CINCINNATI - The Kings announced today that they have acquired 2022’s Most Improved Player center Isaiah Foreman from the Austin Rockets in exchange for Ashanti Brooks and Omari Woodley.

“Foreman is a tremendous talent that we jumped on when we saw he was available,” said the Kings GM. “He is an efficient scorer that plays a lot of defense. Isaiah will come off the bench and allow Mason to slide over to the 4 in some lineups, which will create a lot of mismatches.”

“Brooks battled for the backup point guard role but ultimately came up short. Since then we have been looking for a spot for him. Woodley is a player that has a lot of potential that we still think highly of, but was the necessary cost of obtaining Foreman.”
