The 9th overall pick by Toronto Raptors at the 2009 NBA Draft, DeMar Derozan is an esteemed shooting guard. Revered for his high-flying maneuvers on the court, he made his first NBA All-Star debut in 2014.
After nine glorious seasons with the Raptors, the Compton, California-native got traded to fellow NBA side San Antonio Spurs ahead of the 2018/19 campaign. The deal also saw fellow athletes Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green travel to the north of the country.
DeMar's move to Spurs - which ensured him a $27.8 million annually in salary for three seasons - came at a precarious time. Amid the much-hyped trade, his relationship with wife prospect Kiara Morrison was in tatters.
