3 Bold Trades We’d Like To See Before Deadline

New York Knicks Land OG Anunoby

Toronto Raptors Receive:  G Derrick Rose, G/F Cam Reddish, 2023 First-Round Pick (NYK), 2025 First-Round Pick (MIL via NYK), 2027 First-Round Pick (NYK) 
New York Knicks Receive: F O.G. Anunoby 

As far as predictions go, this one isn’t bold. Anunoby is one of the hottest names on the trade market, and the New York Knicks have been regularly linked to him. 

On the other hand, it is a bold move for both teams. The Knicks are surrendering three first-round picks for a player who doesn’t qualify as an offensive star. Meanwhile, the Raptors are cutting ties with a player they stole in the draft. 

It’s worth it on both sides. Anunoby may not be an offensive star, but he’s one of the best two-way players in the NBA. This is a reasonable price for him, and the Knicks should be willing to pay it. 

Meanwhile, the Raptors appear to be headed nowhere fast this season. They should be turning their attention to the future. How better to do so than to acquire three first-round picks?
