OG Anunoby says he doesn't want out of Toronto: 'It is what it is'

- by

If there was anything to rumours that he wants out of Toronto? Anunoby: “No. It is what it is.” Is he happy with his role in the Raptors offence? Anunoby: “Just trying to get better every day. Some games you get a bigger role. It’s the same for everyone. It changes game to game.” If it bothered him that his name was featuring fairly prominently in trade rumours leading up to the deadline: Anunoby: “No, it doesn’t bother me. What can I do about it? I didn’t tell anyone to do that story or say whatever. It’s not my choice for whatever is going on to be going on. I can’t control it, so what’s the point of being mad about it?

Achiuwa remains in for Anunoby. For the Suns: Chris Paul, Mikal Bridges, Cam Johnson, Torrey Craig and Deandre Ayton. – 8:35 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Whatever assumption you’re making based on O.G. Anunoby’s words (HA!) or injury, I would suggest you not make that assumption. – 7:59 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Left wrist sprain for O.G. Anunoby will keep him out the rest of this Raptors road trip, will be evaluated back in Toronto first of next week
Please read nothing more into it than that. Thank you – 7:30 PM

Raptors say O.G. Anunoby is out for the rest of the trip – at Phoenix, Utah, Houston and Memphis. Imaging on left wrist has been done and doctors will check on him again in Toronto. – 7:30 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
As someone who has covered O.G. Anunoby for six season, let me say it’s best to take him literally and not assign too much under-the-surface meaning to what he says. – 7:01 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
I had a nice – tho brief😂 — conversation with O.G. Anunoby and his future in Toronto, and then he got hurt and now Precious Achiuwa is rolling and man, the Raptors have some decisions to make: sportsnet.ca/nba/article/if…5:53 PM

O.G. Anunoby (left wrist sprain) OUT tonight at #Suns after hard fall Friday at #Warriors.
Sat Saturday at #Blazers.
Name has crept back up in trade talks as it was in the summer.
Suns still looking to move Jae Crowder. #Bucks appear to be frontrunners. Trade deadline Feb. 9. pic.twitter.com/8cJRD61mHJ3:59 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Does Anunoby want out? I asked the Toronto forward about that, and also looked at how the recent emergence of Precious Achiuwa could help the Raptors make a decision on Anunoby and the other members of their core: sportsnet.ca/nba/article/if…3:24 PM

Three random thoughts on the Grizzlies I had this morning so I wrote about them in the newsletter.
– Is OG Anunoby ~ the ~ Grizz trade you imagined?
– I really have no idea how Danny Green will look. Grizz may not either.

More on this storyline

For what it’s worth, when I’ve asked around the sense I get is that Anunoby has no issue playing in Toronto, but as a young player just entering his prime with a significant contract opportunity on the horizon, would he like to have a more varied role in a Raptors offence where Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet and increasingly, Scottie Barnes, get the most touches? It’s not hard to imagine that. -via SportsNet / January 31, 2023
The Knicks and Suns are among the interested suitors in Raptors forward O.G. Anunoby, sources say. New York has shown a willingness to offer multiple first-round picks for Anunoby, according to those sources. The Suns, meanwhile, have control of all of their first-round picks — eight in total —through 2030. SNY first reported the Knicks’ interest last week. -via The Athletic / January 30, 2023
