He is under contract through the 2010-11 season, with two team option years to follow. The Raptors selected DeRozan with the ninth overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft. Per team policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

DeRozan is expected to see his first action as a member of the Raptors during the Las Vegas Summer Pro League presented by EA Sports in Las Vegas, Nevada from July 10-19. The Raptors’ entry will open play Friday, July 10 versus the Los Angeles Lakers.

DeRozan, 6-foot-7, 220 pounds, averaged 13.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in his lone season with the Trojans. He finished second on the team in field goal percentage (.523 – 8th in the Pac-10 Conference). His 485 points ranks third all-time for a USC freshman and his 201 rebounds ranks fourth.

DeRozan earned first-team Pac-10 All Freshman honours and was named Pac-10 Tournament MVP. He had 21 points and career-best 13 rebounds against UCLA in the tournament semifinal and a career-best 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting to lead the Trojans to a win over Arizona State in the tournament final.

As a senior at Compton High School (Compton, California), DeRozan earned first-team Parade All-America honours. He averaged 29.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 3.0 steals in his senior season leading Compton to consecutive Moore League championships.

Do you know of any way to watch him? Last I heard, summer league games aren't going to be televised.

That's true, but the NBA and CBS shows highlights on youtube after each day.

And I think rapstv shows them to?

You can watch it online for 15 bucks. Wouldn't recommend it unless you desperately want to watch bad basketball.

Considering he's not a Raptor anymore, I don't see why he'd be playing for us.

I expect this kid to look alot more like Jamario Moon than Vince Carter.
Which is just fine.
As long as we temper our expectations of him he should do alright. The earlier projections of DD as the starting 2 were frightening. He's probably going to need to be brought along much slower than that.

You're not talking long-term, are you? Demar's got more talent in his left pinky nail than Jamario has in his whole body.

If you're talking first year, short-term, then yes I agree with you. But the kid's going to pan out.
