OAKLAND - Tritons trade Evan Coleman to the Blizzards for draft picks
After two and a half years, the Tritons have traded promising young point guard, Evan Coleman, to the Blizzards for their 2025 and 2026 second round picks. Coleman started the majority of the Tritons' games, however, the acquisition of Jack Donlon and growth of Nikica Jankovic led him to voice frustrations over the situation.
Reggie Cross: " Evan Coleman played a great part in Oakland's success over these past years, but apparently he felt uncomfortable with the healthy point guard competition within the team concept. As a result, we felt it would be best to let him pursue his own desires at the Minneapolis where he can hopefully show the true potential that led him to become the 28th pick in the draft in 2021. We hope he finds the success and tranquility he's looking for."
Jack Donlon will now start with Jankovic putting in significant minutes.
