Could DeMar DeRozan be coming back to Toronto? After the way things ended between the star and the Raptors, it might seem unlikely. After an NBA executive said Toronto is a good potential destination for the current San Antonio Spurs player, DeMar DeRozan trade talks have Toronto fans calling BS.\nAn NBA Western Conference exec. told HoopsHype that the Raptors could be a logical team if the Spurs are thinking about moving him.\n“It sounds crazy, but Toronto actually makes a lot of sense as a landing spot for DeRozan,” the unnamed official said.\nThe NBA player's name has been increasingly mentioned in recent weeks as a potential likely trade for the Spurs. The Texas franchise is struggling in the west and there is talk they plan to rebuild the team around their younger players.\nMany teams were mentioned as potential teams for DeRozan, and it was suggested the 6ix could be a possibility after the team became NBA champions this year.\nIn terms of the players the Raptors might have to give up to attract their former member, the quoted exec. cited two first-team stars as potential bait.\n“As far as what Toronto would have to give up, it would probably have to be a first-round pick plus Serge Ibaka or Marc Gasol,” the executive suggested.\nA western conference executive said Toronto is a good landing spot for DeMar DeRozan 👀“It sounds crazy, but Toronto actually makes a lot of sense as a landing spot for DeRozan...it would probably have to be a 1st-round pick + Ibaka or Gasol.”(Via https://t.co/GC3IQI3jCG) pic.twitter.com/p8IDVZO5os— NBA Central (@TheNBACentral) November 27, 2019\nDeRozan's name still carries a lot of weight in Canada and the Ontario capital after his long career with the city's NBA team.\nAnd Raptors fans were quick to have their say on the idea of their former hero returning.\nThe strong feeling appeared to be that trading for DeRozan wouldn't actually make much sense given their improvement since he left.\n“Toronto is better off without him in all honesty,” read one tweet.\nI love Derozan but this doesn't make much sense for either team. I like our current team and we'd have to give him a big contract which woild effect our cap space in 2021. Ibaka and a low 1st round pick isn't enough for the Spurs to trade him either. https://t.co/1hJdq5ePpZ— . (@Raptors97) November 27, 2019\nAs a Raptors fan I say NO THANKS! Masai and Bobby have a proven track record when it comes to the draft, Derozan is a free agent at years end and we can’t have him clogging cap space for Giannis 2021 and lastly he is a terrible defender who’s more scared to shoot 3s than Simmons. https://t.co/Vn8GiftPYx— Lucas Di Rocco (@Lucasdirocco) November 27, 2019\nRaptors ain’t giving up Ibaka or Gasol— Mohamad salem (@Mohamad08568939) November 27, 2019\nI love Demar but this makes less than zero sense. Gasol alone is more valuable to this team than Demar would be.— Mike Irv (@Mike_Irvine) November 27, 2019\ntoronto is better off without him in all honesty...— Matteo (@FrescoMG) November 27, 2019\npic.twitter.com/tJn4N0E4SY— Kawhi is the best in the 🌎 (@JeffreyAndBean) November 27, 2019\nThe season after they traded him, they won a ring so I think they’re better off without him— 𝐵𝓇𝓎𝒸𝑒 🔴⚪️⚫️ (6-12) (@PlayoffLavine) November 27, 2019\nMaybe this isn't surprising. Just last week, after all, fans were suggesting that Pascal Siakam is a much better player than DeRozan ever was.\nAlthough fans might not be excited if this is a trade that could happen, the Spurs player once said that being traded to Toronto was his most peak moment in his career.\nBeing traded back to a team that just won their first championship without him might be too awkward, anyway. The shooting guard admitted he couldn't even watch the Raptors championship ceremony.\nThere are stories everywhere.
