OG is getting paid.

The Toronto Raptors have locked up a big part of their future, signing forward OG Anunoby to a four-year, $72 million contract extension according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

“OG is the epitome of the skilled, powerful, determined player we want in our organization long-term. Remember, he doesn’t shoot to miss,” general manager Bobby Webster said in a media release. “We’re really pleased that OG will be with us for seasons to come.”

The Raptors’ first-round pick (23rd overall) in the 2017 NBA Draft, Anunoby is coming off a breakout season, posting career highs in points (10.6), rebounds (5.3), assists (1.6), and steals (1.4) per game.

Anunoby’s new contract will kick in for the 2021-22 season, as he has one more year remaining on a deal paying him $3.87 million.

The Raptors begin the 2020-21 season against the New Orleans Pelicans Wednesday in Tampa Bay.
