While guesting on the Woj Pod with ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, DeRozan said they became close after Toronto traded Rudy Gay the following season (staring at 11:27):
“My first year with Kyle (Lowry), (we) didn’t say a word to one another. We didn’t speak.
“We didn’t have a conversation. We didn’t hang out. We didn’t go eat.
“We didn’t sit next to each other. Nothing. I didn’t have his phone number. Nothing.”
