News: DeRozan has improved his conditioning, and is working on being a better passer and attacking with his off hand, the Toronto Sun's Ryan Wolstat reports. [-]
Impact: This is kind of a typical training camp report, where the reporter talks about what a player is working on and what kind of shape he's in. DeRozan said he could probably play a 40-minute game now, although he played 40-plus minutes on 24 occasions last season, so that's not really news. He was also proud of the fact that he was improving with using his left hand, which, in addition to being a skill basketball players work on in grade school, is much easier to execute in practice than in games. However, a lot of the underlying comments from DeRozan, Kyle Lowry and Dwane Casey suggest that the franchise shooting guard may be ready to take another step forward this season, building upon his All-Star season from a year ago. Basically all of DeRozan's counting stats have improved over the past two seasons, including minutes, so it remains to be seen if he can be noticeably more valuable than he was last season when he averaged 38.2 minutes per game. Few players have as high of a floor in fantasy as DeRozan because of that high-end playing time, and, if he can be a better passer and a better attacker if he can go to the bucket with either hand, he could be an even better value on draft day.
