I wonder if DeRozan should play more SF from here on out.

Great job of coaching tonight by Casey . Went small and had Bayless starting at sg and covering D-Will .
DD played well tonight , He was moving without the ball well and attacking the rim after getting the ball on a cut . Casey used him well tonight and this is how he needs to be used if he's going to be effective .
Bayless had a good game , to bad he wasn't a couple of inches bigger because he looks alot better at sg than he does at pg .
Great D overall by everyone , it's shocking the difference a coach can make .
I'm kind of shocked this hasn't been mentioned, but this came out yesterday;
Jose Calderon/Leandro Barbosa: The Raptors are shopping. They’d like to pick up another draft pick or two, but the real need is at Small Forward.
Sources close to the process say the Raptors plan to make life hard on the Denver Nuggets with regards to restricted free agent Wilson Chandler. Wilson is waiting for his clearance from China after dominating in the CBA.
Sources say that Jose Calderon and Leandro Barbosa could be moved to land a traded player exception or smaller assets to swap with Denver in a sign and trade.
The Nuggets say they will re-sign Wilson, but with the dollars committed to Nene, Arron Afflalo and now Danilo Gallinari – Toronto may put a number on the table via a sign and trade offer that makes re-signing Chandler in Denver tough.
Denver holds the power as Wilson is a restricted free agent, but Toronto has eyes for Wilson and seems willing to pony up the dollars. They’d still need a deal, but once one team puts a crazy number on the table that’s how prices get set.
A starting small forward still sits at the top of the Raptor’s wish list, and it seems Calderon and LB are the chips they will cash to get one, so keep that in mind as other names start to shake loose.
Assets Mixes good size and athleticism with coordination and a solid skill-level. Can play anywhere from shooting guard to power forward. A good rebounder. Does it all, from blocking shots to hitting threes.
Flaws A bit inconsistent and doesn't stand out in any one area. While he can score like a shooting guard and rebound like a power forward he might benefit by establishing a more clear role.
Career potential Versatile above-average swingman.
Would be a sensational addition to the lineup and really shore up the SF position.
