The Toronto Raptors keep preparing for the future, and they have secured yet another key player to stay with the franchise for the next couple of seasons.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Raptors forward OG Anunoby has signed a four-year, $72 million contract, including a player option for 2024-2025.

Anunoby joins Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam as the players from Toronto who have committed to stay with the team long-term.
The 23 year-old had a career-year last season with the Raptors, averaging with 10.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. This was also his first full-year as a starter.
OG, who was picked by the Raptors with the 23rd overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, has become a vital piece for Nick Nurse's team, especially for his ability to play both ends of the floor.
The UK-Native is a clear example of motivation for many players. Anunoby, who was the 294th ranked high school senior, went to Indiana and entered the draft with a torn ACL.
