    tl;dr: DeRozan is playing better lately and that better play has translated into a positive impact for one of the few times in his career. Also discussed a potential contract extension.

    Also how can 28 games in a losing season ever Trump the other 1.5 seasons of data (not to mention the last 11 years). That’s how teams make franchise crippling mistakes.

    Even if this was sustainable the amount of work around Derozan it would take to be a legit payoff team is so daunting his extension would be over by then.

    What's he doing that much different and how are the team results any different?

    3-7 last 10 games.
    His shooting % has always been good. It's still good but it hasn't gone up. I like his assortment of moves.
    LMA backs up to the trey line more often. That has helped give DD more room. Glad it took LMA and CIA Pop only 3 full seasons to figure that out.
    Bryn Forms still on the floor a lot with DD.

    DD's average - below average D would not be exposed as much if he was not paired with Lock Down Bryn for the Spurs perimeter D.

    DD is doing fine but not sure what you think has changed OP.

    Unless Pop gave Demar back spasms, he hasn't figured out how to make him a positive asset. Derozan's a ball dominant bucket of empty stats that has a negative impact on the team.

    If this ty season makes him opt out and walk this summer it will have been worth it.

    I have no issues with DD. I find him pretty fun to watch and I think he is pretty good. He isn't a Leonard and people should probably stop labelling him as the guy who was traded for Leonard. In saying that, if they extend DD, we will have another pretty poor season on our hands unless one of Murray/White/Walker step up. If all three do, then the team are a deep playoff run team. But its more likely they won't all step up at the same time or ever. By the time 2021 offseason rolls around, Spurs would have cap space and roster spots to build a team around the young nucularist and DD. By the time that happens, DD would be 32 and LMA (if he still with the team) I would assume be a role player at his age.


    So as you can see, Spurs are in a tough position. They didn't make any trade deadline moves, in which I assume was to keep the 2021 offseason cap room. But if they commit to DD, you pretty much have to trade Gay for a lengthy contract who is ready to contribute and probably also use your full MLE on a 3 to 4-year contract.

    Given PATFO’s track record lately, this may end up in the worst possible scenario.

    Thanks for the article. Even a bit of promising news is good to hear. LMA shooting 3's has been good to see despite folding in the 4th quarter so often of late. I'm looking forward to the last 28 games. Doubt the 8th seed is a possibility unless there are some devastating injuries in Memphis.

    I hope Derozan stays on the spurs. He's flawed but at least he has a lot of heart and actually competes every game. Can't say that about the other players

    He isn't staying with you guys lol. He is opting out and signing with a team that will build around him and allow him to be an all-star again. Keep dreaming if you think he's staying with you guys.

    If he does he does. However the Raptors won't see a ring again until the Spurs trade another disgruntled superstar in his prime out of pure stupidity.

    I am a Raptors fan and a Demar Fan. I'm just letting you know that it's been a displeasure watching him the last year and a half on this team. He has pretty much wasted 2 years of his prime and I'm sure he feels that way too. You think he wants to run it back for a few more seasons? lol.

    DeRozan looks like a much better player in SA the h ever did in Toronto. When he played in Toronto most people thought his game was disgusting here in SA he gets credit from rational people for being a well rounded player.

    He's still the same mentally weak player that can't shoot 3s and is a bottom 20 defensive player. He's basically rajon rondo with a low post game. It was a joke when the spurs traded for him and it's a joke that he could even be resigned

    Sign and trade DeRozan this summer (if possible).

    He's an "instant offense" specialist but this team is not good enough to need such a player yet.

    It's a huge gamble to get rid of him but sometimes you have to face the abyss before you turn the corner.

    I thought the Spurs already found that way when they benched him for "back spasms." Lo and behold Murray and White are actually good players, they just needed Demar out of the way.

    His most positive use as an asset would hopefully be as a trade piece. I like DeRozan, and I think he's probably the Spurs second best player, but if the Spurs have their sights set on returning to prominence, it probably can't be done with him as the centerpiece.

    Idk if he wasn't just shooting for ASG. Now that he's not selected, I hope he's not back to mediocre self. I'm not hating, but he's Debbie downer. Just play, take those open 3's, try to distribute and enough complaining.
