Forward OG Anunoby and the Toronto Raptors have agreed to a multi-year contract extension.
The new contract, which kicks in for the 2021-22 season, is reportedly a four-year, $72 million US deal including a player-option for the 2024-2025 campaign, according to multiple reports.
Anunoby could have been a restricted free agent next summer, and the Raptors had until Monday to get a new deal done. The contract kicks in for the 2021-22 season.
The six-foot-eight Anunoby averaged career highs of 10.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 29.9 minutes in 69 games last season, starting in 68 of those.
