Melo, Green, DeRozan aren't worried about Zika

Team USA players Carmelo Anthony, Draymond Green and DeMar DeRozan say concerns over Zika weren't enough to keep them from playing in the Olympics.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Raptors G DeMar DeRozan on heading into free agency: "That's always been mutual (my feelings for Toronto). Since I've been there, the level of respect that I have for that team and that organization and that whole country and vice versa. It's my first time going into this -- really being a free agent and understanding how things work -- so I'm just taking it day by day, honestly. And once Friday (July 1) comes I'll have a different outlook on everything. But Friday and this weekend will say a lot."

What you need to know about Siakam

"His rebounding ability is elite. He plays hard and is both a great athlete and physical. He's old for his class and his basketball IQ can be a little low." -- NBA Insider Chad Ford. Stats, analysis, projections on Siakam

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

The Raptors select New Mexico's Pascal Siakam with the No. 27 pick. Clearly that Skal info to the Raptors was a smoke screen. Like Siakam. He's bouncy. Plays hard. Good shot blocker. A bit raw. But has the toughness Masai Ujiri likes.
