As for DD, if you can convince a team to trade a great SF for a 4th year player who still doesn't know how to dribble, shoot or play defense, you don't walk, you run to sign off on that.
PG: Kyle Lowry, Jose Calderon, John Lucas III
SG: Demar Derozan, Terrence Ross
SF: Landry Fields, Linas Kleiza, Alan Anderson
PF: Andrea Bargnani, Ed Davis, Amir Johnson, Quincy Acy
C: Jonas Valanciunas, Aaron Gray, *Jamaal Magloire*?
That 4 spot looks overly congested to me. Moving Ed/Amir, or even both for a better 4 would be nice to end off the off-season. I also do hope that Jose Calderon changes his mind and stays in Toronto, and even signs an extension for less money, he's a fan favourite here, and a true professional.
Linas is making a case for quite a few minutes this year.
Assuming JV & Ross can learn fairly quickly and ED continues to improve & mature, I can see a lineup of Lowry, Ross, Fields, ED & JV being very potent on the defensive end at some point this season.
Raptors seem to have a deep lineup of somewhat talented players. If they come together and compete as a team I can see them playing on a level above that of their talent.
Start of year.
C: Gray(for a few games til JV gets it)
Sixth Man: Ross
End of year, and what I hope for
SF: DeRozan (I hope he's bulked and beefed up)
Sixth Man: Ross and Fredette
Sigh, pipe dreams
