OG Anunoby is coming off another productive season. The former Indiana Hoosiers star was traded from the Toronto Raptors to the New York Knicks mid-season. He concluded the year averaging 14.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.4 steals per game while shooting 48.9% from the field and 38.2% from three-point range over 50 games.

Anunoby has the option to become a free agent this summer, with a $19.9 million player option for the 2024-25 season. Recently, SNY’s Ian Begley reported on the Knicks’ offseason, noting that the Philadelphia 76ers are interested in signing Anunoby, although Begley believes the Knicks will re-sign the seven-year veteran.

The Knicks ended the regular season with a 50-32 record, securing the second seed in the Eastern Conference. They defeated the 76ers in the first round but lost to the Indiana Pacers in the second round in seven games. Anunoby was injured during the playoffs and played only five minutes in the last five games of the series.

Anunoby, the 23rd pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, spent his first six and a half seasons with Toronto before being traded to New York. He has been a crucial role player and appears to be improving.

The 76ers, who finished seventh in the Eastern Conference with a 47-35 record, have a talented roster led by All-Stars Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey.
