Despite the complicated legal dispute with the Toronto Raptors, the Knicks are still hoping for a trade for OG Anunoby.
The Knicks also remain interested in trading for Raptors forward OG Anunoby, league sources told HoopsHype. Last season, Knicks forward RJ Barrett surfaced in those brief trade inquiries, but nothing materialized “That’s likely to remain the case unless New York sweeps Toronto away with enough compensation for a first-round pick and perhaps another young asset,” Scotto wrote.
A career 37.5% 3-point shooter, Anunoby projects as the perfect 3-and-D wing for the Knicks. The 26-year-old Anunoby was named to the NBA’s All-Defensive Second Team last season after leading the league in steals.
