DeMar DeRozan    G/F  Raptors

 

 

DeMar DeRozan said he believes the Raptors need to add more shooters this offseason in order to improve. Toronto ranked 21st in total 3-point makes during the regular season 2016-17 season. "You look at Kyle Korver and the display he put on. You stretch the floor, space the floor when you have more shooters," said DeRozan. "The more you have, your team becomes deadlier." One possible solution would be DeRozan expanding his range out to the 3-points stripe. He made a total of just 33 treys this season. In comparison, Sixers center Joel Embiid made 36 triples in just 31 games this season.

Dwane Casey will encourage DeMar DeRozan to add the 3-point shot to his arsenal this offseason. "It's no secret that the next evolution of [DeRozan's] game is [three-point shooting]," said Casey. DeRozan scored a career-high 27.3 points per game this past season, but he also shot just 26.6 percent from beyond the arc while contributing a measly 0.4 triples per contest. He's a career 28.1 percent shooting from 3-point range, but if he could make that a relevant aspect of his game, then he could definitely creep his way into the top-30 equation.

DeMar DeRozan scored 22 points on 8-of-18 shooting in Toronto's Game 4 loss to Cleveland, adding four boards, eight assists and four turnovers through 46 minutes of floor time. He did a great job of facilitating the Raptors' offense, but ultimately, Toronto just didn't have enough to get a single win against the defending champs. DeRozan hit career highs in scoring (27.3) and rebounding (5.2) during his age-27 season to go with 3.9 dimes, 1.1 steals and 2.4 turnovers a night, which was good enough for top-50 value in standard 9-cat leagues. He should be able to flirt with similar numbers next season, so he’ll make for a solid mid-round selection on draft day.

DeMar DeRozan scored a playoff career-high 37 points during a 115-94 loss to the Cavs in Game 3 on Friday, adding two rebounds, three assists, three steals and no turnovers in 40 minutes. After scoring a playoff career-low five points in Game 2, DeRozan was on the other end of the spectrum as a scorer, but didn't get much help on the perimeter -- the Raptors went 0-of-12 from three to start this game. The Raptors were hanging tough in the second half with the score 71-70, but they were thumped with a 28-10 run in the third and fourth quarters. With Kyle Lowry out during the regular season, DeRozan had a whopping 37.0 usage rate compared to a 31.6 with Lowry, so expect DeRozan to get more shots again in Game 4 on Sunday. Lowry will likely be a game-time decision, but he'll probably be limited regardless.

DeMar DeRozan had an atrocious game on Wednesday, shooting 2-of-11 from the field for five points with three rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes. DeRozan didn't score until midway through the second quarter and he missed his first nine shots. Free throws are a huge part of his offense and he attempted 8.7 freebies per game during the regular season, but finished just 1-of-3 at the line tonight with Cleveland's defense focused on him. He'll need to be far better for Toronto to have a chance to climb out of an 0-2 hole in the series.
