As has been the case since the NBA Trade Deadline, the Toronto Raptors are a team that many are keeping tabs on. No one knows how they end up operating this offseason and a recent report seems to indicate that they don’t even know what they’re going to end up doing. Nevertheless, they’re certainly a team that could make quite the waves at the NBA Draft with one simple decision. If they elect to hit the reset button, they can certainly change the complexity of the draft with one move.

If the Raptors even give the impression that they’re ready to trade OG Anunoby, who would likely be the most realistic trade candidate on their roster, there’s no question that it would have a huge impact on the happenings on NBA Draft night.

In the event that the Raptors do trade Anunoby, you’d have to imagine that any package that they receive would at least include one pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. And you can bet that teams would be scrambling to put together the best possible offers for Anunoby heading into the draft.
