Like who? I haven’t followed this that closely but DeRozan is a star with years left on his deal. I’d be happy if i were him joining an org like the spurs. Pop will get everything and more out of him. The guy can score at will.

The league has passed Pop by. Either that or it's because he doesn't have Duncan, Robinson, Parker and Ginobili in their primes anymore.

The Pistons could have given them Drummond, Jackson, Leuer and Griffin - then flipped Leonard to the Lakers to start the rebuild.

Start the rebuild? They've been trying to patch together a rebuild for a decade.

I'm thinking young guys under 25 and/or lottery picks. Spurs with Derozan are a fringe playoff team in the current west. Better for them to start rebuilding now, in my opinion.

It's far from a knee jerk reaction. The NBA is a players league. Pretty much always has been. The coaches get too much credit and too much blame.

Agree with this. I got really annoyed with the Brad Stevens slurping last playoffs. Good coach? Hell yeah, but it's the players that make him look good. Statistically Tye Lue is a much better coach with more hardware and finals appearances, why doesn't he receive the same level of praise?

Love when people bitch about players leaving teams and going wherever then Toronto trades away their face of the franchise in DeRozan for a year of Leonard. Cold blooded.

Because Ty Lue was more like LeBron's assistant than a real head coach.

Agree, and I think the role Brad Stevens would have in Cleveland coaching LeBron is about the same. It's a players league.

That would be an awesome venue to see an nba preseason game. Last time I remember two NBA teams meeting there was the Pistons vs Sonics and I believe that wast he game where Laimbeer got his face fucked up and had to wear the plastic mask for the season. Does anyone else recall this or is my memory off.

Id be interested in what the real trade is versus what his perceived value is by the twolves. I don't think he's as good as he or Minnesota thinks.

He’s a great two way player in my opinion. With that being said, doesn’t he only have a year left on his deal?

Trade the rest of the team and keep him. He wants to be traded because his teammates don't work hard or care about winning.

Hilarious that he came in, took the GPA team and whooped the starters.

But he wants to be traded to the Knicks? I get it, Kat and Wiggins don't work enough to make him happy and I don't blame him you have a very small window to be at the top of your game and try to win but throwing a hissy fit doesn't seem the best way to go about it.

Be a man and sit like Bell did. Put his money where his mouth was and eats over 800k a week. This is why the NBA sucks. Bitches like Butler will be a distraction and still collect a pay check. WTF has he ever done to call out anybody? lol. 22 points a game? Pffft. Nut up, become a free agent at the end of the year, make your money. I'm sure the nut huggers will disagree....
