DeMar DeRozan could be staying in San Antonio for the long haul.
The Spurs are considering offering DeRozan a max deal and “have not ruled out” extending his contract, the San Antonio Express-News reported.
Coach Gregg Popovich is impressed with how DeRozan and the rest of the Spurs mesh and apparently sees DeRozan as a member of the team’s core. While the contract hasn’t been offered yet, it could come before the season starts, according to the report.
DeRozan, traded to San Antonio as part of the Kawhi Leonard deal, has two years left on the five-year, $139 million ($137.5 million guaranteed) contract he signed with the Raptors in before the 2016-17 season that includes a player option set next summer. He is set to make just more than $27.7 million the next two seasons under the current deal.
