1. OG Anunoby

The Knicks traded R.J. Barrett, Immanuel Quickley, and a second-round draft pick to get Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa, and Malachi Flynn at the end of December. It was a significant price for the soon-to-be free agent. Anunoby wants more than he can sign for in an extension, so the 26-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Knicks are certain they will re-sign him, but crazier things have happened in the NBA.

If Anunoby becomes available, a massive bidding war will take place. Every team wants a 6’7 wing who is an elite defender capable of sinking open 3-pointers and averaging over 15 points per game. It is a crucial role. Anunoby is one of the best in the league at it and would draw massive interest.

The Spurs would likely have to overpay, but this is a wish list. Could San Antonio convince him to spend his prime playing next to Victor Wembanyama? It is worth a shot even if he quickly re-signs with the Knicks and tries to chase a championship in the Big Apple over the Alamo.

The San Antonio Spurs will upgrade their roster this summer. Wemby is too good and wants to win now. They cannot waste another year at the bottom of the standings, so stay tuned to see how aggressive the Spurs get.
