Toronto Raptors Exercise 2019-20 Options on Siakam, Anunoby
Amid a 7-1 start to the season, the Toronto Raptors have no plans on moving on from their young pieces.
On Wednesday, the team announced that they have picked up the third-year team option on the rookie scale contract of OG Anunoby and the fourth-year option on the rookie scale contract of Pascal Siakam. The two Raptor young guns will now be guaranteed a spot on the team through the 2019-20 season. The Raptors had until October 31, 2018 to exercise their team options on both players.
Anunoby was the team’s 23rd overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft and has averaged 7.2-points in the early goings of the season. Meanwhile, Siakam has been a revelation for the Raptors after being selected late in the first round in the 2016 NBA Draft. He has averaged 6.3-points and 4.2-rebounds per game across his NBA career.
Siakam and Anunoby have both had opportunities to start for the Raptors this season.
