The thing with DD is I don't see him becoming a star type player until his outside games improves. Right now his offensive game is inconsistent and his defensive game is inconsistent at best.
I was never a huge fan of this pick but I still think he has talent, and in his 3rd year scored at an alright rate all things considered. I don't see an advantage in trading him as I don't see us getting anything back that would (A) be an upgrade over DD or (B) have as much potential as DD.
So in the end I think the wait and see approach is best served here. The last thing this franchise needs is to trade this guy and watch him break out for another team.I still think he is more valuable to Toronto compared to what Toronto would receive in a trade for his services. Keep DD and draft 8th and take BPA, it may not be the popular choice but I think it's the smart choice.
