The New York Knicks have made a major trade with the Toronto Raptors.
The Knicks acquire OG Anunoby, Malachi Flynn, and Precious Achiuwa.
In exchange, they send RJ Barrett, Immanuel Quickley, and a 2024 second-round pick to the Raptors.
Anunoby is a top-notch defensive player and leads the NBA in steals this season.
The Knicks hope Anunoby will strengthen their defense.
Barrett, a Toronto native, returns home as part of the deal.
Quickley is also part of the trade and is set to become a restricted free agent.
This trade kicks off the NBA trade deadline season.
The Raptors might continue to make more trades, with Pascal Siakam's contract being of interest to other teams.
