New York - A trade talk that's been in the works for a little over a month now has finally come to fruition. The deal will send newly drafted Terrance Miner, 5 year Swingman Lyman Young, and a conditional first round 2021 1st round pick, and a 2022 2nd round pick to the Kentucky Stallions for the newly acquired services of C/PF John Esposito. We caught up with the Swing GM to see what brought this deal into light, and what it is they see in the new acquisition  and how he thinks this will help the Swing take the next step.

            " Espo fits with our long term goals and I know he's going to be an excellent fit with what we are trying to accomplish here in Manhattan. We're not getting any younger with our big men, and even though Pok is having his best shooting season of his career. He hasn't discovered the fountain of youth and he's aging terribly," he joked. "This could be Pok's final contract of his career, and same goes with Askew. This deal gives us a fantastic player at a price that won't render our ability to maybe snag a couple key ingredients for our future. This move is obviously a long term solution to a team that's kind of rebuilding while still trying to win now. "

       All in all we the Swing are taking a huge risk trading a possible lottery pick for the services of solid role player. This deal could have huge Implications on the future success of the swing. If Manhattan tanks the rest of the season and were to move them into a top 10 pick and/or lottery contention, they could have possibly given up a future star to play along side Stanley, Mckelvey, and Butterfield. So until the end of the season, we really don't know how well this trade will work out for either team, so I guess we will wait to see how things ultimately pan out. All we can do is wait and see....
