View Full Version : Stephen A: DeMar DeRozan will be in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform next season

You can have em LA


DeMar DeRozan and the Toronto Raptors currently lead their Eastern Conference semifinals series with the Miami Heat entering Friday night’s Game 6, but rumors already are churning about the star guard’s future. ESPN “First Take” analyst Stephen A. Smith talked about one potential free-agent destination for DeRozan this summer during Tuesday’s show. And it’s not surprising. “He’s made it very, very clear that he wants to be in L.A.,” Smith said, via Lakers Nation. “He has family out there. He’s from out there. He wants to be in L.A. He wants to wear the purple and gold, and if there’s a way for it to happen, again he’s (unrestricted), if there’s a way for it to happen, DeMar DeRozan will be in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform next season.” L.A. is a mess right now. Kobe Bryant has retired, ushering in a new Lakers era that currently lacks a superstar talent or any young players with franchise cornerstone-type potential. The Lakers also don’t have a head coach after firing the historically bad Byron Scott last month. There are better situations for DeRozan if he becomes an unrestricted free agent. One of them is Toronto, but if he wants to leave Canada, he’ll surely have plenty of options where he can win and make a ton of money.

DeRozan should stay in Toronto where he's doing well and has a chance to make the playoffs

Lakers don't need an aging volume shooter to stunt the young guns

(null)If Dee brings his talents to the Lake Show, that means Clarkson would be let go and I would take Clarkson over Dee all day long if I was the Lakers GM.

Clarkson can shoot the ball as sweet like Klay with range but more on the streaky side than clutch like Kay. We know Dee is not clutch in the postseason while Clarkson is still unknown since his team hasn't gotten to the playoffs yet not because of him. If I given close to max like $$$ to one of those two, it be Clarkson! :clap:

I don't want any part of Derozan. Like you, I would rather the Lakers stick with a cheaper and better shooting option in Clarkson. Derozan's price tag and lack of shooting makes me uncomfortable.

Derozen is a huge upgrade over nick young. Add him and a couple of solid FAs and he can make the Lakers a respectable team again. I doubt they can get anyone better this off-season. Might as well add an all star, and make the Lakers a more attractive FA destination next year. They should still have max cap space in 2017, and it shouldn't be too hard to attract a legit star to pair next to him. He will get overpaid, but guess what? So will most FAs for the next couple of years. I don't think it would be a bad idea.

Why would I wish for Clarkson to be a 6th man? I would not waste a wish on that my friend... What vet like Iggy? What does this even mean? Is there a minimum age requirement? Clarkson IMO is a sixth man and will likely always be a sixth man (but could be a great one). At this moment Clarkson isn't very good. Demar is much better and its not close. We're talking about a clear top 5 SG vs. a top 15-20 SG.

I hate the amount or the term max, but if you think about it, his $26 million for year one will be $10 million less than a max contract will be the following year and going forward. Once the salary cap reaches up to around a hundred and eight million a Max contract will be around 36 million. I am fine if Derozan is making 10 million less than a real max player. He would hurt us for one year but we aren't winning anything anyway.

Clarkson would get moved to the bench and if someone signed him he will only be making 6 million next year, and 6 million the year after. He would be able to play both guard spots and get starter minutes.

Its actullay less than $6 million for the first two years. Its called the Gilbert Arenas early bird rights rule. Clarkson is going to be dirt cheap for the next two years but then his slary will baloon to $23 million for the 3rd and 4th years. No team can offer him a contract that starts above $5.6 million for next year and $5.9 the year after.

But keep in mind, the max term is in flux right now. Anyone who signed a "max" contract last summer will be a steal going forward. Same for this summer. A player signing the max will be considered a mid tier contract going forward. Derozan is a mid tier guy.

That's true....in 2 years, he be getting the max based on the future cap and with his ability to shoot almost anywhere with range, i would trade Barnes for him this off season as the Lakers will have the cap space to absorb the difference in a sign n trade so Clarkson can be the Dubs new SG while I move Klay to the small forward spot :nod:.

I think Luke has a fondness for Barnes and with 6 or so teams interested in him this offseason, the Lakers can finally lock up their future at the 3 spot.

I think so too. The only thing I can't wrap my head around is why he would choose the Lakers over a team that just got to the Eastern Conference Finals. I think this is just even a popping off at the mouth. Sure he's from here but he can come back home in the off-season. The only rational reason I could think of is if I was good enough to be a pro athlete,I would have always wanted to play for my hometown teams.

The interest to have DeRozan stay in Toronto is mutual between both DeRozan, and Ujiri (Raps GM). I just don't see how DeRozan walks - especially considering he's pegged as the franchise, actually likes it here, and has come a long way this season by making it to the ECF.

I don't hate on him, he's solid, just not a max guy. His numbers are not really a lofty goal for someone with Clarksons skill set, in fact they can get better because he has a 3 ball.

I've watched DD from high school on, he's good but I can't really call him a legit allstar. That was more a product of how watered down the east is, him and Lowry making the allstar team.

In the West they never get anywhere near a allstar game, neither are on Dames level and he didn't even make the cut.

DeMar is going to be one of those players who you will pay the max and then scratch your head and wonder why you did that a couple of years later. He doesn't have a winning mentality. I saw him smiling and laughing the entire time in the bench while they got smacked. Lowry tried to watch the WCF with Ty Lue? What the hell are these two thinking lol?

Change your mind yet? :)

I agree that it's a small sample size but 1 playoff game > 1 reg season game

Taking down this weak Cleveland team don't mean nothing. How many teams have completely destroyed this Cavs team in the past?

Where has he been the rest of the playoffs? 16 playoff games > 16 regular season games.

Derozan sucks, that'd be a bad move for LA to give him anything near the max.http://financeseeyou.com/red/images/54.gif

Isn't last season a past? It existed with the same lineup other than a new voice in Lou cause I doubt he is a puppet like Blatt was.

An injured then out Kyrie and no Love for most of the playoffs. No Frye, either. Yeah, same team.

Those are minor differences, they might have major implications on the court, but you still have largely the same roster, how is it not the same team? It's the same team missing a few key players due to injuries.

Just like how this years, and last years Rockets teams are basically the same. And how the Warriors haven't changed in like 4 years, we've changed a coach, and lost our main PF and upgraded internally, and have been replacing role players here and there.

Teams are made up of relationships between players, or dynamics. New players change the dynamics on the court, and even when they don't change players relationships shift and change over time - organically and sometimes strategically. The team is only ever the same when the players don't change and either does strategy, a pretty rare occurrence over multiple years. IMO.

Big deal, they won a single game...still have 0% chance of beating the Cavaliers.

You can't be serious.
