Colonels Moves Wilkinson to Fireballs
- By Jae Robinson, Day 1, 2023
LOUISVILLE - The Colonels agreed to send SG Jamal Wilkinson to the Fireballs for SF Garret Cue, C Evan Dupont, SG JP Marquardt and 2 future 2nd round draft picks 2025 and 2027 respectively. After talking with a few GMs the Colonels brass decided to take the Fireballs deal that will address their shortage of players while adding decent depth in Cue, Dupont and Marquardt plus getting 2 future picks albeit 2nd round is still a good haul.
"We wish Jamal the best in Los Angeles and we thank him for his services in Louisville. This is a necessary move for us and we look forward for what these young guys can bring to the table." GM Jae Robinson said to the media.
The trade passed league rules as salaries matched 50% rule. Shedding a good amount in Colonels cap as well.
