Chicago - Younger and More Athletic

  • By Austin Simpson, Day 1, 2023

Chicago has agreed to a trade sending Wesley Sherman to the Houston Lightning for DeAngelo Tarver, Kane Thomas, and Tyrone Wheeler.

The Jailbirds GM went on the record to say "We were excited to have Sherman help anchor our defense but ultimately knew we needed to fill our starting SG position. The offers were few and far between and frankly disappointing. We knew we had to do something different and that's when we decided to move Jason Cheaney back to the SG position and look for an athletic PG. DeAngelo Tarver fits the Jailbirds perfectly and will step into the starting position right away."

Kane Thomas and Tyrone Wheeler were add ins to make the salary work on the deal. An interesting scenario where the Jailbirds now have 20 players and need to trim down to 15 after training camp. The position battle for backup SG and SF for the Jailbirds will leave some players unhappy and unemployed.

Wesley Sherman $10,000,000 / $10,000,000 (PO)


DeAngelo Tarver $3,200,000
Kane Thomas $1,000,000, $1,000,000 (TO)
Tyrone Wheeler $1,000,000, $1,000,000 (TO)
