Canadiens trade Nicolas Deslauriers to Ducks for draft pick

The Montreal Canadiens have traded forward Nicolas Deslauriers to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a 2020 fourth-round pick.

The deal is the second of the day for the Canadiens, who earlier sent Andrew Shaw back to the Chicago Blackhawks, as the team sheds salary ahead of the beginning of free agency on July 1.

After trading Nicolas Deslauriers to Anaheim, the #Habs now have $13,556,191 in projected cap space, with a roster of 22 (12F/8D/2G)

Worth noting that if MTL waive/assign Weise & Alzner as they did last season, they’ll clear an additonal $2.15M in space.https://t.co/lffSdAZeWP pic.twitter.com/gGQJWTCUof

The 28-year-old Deslauriers, acquired in a October 2017 trade with the Buffalo Sabres, registered 12 goals and 19 points in 106 games for the Canadiens.

The trade also means the Canadiens have a total of 12 picks in the 2020 NHL Draft, as per CapFriendly.

Report: Pacers make sign-and-trade deal with Bucks for Malcolm Brogdon

The Indiana Pacers have acquired guard Malcolm Brogdon from the Milwaukee Bucks and plan to sign him to a four-year, $85-million contract, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting.

Coming back Milwaukee’s way will be a first-round pick and a couple of future second-round picks.

Brogon was a restricted free agent, so it would seem the offer Indiana was coming down with was outside of the Bucks’ comfort level, leading to both sides agreeing to a sign-and-trade.

Brogdon was the 2017 NBA Rookie of the Year despite being a second-round pick. The 26-year-old enjoyed a career-year last season with Milwaukee, averaging 15.6 points per game and became just the eighth player to have a 50-40-90 season, shooting 50.5 per cent from the field, 42.6 per cent from three-point range and 92.8 per cent from the free-throw line.

Rubio was selected with the fifth-overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. He went on to play the first six seasons of his career in Minnesota before joining the Jazz in a July 2017 trade.
