The Toronto Raptors on Opening Night in October will look vastly different than the team that played on Opening Night last year.

In a three-point win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Raptors were led in scoring by point guard Dennis Schroder. OG Anunoby chipped in another 20 points. Pascal Siakam had 15 points, 7 rebounds and six assists and was the primary defender on Karl-Anthony Towns, who shot just 8-for-25. The four players coming off the bench to fill out the rotation were Precious Achiuwa, Gary Trent Jr., Jalen McDaniels and Malachi Flynn.

None of those players are currently on the Raptors' roster.

The Raptors completely reshaped the roster

Whether it came two years too late or not, the Toronto Raptors finally faced the music and moved on from their key veterans. Across two months leading into the 2024 Trade Deadline the Raptors made four trades to complete reshape the roster, moving on from longtime core players in Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby.

A few months later, the NBA Draft and Free Agency provided a lot of clarity to the value that the Raptors sent out and received in those four deals. With that newfound knowledge, let's look back at the different trades and "Re-Grade" the trades. Did things turn out how the Raptors expected? Do the trades look better or worse with the gift of hindsight?

We start with the first domino to fall, the trade to send OG Anunoby to the New York Knicks and commit Toronto to a new young core.
