I kind of overshot when I called him the most gifted player that is likely to be in the draft this year before the season, but I think he is kind of showing what I meant. His skill set isn't at an NBA level, but skills are almost one of the last things you look at because if a guy works hard (which is one of the more important things in a prospect) those skills will come. DeRozan has those gifts that you can't teach and that is what is going to seperate him from most of these other good college SG in the NBA.

I've watched a lot of USC games, and Derozan just hasn't been impressive to me. Maybe it's the offense USC runs or something... but I just keep waiting for Demar to do something that makes me say, "wow, this kid is a gamer"... and it hasn't happened yet.

He is one that needs a few years in college, but will probably leave this year and waste into the second round DeAndre Jordan style. Jordan could easily have been a lottery pick this year if he had stayed.

What team in the NBA do you guys think could use Derozan and where will he probably end up?

Also, what type of numbers do you see him putting up in his prime

I wonder if he's better off just sucking on some NBA bench for another couple of years.. Might be better off learning the pro game as soon as possible.. But yeah, I'm not sure though.. Tim Floyd coaches an NBA game.. Not sure what to think..

He needs to still work on his jumper. His form isn't the best and sometimes the ball has side spin or is even flat when he shoots his jumper. Most of his points are always off of dunks which isn't a bad thing but he needs to develop that jumper to be able to start dominating games. He has tons of work to do before ever dominating the NCAA so its gonna take awhile before he dominates the NBA.

The Bobcats.

Raja Bell is aging so he'd be a great player to have for the future. They don't really have a two guard other than Bell which is why they place Felton at the two alot. I think Felton will be gone after this season though.

Augustin/Singletary
Bell/Derozan
Wallace/Radmanovic
Diaw/Diop
Okafor/Ajinca

MJ won't take him. MJ likes celebrated college guys, not freshman phenoms who need serious development. I would look MJ to take Gerald Henderson, Stephen Curry, or Earl Clark. Hell, I wouldn't put it past him to trade for a lower pick just to get DeJuan Blair or Hansbrough.

Its already known that Charlotte, and the Knicks are both in love with Curry. If hes gone before Charlotte picks than Charlotte will definately go after Derozan, assuming he isnt gone as well.

Iguodala without the floor vision. Terrence Williams from Louisville really reminds me of Andre.

Nah, to be honest he is a playmaker, he uses his athelticism to jump and make passes that most players cant.
