The Reno Bighorns have acquired forward Daniel Ochefu in addition to a 2018 third-round draft choice and the returning rights to guard Spencer Dinwiddie in exchange for forward/center Will Davis, returning rights to guard Lamar Patterson and a 2018 first-round draft pick. Trade is pending successful completion of physicals.
As part of the deal, the Bighorns received Ochefu, Salt Lake City’s own 2018 third-round draft pick and the rights to Dinwiddie from Windy City, while sending rights to Patterson and Erie’s original first-round pick to Santa Cruz and sending Davis to Windy City.
