DeMar DeRozan won’t play in NBA’s Africa game after trade

LOS ANGELES — San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan has withdrawn from participating in Basketball Without Borders and the NBA Africa game, sources close to DeRozan told ESPN.

The four-time All-Star, sources say, will use the time to get his affairs in order following the blockbuster trade to San Antonio that also sent forward Kawhi Leonard to Toronto.

It would have been DeRozan’s first visit to Africa.

The NBA will hold its Africa exhibition game in the South African capital of Pretoria on Aug. 4. Team World and Team Africa will play at Sun Arena in Time Square Casino.

Raptors’ president Masai Ujiri is a ambassador of Basketball Without Borders.
