DeMar DeRozan Gives Toronto Raptors "The Hand"

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..."
