Huskies Move on from Okwarabizie

TORONTO -
The experiment in Toronto is over. SG Derek Okwarabizie is heading to the Austin Rockets in exchange for rookie PG DeMarcus Jones. Okwarabizie was selected with the 27th pick of the 2022 draft by the Huskies. Okwarabizie found it difficult to break into the Huskies lineup in his rookie year, and did not make a significant impression thus far this season.

Coming back in exchange is rookie PG DeMarcus Jones. Jones was said to be a favourite of the scouting staff during the draft this year. The team likes his athleticism and his distribution skills on offense. Jones played his college ball at Kansas and spent his freshman year alongside current Husky Trayvon Gibbs.
