1. OG Anunoby
The Raptors could be the next team to blow up their roster and head into a total rebuild. They missed the playoffs last season and just lost Fred VanVleet in free agency. Toronto re-signed Jakob Poeltl, but has not extended their core and decisions are coming. Pascal Siakam and Gary Trent Jr. are in the final year of their contracts, and OG Anunoby has a player option for 2024-25. The Raptors need to lock them up long-term or explore their trade market.
Anunoby is a 6’7 wing who led the NBA in steals last season. He made second team All-Defense and offers a similar offensive skill set to Harrison Barnes. OG can space the floor, handle the ball, and score 15-plus points per game. He won’t lead the team in scoring or be their top option, but the Kings do not need him to be. They have De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis to handle that pressure.
OG Anunoby could be the missing piece for the Kings, but he won’t come cheap. Masai Uriji always drives a hard bargain in trades and has turned down multiple offers for the 6’7 wing in the past. If the Raptors commit to a rebuild, Anunoby should be traded, and the Kings can offer a massive package if necessary.
The Sacramento Kings plan on contending this season. Can they make it a reality? Stay tuned to find out.
