Scorpions Send Douglas to Toronto
- By Michael Miller, Day 43, 2022
LAS VEGAS - The Scorpions have agreed to send SG/PG Rickey Douglas to the Toronto Huskies for the Huskies 2023 1st round pick.
According to team sources, although Las Vegas valued Douglas as a clutch combo guard off the bench, the team also prioritized getting under the $95 million Cap Penalty Threshold, preserving their flexibility for potential future trades as well as their MLE for the 2023 offseason. The play of reserve guards Tex Ireland and Jason Barnett made the Scorpions comfortable with this financial move.
A press conference with management has been scheduled for 2 PM local time for further discussion and details.
