    WTF is Colangelo thinking. Derozan is a below average starting sg. I'd almost rather have Anderson starting at the 2, he can defend, shoot, and rebound
    Colangelo is on some Halloween crack cocaine. Can't wait to see the interviews about the signing, it'll be hilarious.

    I know right! He can't say the team will be better with Derozan, and he can't say they still have as much flexibility as they could have had. Other GM's must be lovin this right now.. this is ridiculous

    Do the Raptors pay players to help them lose games? It almost seems like that's the logic behind these types of moves.

    Better put the dunce cap on Colangelo head because Steve Nash was his first choice, my gawed can you imagine Casey puting Calderon and Nash at the same time?! any NBA starting guard would carve those two defence like a turkey. That Landry Fields looks like a worse signing then I could have thought in game number 1.
    Landry wasn't signed for scoring per se. He's a better defender / rebounder than DD. I don't get this signing however. As for Drummond, he's a project bro.

    Demar's agent caught Colangelo at the right time to ask for the money, I have seen it all before somewhere...

    If DeRozan continues to play like he did tonight, he'll be worth every penny! His jumper was on point, he defence was lock down, and he made a living at the FT line!!! Keep doing what you do, DeRo! Prove those haters wrong!

    So when can a trade happen with DeMar now? Come January we could package DeMar with Calderon and get a $20M contract.

    Is Dwight available? How about Carmelo? Or Nowitzki?

    Colangelo and his contracts.. if you are going to offer $9M+ a year, why not wait for another team to make an offer, than match? This is ridiculous! Nobody is going to be paying more than $9.5M a year for DeMar, even if SG's are a short supply in the league.

    If it wasn't for the 0-0 at the free throw line I never would have caught the sarcasm. My blood pressure was rising as I thought of missed layups, missed jumpers, blown rotations, and horrible defense on base line screens.

    most NBA players at the 2 or 3 are better defenders and rebounders then DD so what's your point?!

    Drummond is a project yes but so is Ross and right now I rather take the rookie who is build like a tank then the twinner rookie who can't drive to the basket or aim at the net.

    The amount of calls he didn't get from the refs, and should have, was ridiculous tonight. I'm not worried.

    They can keep him if someone offers Demar more then 7 million dollars a season. For 2-3 million dollars you can find this player in europe that can do what DD can do and has a jump shot... I can't remember his name....Sonny something...

    If Landry starts sticking his jumpers again(especially the 3), he'd be worth the $$ in my opinion because of his defense, rebounding and bball IQ. But so far he looks useless

    I dunno. His game is so predictable driving right into defenders. Refs haven't been bailing him out for years.

    He is never going to get a call until he starts taking shots that have a chance to go in or he starts trying to dunk EVERYTHING.

    Exactly. defenders only have to put their hands up and contest because Demar isn't a great finisher. He's too one-dimensional

    Are we overpaying him? Yea probably a little, but we have no choice if we want to keep him.
    I don't want to keep him at 10 mil per season. The only statistical category where he's above average is minutes played. The main pro-DeMar argument seems to be 'he can score'. The percentage of NBA players who can manage to score point totals in the mid teens if you lock them in to starter minutes and a green light is higher than you think. I'm sure Ed Davis could muster up 13-14 if we ran him out there that much and fed him the rock 12+ times a game.

    And what theoretical teams were out there just salivating to overpay a guy who has never posted a league average PER? And if they're out there then they're welcome to it. But why not make him prove it this year. It's not like we couldn't match. There was no pressure to make this extension happen now. Especially for a guy who hasn't proven he's worth it, at all. He is literally the exact reason for the entire restricted free agency process whereby you can let the market set the price. This decision is stupid and the more I think about it the stupider I think it is.

    I've never been a 'fire BC' person, but anyone who keeps talking about 'flexibility' should look around for open containers of industrial solvents, because paying 17 million a year for the Fields/DeRozan combo (both of whom lost 4th quarter time tonight to a 2 pg lineup and Allan Anderson) is exactly how you kill your cap flexibility.

    By the way, I'm super excited for the 12 million per year we're inevitably giving Davis as soon as he's eligible.
