    That is big news.

    Also retweeted by the man himself.


    Congrats, DeMar!

        Demar Derozan Mixtape by GameEntertainment

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHggB5drFlo

        Don't know how to embed, but this video brought tears(literally) knowing we drafted this guy, when you watch this mix tape only, you would think he was a top 10 player, I know he doesn't do those moves often, or successfully, but watching this mix tape makes me realize that although his handle is shaky, he is still an excellent slasher, and his post game is picturesque for a SG, he is already pretty strong, but once he gets stronger and better positioning he could be a scary option, superstar or not, we have a really good player on our hands, hopefully he makes a huge jump in his development, Toronto deserves a guy like this.

        Also props to GameEntertainment, excellent mix and makes me jealous of his video editing.

                What a way to start the summer! Practicing with best players in the world. This exactly what DD needs to push him to the next level. I've always felt that DD has always had a lack of confidence at times. If he goes into this and does well. Even if he doesn't make the team or if he makes it and doesn't play a minute. He'll gain much needed experience and confidence. He'll know that he can play with theses guys and won't hesitate.

                    Great news, hopefully he takes his practices with the USA team competitively(try hard) and work harder when he sees he needs to improve to make the 2016 or 2020 Olympics.

                      He has the chance to play for his nation this Summer, even though it'll be hard with Wade and Bryant at those positions, if he plays and works hard, he can earn it....

                      Notice how many of the players who have participated in Olympic games/camps etc. have become very, very good NBA players...

                        Thank you Jerry Colangelo!

                        But seriously, this is great new for DeMar/Raptors.

                          BC definitely pulled some strings, but it'll be really good for Demar to go up against some of the best and see how they train/practice.

                          I know its just the practice squad and he hasn't made the team or anything but i expect there will be some backlash over this when a better player doesn't get to go.

                            I can't help but think this as well. I hope he comes back from camp with a new focus and skills on the defensive end... like Bosh did when he came back from his role on the USA team as a great defensive presence.

                              Yes DeMar. Maybe the camp will result in DeMar aspiring to be the best at his position. It should only help his growth.

                              Brian Colangelo. I don't know what you did but good for you, looking out for the Raps! lol
