Colonels trades down gets #8 pick and Dozier
- By Jae Robinson, Day 1, 2024
After failing to nab a top 3 spot in the lottery the Colonels decided to trade down and send the 5th pick in this year's draft to Lightning for forward Randall Dozier, 8th pick and 2025 Scorpions 2nd rounder. The decision came from the front office as they work out some prospects in their range but didn't quite made an impression. They feel that they would get some value at #8 and Dozier would help their frontcourt hole vacated by the recently retired Simon Hartford.
