LAS VEGAS - It took two tries, but Las Vegas secured its goal of shedding salary and acquiring an asset prior to the expansion draft.

The Scorpions trade SG/SF Lorenzen Eyles to the Austin Rockets for C Dwight Hill and the Rockets 2023 1st round pick. Eyles was likely to be left unprotected in the upcoming expansion draft.
