The Toronto Raptors made it to the Eastern Conference Finals before losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games.  Now they are looking on to their future and general manager Masai Ujiri said his top priority this offseason will be to re-sign DeMar DeRozan.

DeRozan, a two-time All-Star who averaged 23.5 points per game during the regular season, is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. DeRozan said on Saturday, a day after the Raptors were eliminated by the Cleveland Cavaliers, that he hoped to re-sign with the Raptors, the only team he has played for in his NBA career.

“Our No. 1 goal is to bring DeMar back here,” Ujiri said Monday at his season-ending news conference. “We feel great that he wants to come back to our organization. I spoke to him [Sunday], and his eyes were still red. You could tell. He said he felt empty the next day, which was telling.

“Speaking to him and Kyle [Lowry], they almost felt like we had a game to play still, and that game is not there. There’s that hunger, and you like that, and then now, it’s my part to figure it out.”
