The Toronto Raptors have what is known as a “good problem to have” on their hands. After drafting the 2021-22 NBA Rookie of the Year in Scottie Barnes, the Raptors have swiftly constructed an exciting young core that proved to be competitive far quicker than initially expected.

Fans and pundits alike failed to foresee Toronto’s sudden return to regular-season dominance, and the Raptors overcame that doubt to the tune of a 48-34 record and a fifth-place finish in the Eastern Conference.

With the roster way ahead of the curve in terms of their rebuild, General Manager Masai Ujiri has to start scheming ways to improve the team and its title chances.

Aside from an unexpectedly accelerated development, another “good problem” that the Raptors have is an overabundance of talent in a single arena with a lack of balanced dispersion within the roster.

Between Gary Trent Jr., OG Anunoby, Scottie Barnes, Pascal Siakam, and Precious Achiuwa, Toronto has five high-level starters who are all best suited to play shooting guard, small forward, or power forward.

With that in mind, perhaps it’s time for Ujiri to consolidate his surplus of talent on the wings and at forward to address some of his roster’s needs.

The Raptors were reportedly in search of a center last season — a glaring hole that presented itself even deeper in the playoffs against the Philadelphia 76ers and Joel Embiid — and OG Anunoby has been a hot name on the trade wire.
