Jacks Acquire More Picks
- By Tim Wallis, Day 1, 2021
PORTLAND - The Lumberjacks have completed their second trade, sending next year's first rounder (set at #18) to the Skyhawks for picks 23 and 53 in the upcoming 2021 draft. The trade gives Portland seven picks in the draft: 8, 23, 38, 44, 53, 58 and 63.
GM Wallis: "We felt that with an empty roster, draft picks are worth more to us this season than next when we expect to be more focused on filling needs through free agency. We believe we can pick up at least two starters with the picks we have now, and there are many players expected to be available late in the draft that we think can be quality role players in this league."
