OG Anunoby - Toronto Raptors

Where do you think they could have gotten more? I'm honestly surprised they got an all-star back in Derozan. Figured most teams would shy away from providing a star just because Kawhi has been so outspoken about free agency after this year and wanting to go to the Lakers. Its a big gamble for Toronto. 

I personally would value a Hart, Kuzma, and picks trade over what the Raptors gave up. Same with anything from the Clippers and Sixers.

The Spurs weren't going to trade him to the Lakers. They are ultimately hoping he stays out East so they don't have to face him every year unless they were blown away by an offer. Also, the Lakers pretty much said Kuzma was off limits. I'm not sure what the Clip or Sixers could have offered. Sixers obviously weren't going to trade Simmons or Embid and Fultz seems like a huge risk this early in the game. Clip seemed like they had a disfunctional roster although just invested in two 1st rounders this year.

While that's all true I would rather have younger prospects and picks than a semi-star in Derozan. Spurs can't make the Finals with him still in his prime as their best player

I agree it's how the Celtics got so good although that trade was incredibly lopsided from the onset. Spurs probably could have made this deal if Kawai hadn't been so outspoken about going to the Lakers after this upcoming season. Teams don't want to sacrifice future for a one year rental especially when Golden State will still be better than them even with Kawai (Boston being the only exception here). 

And yes, Spurs will have to add another star when most hit free agency next season. They at least are a more attractive option with Derozan there versus getting basically nothing for Kawai.

Interview today of OG:
Question: "If you could have any exotic animal as a pet, which one would you choose?"
OG: "A racoon. People don't have those, so I want one."
 
Keep being you, OG Anunoby.
