Following the best stretch of basketball of his career, DeMar DeRozan’s future with the Toronto Raptors has been a popular discussion point this week.
The all-star guard is expected to opt out of his contract at the end of the season in order to become a free agent, but DeRozan continued to maintain his stance regarding his appreciation for the city of Toronto in a guest appearance on Sportsnet 590 The Fan Friday morning .
“That’s one you thing you can never question: my loyalty to the city,” DeRozan told host Joey Vendetta on the Jeff Blair Show. “How much I really love and appreciate the team and the organization. I think all the fans understand that. A lot of times they don’t understand how contracts or things like that. But I’ve always stressed that this is where I want to be my whole career.”
