Raptors pick up options on Siakam, Anunoby; decline Richardson

Publish date:

The Toronto Raptors have exercised their team options on forwards Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby, the team announced in a new release.

They have also declined the option on swingman Malachi Richardson, according to a report from Michael Scotto of The Athletic.

Siakam was the No. 27 overall pick in the 2017 draft. He has started seven of the Raptors’ first eight games and is averaging 10.9 points and 7.9 rebounds.

Anunoby isn't putting up great numbers but is developing into a strong wing defender and displaying an ability to hit shots from the perimeter. He was drafted by the Raptors with the 23rd overall pick in 2017.

Richardson has made five appearances this season and is averaging less than two points. He appeared in one game with the Raptors last season.
