This move is yet another in Toronto's very active offseason so far, acquiring Hedo Turkoglu, Rasho Nesterovic, Jarrett Jack, Antoine Wright, and also drafting DeMar DeRozan. Toronto now has a solid lineup of of Jose Calderon, DeRozan, Belinelli, Turkoglu, Chris Bosh, Andrea Bargnani, Jack, Nesterovic, and Wright. Apparently Colangelo is pulling out all the stops he can to convince Bosh to stay. So far the leaderboard for "What can we do for you?" Sweepstakes, Cleveland remains in first, and Toronto now leaps ahead of Miami.
George meanwhile gets moved backed to an uptempo offense, where he seems to be at his best (which isn't much). For those that forgot, Devean's rookie year was the first of the Kobe-Shaq Threepeat, and left only 3 seasons ago for Dallas. He recently was traded from Dallas to Toronto in the 4-team Marion-Turkoglu signings. He also was noteworthy for nixing the first attempted Kidd trade to Dallas.
While in LA, George never scorer more than 7.4 points per game, never shot over 41.1%, and at best was 37.1% from the arc. In Dallas he was even worse, and never played in more than 60 games all three seasons there. George now looks at backing up Corey Maggette and the crybaby, Anthony Morrow. It'll be interesting to see how George and his 33.8% career average from 3 land works under Nelson's free flowing offense.
