DeMar DeRozan on relationship with Raptors president Masai Ujiri: ‘It’s done. There’s no reason to have a relationship’
DeMar DeRozan said Masai Ujiri lied to him, alleging the Raptors president directly told him he wouldn’t be traded before dealing him to the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.
Josh Lewenberg of TSN:
DeRozan said he hasn't spoken to Ujiri since initially hearing the news and doesn't intend to again. "It's done. There's no reason to have a relationship"— Josh Lewenberg (@JLew1050) July 26, 2018
Prediction: DeRozan will eventually get over this and reconnect with Ujiri.
Isaiah Thomas said in October he might never talk to Danny Ainge again. By January, Thomas revealed he the Celtics president were back on good terms. (Thomas reached out to Ainge this offseason about returning to Boston.)
But time heals most wounds. I doubt DeRozan gets over his grudge as quickly as Thomas did, but I’d bet on it eventually happening.
