Toros Make Trade Hours Before Trade Deadline

Just as Moses Ehambe was beginning to adjust and produce quality numbers for the Austin Toros the team decided to trade him to the Iowa Energy for guard Kyle Weaver.

Ehambe’s numbers in the month of February were mediocre at best (he scored a month high eight points against New Mexico on the 24th). However, in his last two games this week wearing silver and black, Ehambe was clutch and carried the team coming off the bench. In Wednesday’s game he led all in scoring with 37 points (9-11 from beyond the arc). The next night his ability to shoot long jumpers continued as he was 5-5 for 3-point shots and contributed 21 points.

So what are the Toros getting out of the trade?

NBA experience.

Kyle Weaver was traded from the Charlotte Bobcats to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008. During the 2008-2009 season Weaver appeared in 56 games, 19 of which he started (5.3 ppg, 2.4 rebs in 20.8 minutes of action). The next season he appeared in 12 games for the Thunder.

Weaver appeared in 21 games this season for the Iowa Energy, 20 of which he started. He’s currently averaging 16.6 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 3.5 assists a game.

Weaver will make his first appearance for the Toros during Saturday’s matinee game against the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
