    Default Derozan wants to stay a Raptor.

    @stackmack: 1/2 @DeMar_DeRozan on staying in Toronto: “Yeah. At the end of the day, this is where I got drafted, this is definitely where I want to be…
    @stackmack: 2/2 @DeMar_DeRozan continued…I just want to bring good things to the city and be a part of it for years to come. We’ll see what happens.”

    Hmm... Can't decide if this is a good thing or bad thing.

    Feels like a pretty standard line to say in his position. Last year of rookie contract and looking for a big pay day. he needs to show loyalty to this team, portray characteristics and an image that any other team would want.

    I dont want him to stay. even for just the min. Unless he can learn to dribble and pass hes just a black hole that the team can use without.

    Him saying it is better than not saying it.

    But any player with a brain is always going to say he wants to stay where he is. Nothing to gain and everything to lose otherwise.

    I do think he is sincere though, fwiw.

    At the end of the day, both he and the Raptors are going to do what is in the best interests of themselves. Hopefully something works out that is mutually beneficial for both.

    I think he's sincere too, but like Matt said, he'd be doing himself a disservice if he didn't say so.

    I like the kid, and his work ethic. But based purely on his on-court performance, he's easily replaceable. His fundamental basketball skills (dribbling, passing, shooting, defence) are growing far too slowly. Yes, he's only 23, but some of these skills should've been gained in high school.

    If you were the GM, how much would you be willing to offer Mr. Derozan? Would you give him the same money as Bargnani 5 years $50 mil? That would probably be the max I'd give him.

    I would only offer DeRozan something in the $5-7M range, but I'm guessing he'
