Brooklyn Nets bought forward Royce O'Neal from Utah Jazz in exchange for Thursday's first draft.

Jazz will receive the first round pick of 2023. This is the lower of the two opening round picks Nets will make next year. The Nets own the Philadelphia 76ers' first round picks, and the Houston Rockets have the right to trade Brooklyn for the first round players through the James Harden trade.

According to ESPN, news arrives the same day it was reported that Nets star forward Kevin Durant requested a deal with Phoenix Suns or the Miami Heat Durant's preferred destination.

O'Neill, 29, has played in all 148 jazz games in the last two seasons. He averaged 7.4 points and 4.8 rebounds in 31.2 minutes last season, and averaged 6.2 points and 4.8 rebounds in 370 career games (230 starts) in five seasons.
