means that we're moving bargs to the 4, where we now actually have some depth.
3. I think DD is virtually untradeable right now (with exceptions of course), as we still haven't seen exactly what his ceiling is.
would totally do it..... if they toss in nash and few picks, and take someone like wright, or someone else stuck on our bench......
1 for 1? Not a chance.
If they included Nash, then yes.
As a matter of fact DeRozan has Bargnani to thank for his starting role the way I see it, because B.C. saw how much Mitchell screwed Bargnani up, and demanded DeMar start and get minutes to develop regardless of his play and that has held true to this day or he would not be starting.DeRozan while a talented promising and developing athlete is not currently the best SG on the team, and based purely on that would be relegated to 5 or 6 minutes per game behind Weems and Barbosa.
I would do it but there's no way the Suns do this and go even smaller.
Eh follow my TWITTER!
And the main reason Bargnani was yanked out of the starting lineup and his minutes reduced was because he wasn't performing and doing the things asked of him.
Also, I'm not the one who said that you're a Raptor hater if you criticize a Raptor player, and then did it himself.
i think your grasping at straws bud! RL has played a combined 120 games over a span of 5 season so far........i dont think id even part with a 2nd rounder for him at this point.......
OK, this is ridiculous.
First off, how fast would Phoenix hang up the phone on Toronto if they offered that for Lopez or Nash? 1.3 seconds? 0.9? Bigs take a while to develop (think Roy Hibbert or even Tyson Chandler) and Nash is the face of the franchise. If they traded DD for Nash, Phoenix fans would riot harder than fans of Arrested Development demanding their money back from Jason Bateman after watching "The Switch".
Besides, if Toronto does do a deal, they need a dominant wing who can create their own shot. I know in the other thread, I suggested Arenas and that got a bit of a thumbs down, because as you can see by guys like Ron Artest, Rasheed Wallace, Nate Robinson and Steven Jackson, you can't win with guys that have a bad attitude oh wait you can!
I wouldn't mind seeing DeRosan coming off the bench playing against second stringers to see if he can develope his game more. Right now he is really struggling with his game and shot. Now is the time to bring him off the bench and start Barbosa. He has lost some of his confidence; let him play against second stringers and bring that confidence back and maybe back into starting!

Quote from well known personality who led their high school team to a state championship.“As a captain, I played furiously. I drew a lot of fouls, but I brought everything I had to every practice and to every game. I left everything on the court because I simply wanted the team to win”
Bizarre thread. Colangelo has shown nothing but patience with his top draft picks. He gives them lots of time to develop. During 3 years of Bargnani is a bust, get him the hell out of town hysteria, Colangelo stuck by his draft pick and said give him time to develop and he'll be very good. He will give DD the same latitude. DD fits into his new strategy to develop young talent going forward. If I were setting the odds in Vegas it would be something like 1000:1 against DD being traded anytime soon.
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
how about bargnani for a 1KG bag of peanuts??
