Per the immortal Adrian Wojnarowski, the Raptors have traded Xavier Thames to the Brooklyn Nets.
Particulars aren’t immediately available, but it’s after midnight here and I’m going to head to bed. Presumably some cash or a future 2nd rounder will be heading their way. What it means for now is that the Raptors’ draft haul will include 2 players, instead of 3 – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing and allows them to work out plenty of potential second-rounders in summer league if they so choose, rather than simply commit to one tonight.
That’s all from us here at RR tonight – happy draft, everyone. Dream of Brazilian Kevin Durants.
