Derozan's reputation with officials

DeRozan picked up his fifth technical foul of the season on Tuesday Aaron Gray is second on the team with three -- and coach Dwane Casey is warning DeRozan to ease off a little bit.

"I told him, 'You're going to be a young star in this league, you don't want a reputation of going at officials,'" said the coach.

DeRozan often seems to have a case when he complains about non-calls, but that's likely the case for any number of young players.

And while he's done a good job most nights of playing through his frustrations, the periodic outbursts diminish his attempts to earn more respect from the officials, a valuable commodity for a young player
