Raptors, Celtics, Kings trade Will Solomon, Patrick O達ryant; Kings waive Mikki Moore
The Sacramento Kings today acquired Will Solomon from the Toronto Raptors and cash considerations from the Boston Celtics in a three-team trade that sent Boston’s Patrick O’Bryant to Toronto and a protected Kings’ second round pick in 2014 to Boston, according to Kings’ President of Basketball Operations Geoff Petrie. In a related move, Sacramento waived Mikki Moore. “Considering the recent roster moves made over the last 24 hours, this trade allows us to bring in an experienced guard in Will, when you consider his time in the NBA, coupled with his extensive experience playing professionally overseas,” said Petrie. “We also want to thank Mikki for his contribution and wish him the best.”
this bench warmers swapping is fine with the Raps. Solomon would never get any playing time since Roko has played so well and the addition of Marcus Banks. They also need a spare big while Hump is not ready to come back.
This is a fantastic low key move. I realize it seems chincy to people who haven't "enjoyed" Will Soloman's play...but the Raps are badly hurting for live bodies at the four and five right now. O'bryant is 7' and can move under his own power, and has a few basketball skills...this is a coup for Toronto.
And O'bryant does have some interesting physical abilites...maybe he matures into a respectable backup big.
