DeMar DeRozan

One of the most lethal scorers in the NBA of the last decade, DeMar DeRozan could also be a candidate to be traded if the Bulls decide to ship everyone out and start a full-on rebuild. Sitting at 36th on the all-time scoring list, DeRozan has over 21,000 points in his career.

But after many years of filling up the stat sheet with points, DeRozan was able to grow his game and become a much better playmaker during his three-year tenure with the Spurs. Now, he is one of the best offensive conductors in the game, and was a major reason the Bulls finished in the top six in the Eastern Conference two seasons ago.

If the Clippers were to hypothetically try to trade for DeMar DeRozan, they would likely be facing the same circumstances they would in a potential Zach LaVine trade. LA would have to give up another of their ball handlers and be forced to start all over. DeRozan is a great player, but this would simply not be worth it.

The role DeRozan would be playing for the Clippers would be similar to Harden's current role. With that in mind, it is best for LA to stay away here.

Verdict: Pass
