DeMar DeRozan isn't changing his stance on Masai Ujiri.

Following his ESPN interview during which he told Chris Haynes he was "still in shock" and upset with how he was treated by the Raptors president, DeRozan told reporters at Team USA camp that he doesn't plan on speaking to Ujiri ever again.

"It's done," DeRozan said, according to TSN's Josh Lewenberg. "There's no reason to have a relationship."

It was reported last night that DeRozan also pulled out of the NBA's Africa game and Basketball Without Borders program, furthering the notion he is avoiding Ujiri.

While it may take time to mend the relationship between Raptors management and DeRozan, the 28-year-old is still praising the team's fan base and showing love for the city.

"There's no words I can come up with to express my appreciation," he said. "You don't really realize something until it's taken away, and I really realize that ... I always said it when I was there, that they are great fans, but they are some great f----n' fans. Period."
