DeRozan recently spoke with media and says that he’s developed a relationship with team mate Rudy Gay that has helped him get in the right state of mind.
DeMar DeRozan wasn’t initially happy about the trade from Toronto to San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.
Ironically enough while speaking with media he revealed that the reason he and Kyle Lowry were so close friends was because of Rudy Gay.

DeRozan mentions that while speaking with interviewers “everybody looks at me and Kyle’s relationship, but me and Kyle’s relationship wouldn’t have started if it hadn’t been for Rudy. That should kind of speak volumes.”
He said he’s also very excited to work with a coach of Gregg Popovich’s stature and describe being a part of the Spurs franchise as “definitely a blessing.”
