Toronto Raptors, Part 1
In 2009, DeRozan decided to forgo his next three years of USC eligibility to enter the NBA draft; he was ultimately selected by the Toronto Raptors. He had one of the best games of his early professional career on New Year's Eve in 2010, when he scored a then-career high of 37 points against the Houston Rockets. DeRozan went on to match that high in November of 2012 and November of 2013. In January of 2014, he bested the number with 40 points against the Dallas Mavericks; moreover, he was selected to the NBA All-Star Game. More success came in March, when DeRozan led the Raptors to their first playoff appearance in six years.

DeRozan continued his success with the Raptors in the 2015-16 season, helping the team achieve a franchise-record 11-game winning streak.
