Re-drafting the 2017 NBA Draft

9th pick: OG Anunoby

OG Anunoby missed Toronto’s run to the NBA title. As the Raptors impressed in 2019/20, however, Anunoby became one of their most important players. Toronto have a lot of very good individual defenders, but the former 23rd overall pick might be the best of the bunch.

Drafted as a defensive specialist, it is the other end of the floor where Anunoby has developed most drastically, hitting 38% of his threes this season and improving as a playmaker. He’s gradually becoming a greater threat off the dribble.

Anunoby is already the perfect three-and-d guy. His floor might be Robert Covington. Who knows what his ceiling is as his offensive game gets more polished.
