ESPN’s final mock draft has Dyson Daniels of the G League Ignite going to the Blazers, though much can change over the next few hours.
This isn’t the first time that Anunoby’s name has come up in trade rumours this offseason.
Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer suggested that Anunoby might be unhappy with his role with the Raptors, with rival executives interested in acquiring him, including a link to the Blazers, who are likely to be active buyers this offseason.
The draft begins tonight at 8 pm ET, and will be shown on Sportsnet and TSN.
