Chicago all-in, trades for Marcus Wright
- By Austin Simpson, Day 121, 2022
The Chicago Jailbirds have agreed to trade Lucas White ($1.5M), Kyle Vanderpool ($1M), Justin Rooks ($1M), their 2023 1st round pick and their 2024 2nd round pick to the St. Louis Skyhawks for PF Marcus Wright ($14.5M)
This deal pushes Chicago's salary near $95 million but nets a solid power forward in Wright. Chicago has been evaluating trade options since the recent trade sending Dameon Clarke out for Pace LaGarde and the Skyhawks have become a nice trade partner. The Jailbirds hope this trade pushes them into serious championship contention.
