Get to Know: DeMar DeRozan
DeMar DeRozan was drafted with the ninth pick in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Toronto Raptors.
DeRozan spent nine seasons with the Raptors and still holds 10 different franchise records including most points and games played.
During his time in Toronto, DeRozan earned a spot in four NBA All-Star Games appearing in the 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018 versions of the game.
DeRozan made All-NBA twice in his time in Toronto (2017, 2018) an honour reserved for the best players in the league each year.
After his time in Toronto, DeRozan spent three seasons with the Spurs playing under legendary head coach Gregg Popovich. In San Antonio, Derozan was able to showcase a different side of his game, averaging 6.9 assists per game in his final season. He announced to the basketball world that he wasn't just a scorer, he could be a great playmaker as well.
DeRozan has had many great moments in the NBA, but he's also seen success playing for his national team. DeRozan represented the United States at the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain and again at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro helping the U.S. win Gold in both competitions.
Even though this is year 12 for the 32-year-old DeRozan, he's proving that there's still plenty of basketball left for the kid from Compton, CA.
