DeRozan is entering his third season with the Spurs. In 2019-20, he led the team in scoring with an average of 22.1 points per game on a career-best 53.1 percent shooting from the field. The Spurs just missed the playoffs, finishing the season with a 32-39 record.
Had DeRozan not opted into his player option for the upcoming season, he would've been one of the best unrestricted free agents available.
