An American basketball player who is currently playing for the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA is named as DeMar DeRozan. He played college basketball for the USC Trojans and was selected ninth overall by the Toronto Raptors in the 2009 NBA draft. He is a four-time NBA All-Star and a two time All-NBA Team member. He played with the Raptors for nine seasons and was only recently traded to the Spurs in the summer of 2018. He has played for the United States national team in the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics. DeRozan is a very talented basketball player. 

The extension options for the Spurs and DeRozan

The San Antonio Spurs are expected to have a stable offseason. DeRozan has a player option for $27.7 million. If he declines the option, he’d become an unrestricted free agent, meaning he could choose to re-sign with the Spurs or look to sign with any other team that has max cap space ($40.6 million) and wants to sign him. The Spurs could try to prevent this from happening by signing DeRozan to a four-year extension starting on July 6. Doing so would allow the team to get rid of his player option and increase his salary by 120%, which would go from $27.7 million to $33.3 million in the first year of the extension (2020-21 season).
