“You Won’t Believe Where DeMar DeRozan Could Be Playing Next!”



Sacramento Kings are the frontrunners in the race to sign NBA star DeMar DeRozan. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said the Kings and Chicago Bulls were discussing a deal to bring the three-time All-NBA and six-time All-Star selection to Sacramento. The Kings want to add a star to their core of De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis as well as Keegan Murray, Malik Monk, and Keegan. DeRozan has been mentioned in trade talks with the Washington Wizards, Washington Jazz, and New Orleans4


Pelicans. DeRozan is seeking $25 million annually as an unrestricted agent. He spent the last three years in Chicago. DeRozan, 34, was the runner-up in the NBA’s Clutch player of the year award after averaging 24 points, 4.3 boards, 5.3 assist and 1.1 steals. DeRozan’s name has also been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers. The Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, and Los Angeles Clippers have all been mentioned as potential suitors. However, Wojnarowski believes Sacramento is on top of things.

Wojnarowski stated on SportsCenter that “I believe DeMar DeRozan played his final game for the Chicago Bulls.” The Sacramento Kings have been in contact with the team that has been working hard to try and find a trade scenario. They’re going need a third party to be involved in a trade. Chicago is willing to help DeMar DeRozan obtain more than the mid level exception with a team without cap space. However, they do not want to accept back contracts or contracts of any significance. The conversations are continuing. They will need to find a third team that can take a larger salary. There are other scenarios that DeMar DeRozan could be in, but Sacramento is the team I’m watching as the moratorium comes to an end. DeRozan is a Compton native and a 15-year NBA vet who graduated from USC with the No. 9 pick in 2009. The No. 9 pick was made in the 2009 NBA draft. Before moving to Chicago, he spent nine years playing for the Toronto Raptors before joining the San Antonio Spurs.


DeRozan made the All-NBA third team in 2017, before being named to the All-NBA second team in 2018 and in 2022. In 2021-22, he averaged a high of 27,9 points and shot 50.4% on the field. He also had a 35.2% career-high from three-point range. DeRozan stands at 6’6″ and 220 lbs with a wingspan of 6’9″. Early in his career, he spent the majority of his time as a shooting guard before switching to small forward. DeRozan is known as a lethal midrange scorer in the NBA. He has a career 3 point shooting percentage of 29.6%. DeRozan would not address Sacramento’s needs for size, defense and length, but he could give the Kings a shot creator to go along with Fox, the Clutch player of the year in 2023.
