How and when to keep DeMar and Ed around


I think we can universally accept here that DeMar DeRozan and Ed Davis are the prime building blocks for our team of the future, although I'm sure some people are little iffy on DeMar unless his D and competitiveness improves.

So, if these are the most important members of our young core, my question is; when do we try and sign them to extensions and how much money and years do we offer?

Being in the market we are in has to instill fear that our best American players will jump ship as soon as they can, I think there is reason to be scared with both these players, especially Davis who has shown he is not thrilled with being outside of his comfort level (I am citing those ridiculous stories about when he went to the UK and freaked out over the food there) and he may bolt to somewhere like Charlotte or Atlanta given half the chance.

Fortunately we don't have to worry about Amir Johnson not getting sick of Canada, if we can believe one of his latest tweets: "Man Canadian Tire has everything you need :)"

On a sidenote, another interesting bit of news from the twitter-verse is that Sonny Weems is in town to watch the home opener.
