2019 Offseason The Fireballs today traded new acquisition Tyler Davis, having just obtained him from the Hurricanes, and upcoming guard Antoine Peeler to the Stars for emerging point guard Chriz LaCruz. New GMs The`Realist and Makaveli didn't let their inexperience cloud their trigger fingers, executing a trade which will change both teams entirely. LaCruz was heartbroken at the news of leaving the Stars, but said the opportunity would give him room to grow as a player. Peeler said that joining a team with a lineup like the 'Stars was an honour, taking a parting shot at his ex-team, stating that players like Jordan Carstensen had made it an unpleasant experience for him.^^Peeler, 23, averaged 16.1ppg, 4.2rpg and 3.6apg in 54 games in 2018, while LaCruz, 22, posted numbers of 17.2ppg, 5.5rpg and 8.1apg in 56 games.
