    I think the jury is still out on Ross at the NBA level. Hopefully, he carries over his strengths over from college.
    Oh you think the jury is still out on a player who has never ever played a single game at the NBA level?

    Let's see if Ross is even good enough to knock Demar out of the 2 (not that hard of a task) but if we put demar on 3s, we better hope it's not a scorer or someone that can bang in the paint or else they'll have a monster night.

    Demar is barely a decent SG & struggles defending 2's aswell, the problem is hed be an even worse SF for the same reasons, then add in the fact hed get punked on a nightly basis by guys who out muscle him

    DeMar doesn't rebound well because he doesn't like contact. At SF he has to do more than hold his own. he would have to hold his own as well as help out with Bargnani's man. He's not my first option at SF and I think the SF position would have to be addressed via free agency or trade.

    Why are people calling Demar a barely decent shooting guard? Goodness, this fan base is the model of underrate and overrate.

    Demar is a solid shooting guard only going to get better. He's got solid numbers for a player who was drafted so raw and drafted as a project. Let him develop, one good off-season with Casey should really bump things up for him, especially being part of USA's Select roster.

    BC: "I don't know if you've seen Demar lately, he's either wearing tighter shirts, or he's gotten bigger."
    DC: "Demar kind of looks like a power forward now."

    Hmmm. Tougher to find. The press conference of the introduction of Acy and Ross is where Casey makes his quote on Demar.

    http://www.nba.com/raptors/video/originals/index.html

    I can't find the BC one, but I watched it on NBATV Canada. He was addressing to the media post-draft about the picks, and someone asked about the complimentary of Demar and Terrence playing together. BC discussed the idea of Demar playing the 3, and mentioned Demar has bulked up. Sorry, can't find the link to the media address of BC, but I swear none is false.

    I do remember the quote about Demar looking like a power forward, it sure did stick out to me. Maybe having Demar guarding the 3 spot may be a good thing, sure he may get posted up by the "bigger" 3's in teh league, but he wont be chasing around the D-Wades, Mota Ellis', Kobes, and the Eric Gordons, of the league either.

    Word is that they may go after DHoward because JSmith and him are good friends and they have pieces:

    Howard has said in the past he is unwilling to go to Atlanta despite it being his hometown and Smith was also there at the time as well.

    100% agree.

    With DeRozan in the starting lineup I question it but if you put a shooter (like Danny Green) at SG, suddenly that line up is very dangerous.

    In the trade with the Nets they are receving Morrow, Brooks, and Stevenson (S&T). I don't think they need (or want) another SG.

    yeah, they kept Brooks.

    Demar Derozan can play the 3 as well as he plays the 2. The only threes he will have trouble against is Durant, James, and Carmelo Anthony. The reality is no one in the league can cover them so it doesn't even matter who we put on them.

    On offense he will have an easier time scoring against 3s and slashing to the rim I am looking forward to seeing him and Ross on the floor at the same time and getting alley oops from Steve Nash.

    Pierce, Wallace, Marion, Josh S., Odom, Iguodala, Battier are pretty tough covers too as well as defenders.
