Both of your options are poor. For one thing, neither sounds quite right to my ear (native English speaker). For another, you don’t know that either unwillingness or lack of interest is to blame here, so suggesting either doesn’t really make sense.
Instead, something like
Why did you quit the team?
would be more accurate for asking what you want to ask. It would also be entirely appropriate in some contexts—for example, if you were his former boss, since it would be your business to know the answer. (This doesn’t mean you’ll get it, of course, but someone in that position is at least justified in asking.)
In other contexts, the answer to this question isn’t necessarily your business, and thus the question here may be too blunt. If this is too blunt, then English has a lot of ways of softening questions like this (since native English speakers are notoriously sensitive about this kind of thing, at least compared to the speakers of some other languages who are far more comfortable being blunt).
For example, you can introduce the question by suggesting that you know you’re possibly probing beyond what is strictly your business. This invites the other to refuse to answer if they are uncomfortable doing so, as you have already admitted that they are entitled to do so. Examples,
If you don’t mind my asking, why did you quit the team?
Sorry if this is too personal, but I am curious why you quit the team.
I know it’s really none of my business, but can I just ask, why did you quit the team?
And so on in endless variations and combinations.
You can also try hinting that you would be interested in this information, and see if the other volunteers it. This is often known (pejoratively) in English as “beating around the bush,” and can be seen in a negative light, making you look foolish and/or annoying (particularly if you keep trying when the other does not volunteer the information). However, in sensitive situations, it can be the best approach. The key is to accept ahead of time that you will most likely not get an answer this way, and you cannot really follow up such an approach to try to press for more. The whole point is that the other person can pretend to have not gotten the hint if they don’t want to answer—and to make that plausible, it generally has to be possible that they didn’t get the hint. The advantage is that it’s even softer than the previous.
I never heard what happened when you left...
Have you been up to anything interesting since you left the team?
And so on, referencing events in the right timeframe and hoping the other expands on what you already know with the details you are looking for.
