DeRozan on the Move?

Raptors Looked to Trade DeRozan Last Offseason, may Explore Idea Again

LeBron James has sent shockwaves through Toronto hasn’t he?

Or LeBronto, whichever you prefer.

On the heels of an unceremonious firing of their now-former head coach of seven years Dwane Casey, new reports have arose stating that the Toronto Raptors have explored trading their franchise cornerstone DeMar DeRozan. With a sour taste still in the mouthes of many fans, another bombshell leak has circulated across the fanbase.

According to same reports, the Raptors may look to explore the idea once again this offseason as they look to quickly regroup and return to the postseason next year.

“Word is that the Raptors quietly explored their DeMar DeRozan trade options last summer — before they had any inkling that a breakout season was looming,” Marc Stein of the New York Times wrote.

DeRozan of course remained with the franchise through the season, helping lead the Raptors to a franchise-record 59-victories, including the team’s first ever number-one seed in its history. Adding some more consistency with his shot from the perimeter, DeRozan went onto make yet another All-Star team, while 23.0-points and 5.2-assists per game.

DeRozan still has three-years remaining on his contract in which he is set to make $27.7-million annually.
