Toronto Raptors star OG Anunoby has quietly emerged as one of the most sought-after names around ahead of the NBA Trade Deadline.
At just 25 years old Anunoby is already one of the league’s more athletic and versatile swingmen. In the right situation and with some help, it is easy to see a scenario where he blossoms into a full-blown difference-maker on both sides of the ball.
Because of that, a number of team have expressed interest in Anunoby.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, four teams in particular stand out when it comes to making something happen with the Toronto Raptors.

“The [Phoenix] Suns, the [New York] Knicks,” Charania said.
“They’re still teams to look at, but I would also pay attention to the [New Orleans] Pelicans [and] the [Indiana] Pacers, they’ve also registered some interest.”
The Raptors are being linked to a lot of deals right now. There is one potential one brewing between them and the Los Angeles Lakers. They have also been linked to a possible swap with the Los Angeles Clippers.
How moving Anunoby ahead of Feb. 9 fits into their plans is unclear.
The Knicks have put forth a massive offer for Anunoby, but Toronto deemed it not enough.
