Former Toronto Raptors star DeMar DeRozan expressed dissatisfaction and surprise from the recent trade that would send him packing to San Antonio. Raptors President Masai Ujiri discussed the situation during a press conference for the Toronto Raptors, via ESPN, Ujiri said “I had a conversation with DeMar at summer league and I really want to leave it at that. We spoke ... I think maybe my mistake was talking about what we expected going forward from him. So, not necessarily talking about a trade but what I expect from him going forward, and I think that's where the gap was.”
Ujiri went on to say “In my job, I always have to assume we're going forward with the team that I have. If there was a miscommunication there, I do apologize to DeMar and his family and his representation. It's not what I meant.”
DeRozan did not seem impressed with the apology as he took to his Instagram and posted a facepalm emoji. Before that, DeRozan addressed the issue via his Instagram account earlier in the week, stating “Be told one thing & the outcome another. Can't trust em. Ain't no loyalty in this game. Sell you out quick for a little bit of nothing... Soon you'll understand... Don't disturb..."
