San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan was a guest on ESPN W's "Be Honest" and discusses Kawhi Leonard and his former team.

With the Raptors in the 2019 East Finals, DeRozan was asked about the comparisons to Leonard in their current situations.

During the show, he was told Leonard said he was in a bad place with the Spurs last season and now is happy with Toronto.

DeRozan responded with class and maturity.

"You can't never have no malicious intent towards nothing. Because they'll come right back on you at the end of the day.
Every guy I ever had a relationship with on that team, I talk to them at least once a week.
It be different if I was the guy like 'I don't want to hear that. Don't call me. I hope you all lose.' I just try to be supportive because at the end of the day, it will come back around.
For me, I'm happy for them.

DeRozan initially did not take the trade well to the Spurs last summer.

Reports of the Raptors GM telling him he was't getting traded only to be a part of the blockbuster deal reportedly did not sit well with the Spurs guard.

However, DeRozan is happy in San Antonio and had a great time in his first season with the Spurs.

“It was great, a lot of great times. I learned a lot playing with a new groups of guys," said DeRozan after game 7 versus the Nuggets.
