Antawn Jamison Wants DeRozan

Playing the role of GM, Jamison would have the Wiz pick DeMar in the NBA Draft: “In a relatively surprising move, Antawn Jamison did not take a member of North Carolina’s championship team (I’m half-kidding). Jamison went with USC freshman swingman DeMar DeRozan. But when you read his explanation, you will see the North Carolina connection (there had to be one, right?). Jamison says: ‘He reminds me of Vince Carter as a Tar Heel — the build, the body and athleticism. He could’ve been a top pick if we didn’t have the age limit. But he’ll benefit from the veterans, and in two or three years, he can be a household name.’ Interesting, eh? One, that Jamison feels that he would benefit from being around the vets. And two, that he is willing for DeRozan to be a household name ‘in two or three years.’ Jamison just turned 33 this month and his deal ends in three years.”

    Wouldn’t Harden be smarter? Or is Nick Wise that close to Jordan that they don’t want to stunt his growth?

    Oops, sorry, Nick Young. Sorry, got Arizona on the brain.

    We could do worse than DeMar. Really though, it’s tough to guess who will still be on the board by the fifth pick anyway.

    Minny needs DeRozan. Would be PERFECT.

    For the love of God let the Raptors get DeMar. Please. Would immediately make my year covering Toronto more interesting.

    Yea, I think Harden’s the play here. He can step into the 2 immediately and is instantly an upgrade over DeShawn. Didn’t Harden bring the ball up at ASU from time to time too? If so, then that will allow Zero to slide to the 2 occasionally. If Arenas can stay healthy, and that’s a big if, this Wiz team will have a nice mix of vets and youth.

    Jamison is smart.

    Not a good choice i dont see a need for anyone in the draft maybe harden…maybe they should get curry and trade him to the knicks maybe they could get someone good for him, bring hughes back or something.

    isnt he gonna get traded anyway?

  • seven deuce

    ‘Twan doesn’t want any bigs taking his minutes LOL! Well if he played in the paint, Jordan Hill wouldn’t be getting drafted by the Wizards (assuming he’s still on the board).

  • Mike

    He always handled the ball at ASU. He could give Gil a break and let him get off the ball.

    Breaking News: Foye And Miller to the Wizards for the #5 PICK! This wont be happening.

    BETCATS: I just read that. Can’t believe they have up their pick…. not a smart move.

  • Some Fat Tard
