Colangelo did say he’s “definitely exploring acquiring another top-10 pick,” but maintains that DeRozan “won’t be part of any package.”
Colangelo says there’s “no truth at all” to rumor he offered DeMar DeRozan for the #2 pick. “DeMar has never been part of any conversation.”
As we maintained when this rumor broke, Bryan Colangelo is not stupid enough to deal DeRozan for Williams.
Again, what we should have all taken from the rumor is that the Toronto Raptors are the front runners for the second overall pick, not that Bill Ingram thought DeRozan would make sense in a package for the No. 2.
I am glad this has been all cleared up because Raptors fans all over the world had become really concerned.
