Smart for Anunoby works. Maybe add some other pieces or picks. I think I would do it.
I wouldn't do that. Smart is too valuable to our offence with his passing under Joe


Agreed.   This team recent swoon on offense seems to match up with Smart being out.

Also agreed.  Also, you don't trade your team leader when you've got the best record in the NBA.

Words that would have sounded unbelievable 15 months ago, especially with regard to a top-3 offense, but all the same defensible.

You offer Pritchard, Grant, Gallo and 2 1st rounders without batting an eye.

I would probably do it, because I think that takes us from contender to title favorite. Smart-J-J-OG-Rob to close would be the best defense in the league. Also means Memphis and NO can’t grab him. But it would hurt a little, because that’s an overpay for OG and it means we’ve used up our trade assets for the  next couple years.
An overpay? Think other teams can easily beat an offer of an 7th man, a 12th man, and a couple of first round picks. Would be dancing naked in the street if Toronto accepted that offer.

Frankly I think people are overrating OG

I don't think he is any different than Jerami Grant. I think his defense is fairly overrated. He's good on defense, but whenever I watch them, I don't see a dominate defensive player.

Jerami Grant got 1 first and a couple seconds.

Just looked at that Detroit trade and it’s a little shocking. They mostly did it for cap relief and probably to help them tank. Detroit got:

Gabriele Procida (No. 36 pick on 2022 draft)
• 2025 first-round draft pick (via Milwaukee - so most likely a late pick)
• 2025 second-round draft pick
• 2026 second-round draft pick

I'm still shocked at what he was traded for, but again if we had a trade exception big enough, we might have been able to get it done.

Detroit just really didn't want salary back.

I would not trade Smart for Anunoby.  Maybe White as a start to a package.  I think White would be a good fit for Toronto, a good fit opposite VanVleet.

Jeremy Grant is probably a good measuring stick for Anunoby.  Not quite a big 3 level player but close.  TOR should be able to beat the deal that DET got but I think the players themselves are similar in value.

Everyone wants to get in on Anunoby.

He's 3 years younger, and he's a better defender than Grant. So he's more valuable.

And he has an extra year left on his contract and makes less money.

He's also not as good offensively, and I don't necessarily think he's that much better defensively.

Sorry but curious: How is OG not as good as Grant Williams offensively?
