In a noteworthy development, Jordan Nwora, a former All-Western New York player for The Park School of Buffalo, has been traded to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. This trade is part of a larger deal that involved the Indiana Pacers acquiring All-Star forward Pascal Siakam. Nwora, currently in his fourth NBA season, has been a consistent presence on the Pacers’ roster this season, averaging 5.2 points in 10.2 minutes over 18 games. Prior to this stint with the Pacers, he had joined the team following a trade from his original team, where he secured a championship in his rookie season.

Trade Details:
The package for Siakam included Nwora, starting guard Bruce Brown, and three first-round draft picks. Additionally, the New Orleans Pelicans played a role in facilitating this trade by sending Kira Lewis to Toronto, helping alleviate the Raptors’ luxury tax burden.
