2. SF OG Anunoby
The Raptors have both Anunoby and Gary Trent Jr. scheduled to hit the open market as free agents after this season, and there is an argument to be made for keeping Trent over him. If the Raptors want the most in return for one of these two in a trade, the choice is plain and obvious.
Anunoby has been his usual excellent self on the defensive end, making Anthony Edwards and Zach LaVine look like rookies while the team let Tyrese Maxey run wild in his absence. His shooting has been streaky, and that might put a hard limit on his value in trace situations.
OG Anunoby could get the Toronto Raptors important assets.
Ujiri’s biggest flaw as an executive is his propensity to be overly loyal to the players he drafted. Wanting first-round picks for Anunoby is fine, but refusing some big offers might end up forcing Ujiri to send away one of his golden boys for relative pennies on the dollar.
Even a weaker return for Anunby would be enough to give Toronto the shot in the arm they need to become a team that can actually do some damage in the future. Teams would trip over themselves to bring in a quality shooter with some of the best on-ball defense in the league.
