OG Anunoby Negotiations
“Masai! Haven’t talked in a while, how are things?” you say.
“Didn’t you just call about Pascal?” Masai replies.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I would like to discuss OG Anunoby.”
“Ah, trying to finally fix that TJ Leaf mistake of yours, eh?”
You hang up.
Masai calls back.
“What? Can’t take a joke?”
“Don’t bring up that name, man. Not cool.”
“Alright, well you know we’ve already got an offer for 3 first-round picks for OG. Are you going to top that?”
“We both know those Knicks picks you got offered may not ever convey to firsts. How about I offer you 3 firsts, all conveying this year?”
“Yeah, it just doesn’t quite move the needle for me. Instead of those picks, I’d rather get unprotected future picks from you.”
You text a picture to Ujiri.
“You know I could just wait until OG is a free agent in a couple summers. Seems like he may be interested.”
“Is it my turn to hang up now? This is really how you’re going to play it.”
“Alright, alright. I had to get you back a little bit. How about this?”
- 2023 Pacers 1st unprotected
- 2025 Pacers 1st unprotected
- Chris Duarte
- Goga Bitadze
“I’d really like to get Nembhard but I know you probably aren’t letting him go in this deal. You know what. You add in the Celtics pick this year and it’s a deal.”
