San Antonio spurs offensive lineman demar Derozan has denied rumors that He wants to leave the team.
“I’m trying to figure out when I could have said such nonsense,” Derozan wrote on his Instagram page.
Earlier, Derozan’s desire to leave San Antonio was stated by one of the NBA agents in an interview with the Athletic. Derozan has a player option for the 2020/2021 season worth more than $ 27 million. If the option is rejected and a 4-time NBA all-star player enters the free agent market, they risk getting a lower salary. Derozan ended up with the San Antonio spurs before the 2018/2019 season, when the Toronto raptors traded him for Kawai Leonard and then won the NBA title for the first time in franchise history.

Frank Vogel – about China: I was scared in a Communist country. I thought they wouldn’t let me out
Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel recalled a visit to China last year in the midst of a conflict between local authorities and the NBA after Houston rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted in support of the Hong Kong protests.
“I remember feeling relatively safe, but I was a little scared, because obviously in a Communist country, when you’re at odds with the government, they shouldn’t let you out. I didn’t think it would go this far, but none of us really knew. The NBA, after Daryl Morey’s tweet, supported the idea of free speech, which is one of the pillars of our country, thanks to the position of Adam Silveraa. The League found itself in a difficult relationship with the Chinese government. Thus, we felt like enemies of the state, and in some ways it could have ended badly, ” – quotes Vogel Parlons Basket.
