1. OG Anunoby ($18.6 million)
Anunoby is not only one of the more economical contracts on the Raptors, but it would not be an exaggeration to say that he might have the best veteran contract of any player in the Eastern Conference. Given his two-way skill, he has clearly outperformed his most recent contract.
Anunoby’s defensive skills were well-known to all before the last few years (even though he was finally recognized as an All-Defensive team performer), but his shooting and gradual improvement on the offensive end is what makes his contract even more of a steal for Ujiri.
OG Anunoby is a key part of the Toronto Raptors.
Anunoby is a free agent at the end of this season, and his new contract could be worth as much as $116 million over four years. With how much Toronto loves what he brings to the table, giving him a $11 million per season raise will likely be a river they will be willing to ford.
If Anunoby can fix some of the issues he has had as a ball-handler and creator of half-court offense, he could be well on his way to making that more expensive deal also look like a bargain. As it stands right now, Anunoby remains one of the more underpaid players in the game.
