Spurs star DeMar DeRozan has mostly kept to himself this summer. As a C-tier star in a relatively small market, he doesn’t often make headlines in the NBA media.
But lately his name has surfaced in a number of trade rumors, mostly related to the Los Angeles Lakers, who are reportedly looking to recruit after a sub-par finish.
Today, DeRozan responded to all the noise by posting a cryptic tweet with a single character that only sparked further speculation.
So what does it mean? Are we supposed to believe that the rumors are completely wrong and that he is just sitting behind his laptop and enjoying the show?
Or are the claims justified?
DeRozan has been associated with the Lakers for years, largely due to the fact that he grew up as a Lakers fan in Compton, California.
At the age of 31 DeRozan has not yet won a title or even contested a single final. This lack of profit has led many to believe that he might be open to a fresh start elsewhere.
The Lakers, who are looking for a third track alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis, seem an ideal fit and are expected to be very active in their talent hunt this summer.
Unfortunately, there’s really no telling whether the trade rumors are anything more than noise or not. We just have to wait and see how things work out.
In the meantime, DeMar will continue to watch fans speculate about his future.
