Apparently, tonight’s Toronto-San Antonio game won’t be a chance for reconciliation.
Has he connected with Raptors president Masai Ujiri since the deal?
“I have no reason to talk to him,” DeRozan said. “At all.”
Many people are taking their cues from DeRozan. Kyle Lowry, Dwane Casey and Blake Griffin have all shown animosity toward Ujiri. Ujiri has become a villain to some while building one of the top teams in the NBA.
I still suspect this will eventually subside. Ujiri and DeRozan accomplished so much together. Eventually, they’ll probably look back fondly on those years.
But the wounds are apparently too fresh for DeRozan, who said before the season he plans to go for 50 when the Spurs play the Raptors.
