Raptors Acquire Patrick O’Bryant

The Toronto Raptors announced Thursday they have acquired centre Patrick O’Bryant in a three-team trade that sent guard Will Solomon to the Sacramento Kings. Additionally, Sacramento receives cash considerations from Boston, while Boston receives a conditional second-round pick in 2014 from Sacramento.

O’Bryant, selected ninth overall by the Golden State Warriors in the 2006 NBA Draft, has averaged 1.6 points, 1.3 rebounds and 4.9 minutes in 66 games over three seasons with Golden State and Boston. In 26 games this season, O’Bryant, 22, is averaging 1.5 points and 1.3 rebounds. O’Bryant signed as a free agent with Boston on July 16, 2008.

During two seasons at Bradley University, O’Bryant averaged 11.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.83 blocks in 52 games (47 starts). He appeared in 25 games during his second collegiate season, averaging 13.4 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.88 blocks en route to being named the 2006 Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

The Raptors signed Solomon as a free agent July 28, 2008. He appeared in 39 games with Toronto, averaging 4.9 points and 3.2 assists.
