BALTIMORE - When the Knights restarted trade discussions with the Bullets on the clock at Pick 12 the front office pursued the opportunity largely because many of its targets had already been selected. However when the team's last remaining target, Derrick Malone, continued the team began to consider trading back in to select him.

Portland was looking to move Pick 19 and the deal came together extremely quickly. The trade is as follows.
