TRADE: Deledio heads to GWS, not Geelong #AFLTrades

At the start of the trade period one of the bigger “bombshells” was around Brett Deledio’s potential move to Kardinia Park. After going through several permutations, the deal to get Deledio to Geelong appeared dead.

And then GWS stepped in, and used Geelong’s pick for them.

HPN is still confirming the details of this trade, but we believe that the 2017 1st rounder involved is the Geelong pick. Regardless of specifics, Richmond got a great deal for their aging star, and GWS got another elite player that will help them win now.

Richmond are entering a semi-rebuild phase, and it is unlikely that Deledio will be there to help them win in the future. But GWS are already there, and Deledio will step in right away and contribute.

Verdict: A big Richmond win, but if Deledio helps the Giants win a flag it will be just the cost of doing business.
