Raptors head sorry for DeRozan deal 'miscommunication'

Shortly after Raptors president Masai Ujiri apologized Friday, DeRozan added a new post to his Instagram feed: a facepalm emoji, a symbol of frustration and exasperation. The problem, of course, is that the San Antonio Spurs didn't have to trade him to a place he wanted to play, and apparently Toronto wasn't initially one of those preferred destinations.

Not to mention, DeMar DeRozan, who was sent to the San Antonio Spurs as part of the trade for Leonard, was one of the main reasons why Toronto was such a threat all these years due to his scoring ability.

Ujiri said Friday the fans were not forgotten in the trade decision but it's "hard to satisfy everybody".

According to at least one rumor, some close to Leonard think he will stay with Toronto.

Specifically with the Lakers, although playing for the Clippers reportedly has become more of an option as of late for Leonard. Some will treat a player and their family and representation with respect, others don't even return phone calls. I mean, people criticize us for sitting guys down.

Not only is it the first time the three-time Oscar victor has appeared in a sequel to one of her films, it's also the first time she's reunited on screen with former Silkwood co-star Cher .

"I think there's a lot to sell here", the Raps' executive said about the city.

"You can't do this same thing over and over again", Ujiri said.

League sources told ESPN on Wednesday that neither Leonard nor DeRozan was enthusiastic about the deal. There are many reasons Leonard should sign with the Brooklyn Nets as an unrestricted free agent in 2019.

"San Antonio, we obviously have a reputation for taking care of our players, nearly too much, I mean, people criticize us for sitting guys down", he said.

As for the Raptors, a healthy Leonard teaming up with Kyle Lowry certainly has potential, but also very risky for a team that was already facing pressure parting ways with Dwane Casey this offseason, despite finishing with the best record in the Eastern Conference during the regular season. "I'm confident. I think we have a good game plan, and we'll see how that goes".
