DeMar DeRozan, in discussing whether he was hesitant to come back due to his contract option situation, said, “I never think about the next year. For me, it’s all about the times that we’re living in. So much is going on with COVID going around, and justice things that everybody is fighting against right now. There’s so much in the world that’s going on that I put that into play before I even think about my next year option or whatever.”
