DeMar DeRozan was frustrated by the Chicago Bulls loss in the Play-In Tournament. In his three years in Chicago, DeRozan's Bulls have made the playoffs just once, getting eliminated by the Milwaukee Bucks in five games in 2022.

In each of the last two seasons, the Bulls have been eliminated by the Miami Heat in the Play-In Tournament. That's not something DeRozan wants to repeat. And it seems likely to factor into the veteran forward's upcoming free agency.

“My stance on wanting to be here is still the same but I just want to win," DeRozan said.

DeRozan also seems to know he doesn't have a lot of years left to accomplish his goal of competing for a title.

“Next time I play a game will be my 16th season," DeRozan said. "You realize the window closes for you personally. I ain’t trying to play 25 years.”
