    This is not how Over/Under works.

    Demar starts.

    If Ross is better, Demar traded.

    If Ross lights it up, there's a part of me that now sees Casey using DeRozan at the 3. Fields becomes the primary backup wing at either position, and Kleiza sits on the bench growing his beard.

    I'd like Derozan at the 3 if he improves his D and rebounding drastically. Until then, I'd rather have Fields there

    i dunno, i think demar's real value to the team could be scorer off the bench. the more i think about it, ross' skill set is a better fit, thus should start. demar is a scorer, plain and simple. give him the green light to do so and i think he'll be more comfortable/effective.

    I remember when Ed Davis was drafted that a lot of people thought he would eventually take over the PF spot. Let's see Ross play 82 games in the NBA and then we'll revisit this...

    That takes the fun out of pointless banter.

    Ross and DeMar would be a nice combo at the wings. Super athletic in the open court with Lowry pushing the ball. Sort of how the DeMar and Weems combo was "supposed" to be. Fields off the bench would make sense, but that contract just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I think you have to start him at SF because that contract like Amir's is going to be hard to move. If only DeMar could shoot and had better handles...he and Ross wold be unstopable in the open court.

    Here's to hoping he's made some strides in the off season!

    Fields coming off the bench could still net him 25-30 mpg.

    But I agree that his contract is ugly....

    You guys are desperate.

    Wait till Ross actually does something in the NBA. He has the right mechanics to be successful but I haven't seen anything special from him to suggest he will do any better than Demar.

    Do you think Ross can manage a reverse dunk against T.Allen?

    In Ross' wildest dreams he won't be as good as McGrady.

    Derozan starts with Fields, Ross is J.R. Smith he will come off the bench until he proves he can dribble drive on ISO plays.

    But DeMar hasn't proven he can do that consistently yet either. I think you are right that Fields and DD will start, but the question is how long can DD hold onto that spot? Ross has way more tools in the bag than DD, and DeMar unless he's completely changed his game around to be a defender can't defend SF's. He's the odd man out imo.
