Adelaide has secured a double deal with Hawthorn, recruiting ruckman Luke Lowden and defender Kyle Cheney.
Cheney is on his way to his third AFL club, while Lowden left the Hawks searching for a greater chance of playing senior football after being behind David Hale, Jonathon Ceglar and Ben McEvoy in the pecking order.
Cheney and Lowden were traded with picks 43 and 47 for the Crows’ second, third and fourth round draft picks.
The Crows have given up picks No.31, No.50 and No.68 to the Hawks, and have swapped their no.10 pick for Geelong’s no.14 as part of the deal.
They also gave the Cats pick no.47, which was then on-traded from the Hawks and picked up pick no.35 from Geelong.
