DeMar DeRozan and the San Antonio Spurs remain quite a ways apart on contract extension talks, sources told The Athletic's Sam Amick.

Reports from early October stated San Antonio was interested in extending DeRozan, who has a $27.8-million player option for next season. He's currently eligible for a veteran extension worth up to four years and $150 million.

DeRozan will be one of the top wing players available if he enters free agency next summer. His 3-point shooting regressed last season - he took the second-fewest attempts of his career - which is partly a function of the Spurs' system. He hit career highs in assists and rebounds while averaging 21.2 points per game in his first campaign in Texas.
