Breaking: OG Anunoby Signs 4-year $72M Extension

1 min read

OG Anunoby and the Raptors have agreed to a 4-year $72M contract extension, with a player option for the 2024-25 season.

Many thought that Anunoby’s market was starting to balloon north of 20M with recent signings of lower potential and impact players (Marcus Morris, Luke Kennard, Jerami Grant, Kyle Kuzma), but Anunoby and the Raptors have come together on a middle ground that sees Anunoby under contract through the 2023-24 season at the very least. This deal skews very team friendly (as did VanVleet’s) and should be considered a major win for the Raptors. Even though Anunoby has been a very low usage player, the market for players of his ilk is laden with big offer sheets – especially ahead of an offseason where a lot of teams have cap space, and a shrinking number of marquee free agents.

A fan favourite gets paid, and Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster have once again shown their prowess as executives. Big win today for Raptors fans.

Have a blessed day.
