No. 2: Immanuel Quickley

If Jordan Nwora was the throw-in for a trade, Immanuel Quickley was the centerpiece for his. The New York Knicks won the bidding for OG Anunoby because they sent Quickley, a fourth-year guard waiting to blossom when given the keys.

Nothing about the situation that Quickley entered into was set up for him to succeed, from the resetting of the roster to the myriad of injuries that beset the roster in waves down the stretch of the season. If Quickley had flopped in Toronto much of the blame would have rested somewhere other than on his shoulders.

Quickley didn't flop, however. He increased his 3-point volume and drained 39.5 percent of his attempts, many of them off-the-dribble. His playmaking was on full display as he averaged a career-best 6.8 assists per game. His 2-point finishing took a hit, but given the lack of spacing the Raptors were often working with that is hardly a surprising development.

On top of earning a new contract, Quickley has plenty of leverage in that the Raptors all-but-banked on re-signing Quickley when they traded for him. They would have a lot of egg on their face if they walked away because of a few million dollars. That makes it likely he signs for a substantial amount on a new deal, even if it checks in a touch lower than the max.

Prediction: 4-years, $135 million / 5-years, $180 million
