The primary mechanism the San Antonio Spurs have to add a difference-making talent to their roster this offseason is the No. 9 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.
With a variety of intriguing prospects that will likely be available on the board by the time the Spurs are on the clock, simply making a selection with the No. 9 pick makes sense. However, potential trade targets are worth considering, too.
According to Matt Moore of Action Network, OG Anunoby could be a potential name to watch in trade speculation this offseason — alluding to the Toronto Raptors’ need to upgrade the roster despite limited options.
“Along those lines, don’t be surprised to see more smoke around a potential trade for OG Anunoby. The Raptors with a re-signed Masai Ujiri like their core, but ultimately upgrades will have to come with the inclusion of one of Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, or Anunoby, and Rookie of the Year Scottie Barnes’ emergence opens the door for gauging Anunoby’s value on the market.”
