DeMar DeRozan glad to put Lakers rumors behind him

DeMar DeRozan is a Compton High grad, a USC product, and a California native. For that reason, with his free agency looming this past summer, he’d been constantly hearing about the Los Angeles Lakers.

NBA Atlantic Division Preview: Toronto Raptors

Projected Conference Finish: 4th Best Offseason Move: Jakob Poeltl was a fine pick I suppose. Worst Offseason Move: I’m fine with the loss of Bismack Biyombo. There was no reasonable way to keep him. What I don’t understand is using BOTH of their main offseason weapons, the No. 9 overall pick and mid-level exception, to replace him. If Jakob Poeltl is going to be a Biyombo replacement...

If you ask Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan, the good folks over at Sports Illustrated are selling him way short. DeRozan was ranked at No. 46 in SI’s annual Top 100 NBA Players list, and it was a decision he clearly did not agree with based on a couple of thinly-veiled subtweets he sent out on Thursday night.
