DeMar DeRozan will focus on getting a deal done with the Raptors when free agency opens and has no plans to talk with other teams “barring the unforeseen development of talks breaking down” with Toronto.
Some Raptors fans won’t like it because they feel like his ceiling as a frontline guy isn’t high enough but this is probably the best situation for both parties. The Raptors aren’t going to get a whole lot of free agents that are better than him and for DeRozan he gets continuity and a coach he likes playing for. Now the challenge for the Raptors will be addressing the power forward position in a meaningful way.
