Earlier tonight former Spurs reporter of Express-News Jabari Young claims that DeRozan is unhappy about his current situation in San Antonio. The speculation came out after Chris Haynes of TNT reported it at the broadcast of Spurs games against Mavericks.
The Spurs guard quickly asked about these rumors circulated in San Antonio, Texas.
DeRozan already said last time there’s nothing true about the rumors that he’s declining his player option worth 27 million. Once the free agency hit this summer, DeRozan could be a top tier if he’s going to opt-out of his contract.
The Spurs has been linked to the Miami Heat before the trade deadline to deal with the guard who averages 20,5 and 5 for two consecutive seasons. Before the deadline, the Spurs confirmed that DeRozan will not be dealt with.
Some fans on Twitter support DeRozan’s decision either he will be a Spur or not next season.
They love hating on you bro. I have the utmost faith in you. I’d love for you to retire a Spurs, but if you decide not to, I respect it. I’m still a fan regardless.
heu DeRozan I’m ur biggest fan and I will be very sad if you leave San Antonio please don’t leave, please
The Spurs are eyeing a 23 straight postseason run but still 4 games out of the contest with 19 games left. The commissioner advised the league will be out for at least 30 days.
