Despite his calm demeanor on the field, the commercial noises around OG Anunoby still mount.

Just a day after the Toronto Star reported, the Toronto Raptors were reported to have been offered three first-round picks for the 25-year-old forward, another rumor about a possible departure from Anunobi’s only team in the NBA.

Longtime Toronto host Bob McCown said Tuesday that his podcast Anunnobi doesn’t want to be a bird anymore.

“I spoke with an NBA insider yesterday on the phone,” McCown said. “By chance, he called me. It’s a guy I’ve known for several years. He told me Anunubi wants to leave Toronto. Anunubi wants to leave. He wants to be traded. I don’t know if they’re trying to do something. It’s a name that’s been around for a while.”

This isn’t the first time rumors have circulated about Anunobi’s unhappiness in Toronto. Jake Fisher, then working for Bleacher Report, stated in May that the forward was “unhappy with his role” and his teams were going around hoping to get the hapless alleged player off.

Anunobi told TSN’s Kate Bernice in November that he was “surprised” to hear the news and admitted there was “nothing he could do” to get his name in the headlines.

Mid-career Anunobi averaged 17.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game while shooting 36.4 percent from three-point range on over five attempts per game. In addition, he leads the league in steals (90) and steals per game (2.1).

The Indiana University product is under contract for at least one additional season and has a player option for the 2024-25 season. He earned just over $17 million this year.

Given the Raptors’ poor showing this season, there has been a lot of speculation about selling to Toronto at the deadline, with Anunobi among the main favorites due to the supposedly high return he would receive in any trade.

The NBA trade deadline is February 9th.
