The Toronto Raptors are finalizing a trade to send OG Anunoby to the New York Knicks for a package including RJ Barrett, Immanuel Quickley and draft considerations, sources tell ESPN.

This is a fleece. I like their team better than ours immediately, OG is the most overrated injury prone player in the league.

Embarrassing they are throwing in draft considerations.

Depends on what's next ? IQ may have given indications he wasn't staying

Still OG isn’t good.

He’s your classically overvalued guy that can’t stay healthy.

Leon takes an L here.

Is Toronto throwing in Siakim or someone else. Utah wanted this exact trade for Donovan Mitchell that we REJECTED.

I wish we got Boucher back. I think IQ is the best player in the deal

Would rather have gotten Mitchell and started Hart at the 3. Don’t think OG is a difference maker. Toronto stinks.

This one is very questionable

Leon: Review

IQ / RJ: C-
DDV: B+
Brunson: A +
IHart: A-
Josh Hart: B (2 firsts $ contract)
Julius: B+
DRoSe: D -
Obi: F
IQ: B+
Grimes: B
Fournier: F -
Noel: F
Kemba: D -

trading IQ is a huge fail. we had enough assets to hold onto him.

I don't get this trade. I don't like this trade.

Knicks were always obsessed with OG. Wow it's bad.

always felt IQ was just as good as OG already if not better.

OG just has more size.

Agreed DM would have been a much better move. My confidence in Leon is completely gone.

I like this trade. RJ was frustratingly inefficient and we signed him for big money and recouped some of the value by trading him. I think the biggest thing no one is talking about is what our cap looks like for next year.

We should have given up an extra first rounder and kept IQ. The dude comes off the bench shooting 70%+ and also was our best net rating positive player all month. Having IQ rocking off the bench and closing games is the reason we win games.

We gave up way too much for a player who is widely overrated.

this is the kind of package that should have been used to get Mitchell or Mikal, not OG

Probably would have to give more in draft capital but I agree.

Moving post here.

It is going to take me a second to fully think this through but we needed to make a trade. RJ, Randle and Brunson did not fit. It was obvious to those paying attention. Quick is a hard pill to swallow but he was about to get paid much more than the Knicks were willing to spend I guess. We also needed to make some room in the SG SF positions. OG is going to get paid when his contract is up so how much is going to factor into this. OG is a good defender and when your two stars are JB and Randle you need as many good defenders as you can get. I kept saying 3 minus defenders in the starting lineup is not going to work. Now we are down to a more workable 2 bad defenders. Losing Quick is going to hurt our bench so lets hope the other guys we get can help with that.

I would have rather given them 3 firsts for Bridges with RJ and IQ as well. Good contract! The nets could have defended they move.

still thinking but this is much current feeling on this. Now when the trade for a real star comes and Randle is gone we either gain another good defender or trade bad ones so our defense is still good overall. We just need to get Grimes to be more agressive as a starter. Him and OG as defenders are going to be awesome to watch.
