NBA, NBA Draft, Toronto Raptors, Indiana Hoosiers

The Toronto Raptors selected Indiana forward OG Anunoby with the No. 23 overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft on Thursday night. 

Ford's Big Board ranking -- No. 13:  "Anunoby is an elite athlete with an NBA body, plus a 7-foot-2 wingspan. He plays hard on both ends of the floor and can defend four positions. He's a good shooter with range, has a good feel for the game and works hard. He's the prototypical 3-and-D prospect." More (Insider)

Kevin Pelton's stats and scouting ranking -- No. 7: "Anunoby is the only prospect in this year's draft projected for better than 2.0 steals per 100 plays and 2.0 blocks per 100 opponent 2-point attempts. Historically, several wings who met that criteria have outperformed their draft slot." More (Insider)

  • Long athletic wing

  • Elite athlete

  • NBA body
