Since then, the breakdown in communication between DeRozan and Toronto - specifically Raptors President of Basketball Operations Masai Ujiri - has been well documented.

Demar DeRozan said his goodbyes to Toronto in a heartfelt Instagram post Saturday after his trade from the Raptors earlier this week.

The Toronto Raptors acquired Kawhi Leonard, along with Danny Green, as a result of the trade with the San Antonio Spurs this past Wednesday.

Ujiri said Friday the fans were not forgotten in the trade decision but it's "hard to satisfy everybody". "We spoke. I think maybe my mistake was talking about what we expected going forward from him, not necessarily about the trade", Ujiri added. But if a guy's not happy, he's got to go somewhere where he can play, and I think [coach] Pop [Gregg Popovich] and [general manager] R.C. [Buford] and our team did a pretty good job of kind of meeting our needs for the future.

After missing out on landing a superstar this offseason with LeBron James joining the Los Angeles Lakers along with Kawhi Leonard recently being sent to the Toronto Raptors in a trade, the most important factor for the Philadelphia 76ers is remembering this team is still in wonderful shape.

Leonard, who was known to desire a move to his hometown Los Angeles Lakers, has reportedly indicated he isn't interested in playing in Toronto long-term. If there was a miscommunication there I do apologize to DeMar, his family, and his representation. "He would still be in San Antonio", Ujiri said per Jeff McDonald of the Express News.

"I think there's a lot to sell here", the Raps' executive said about the city. He's a free agent in 2019 and everyone was convinced that he'd be leaving for the Lakers or the Clippers.
