Austin Acquires SG/SF Turner

  • By Zach Podedworny, Day 1, 2023

AUSTIN - Austin acquires Turner coming into his last year of his contract to shore some frontcourt depth issues, but also as a security blanket in case SG Quinton Rice signs elsewhere. This move also allows PF/SF Zach McCray to move to the PF position if needed. With plenty of cap space, the Rockets plan on making a splash on a big free agent this offseason, but the priority remains to re-sign SG Quinton Rice and C Isaiah Foreman to long term deals.

Austin sends the 2023 Bullets 2nd (Pick #32) to the Kings for SG/SF Xavier Turner.
