Per Evan Massey, don't know if this is a real thing. Man, if so, Brad needs to wake the heck up and get on the phone. OG would be great here!!

Surprising, if true.  Would have thought that Anunoby is a guy that Toronto wants to keep for their rebuild.  And for Myles Turner?

If this happens, I'd be really curious to see if picks head in either direction.  That said, I think that Turner is a better fit in Toronto than Indy, and it might be that OG is better in Indy than Toronto, so this could be one of the rare times good players get traded in both directions that improves both teams.

But OG fits the Fournier TPE, and I've wanted him since his freshman year at Indiana, so if there's any way for Boston to get him...

From what I've read, Massey is not regarded as a guy with legit sources.  You can safely throw this out, I think.  Even if it's real...

"Yo, can we have OG for Turner?"
"No."

...is technically a discussion.  Nothing to see here, most likely.

For Anunoby? In a heartbeat! I bet the Raps would never do it though.

OG for Sabonis seems a fairer trade in my book.

Sabonis is a two-time All-Star.  He's not worth Sabonis, and I say this as an OG fan.  Sabonis is a better player and generally more healthy to boot.  He should be worth more than Turner, however.

I love Myles Turner for Toronto. I got excited for the Raptors were going after him earlier today. Toronto is desperate for a legitimate center to round out their team and could quickly become a 50-55 win team with Turner + filling out their bench with better talent in FA next summer.

I am disappointed to see OG Anunoby is the piece they are dangling however. I love his game. I don't know what I expected them to give up. I was hoping a load of picks and expirings to keep that Raptors core together because I love what they are putting together over there. Alas, it appears not.

Anunoby would be a very good pickup for Indiana. A two way forward like him is just what their team needs. He is a better PF than Turner and fits their team better next to Sabonis than Turner does.

I would do that deal too.

Rim runners / defensive centers are easier to replace than high level glue guys like OG Anunoby. Anunoby would be an awesome PF to have on this team next to Tatum & Jaylen onthe wings.

Is he actually a PF?  He is list at 6'-7", 232 lbs.  I am not sure that he is the answer to our PF issue.

As for trading him for Turner, seems Indy wins that by a mile.

Yes, he’s a PF.  He’s strong and has a 7’2” wingspan.  Standing reach is 8’11”.5, or 1/2 inch shorter than Bam Adebayo’s.

This was what I was thinking too .  I d rather have Sabonis > OG > Turner
