DeMar DeRozan Instagram Reaction To Being Traded Going Viral

DeMar DeRozan warms up for the Raptors.

Early this morning, news broke that the Toronto Raptors and San Antonio Spurs were finalizing a deal involving Spurs star Kawhi Leonard. Leonard is the big name in the trade, but he isn't the only star on the move.

Toronto has agreed to send DeMar DeRozan back to San Antonio as part of the compensation, reports ESPN. While the Raptors reportedly had told DeRozan recently he wouldn't be traded, there was no way he couldn't be included in a deal for Kawhi.

It seems that DeRozan didn't take the news kindly. Right before ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Chris Haynes broke news of the deal, the All-Star guard posted some cryptic updates to his Instagram story.

"Be told one thing & outcome another. Can't trust em. Ain't no loyalty in this game. Sell you out quit for a little bit of nothing..." said one post. Two more said "soon you'll understand..." and "Don't disturb..."

You can see screencaps of the posts below.

DeRozan, who turns 29 on August 7, has been with the Raptors his entire career. He was a first-round pick of the team out of USC in 2009.

It is never easy getting dealt, especially when you're leaving the only team you have known.
