Media The Ringer reported on the afternoon of the 24th (Korean time) that Toronto wants 2-3 unprotected first round nomination rights in exchange for the Siakam and Anunobi trade.

Anunobi was active as a key rotation member at the time of Toronto’s victory, and rose to the starting lineup from the 20-21 season. Plus, he’s been a key part of Toronto’s defense this season.
