Evans and DeRozan would be a nice duo. Coming from the same draft class, both have potential (Evans having more), and they probably could push each other. I know Raptor fans have a problem with DeRozan's consistency and I obviously don't like the contract he got (can't be getting $10 million a year and produce only 18/5), but yeah WAY more heart than Bargs.
I can see Cousins and Ed Davis being insanely tough inside and would make us a top rebounding team instantly, with Amir Johnson coming off the bench. Might mean have to give up on Jonas in a trade, but I wouldn't mind taking the risk.
