Prince, along with a 2021 second-round pick, has been dealt to the Nets in exchange for Allen Crabbe, the 17th pick in the 2019 Draft and a lottery-protected 2020 first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The deal creates nearly two maximum free-agent spots for Brooklyn and gives Atlanta even more picks for its rebuild. Prince may be able to step into a starting role with the Nets and continue seeing nearly 30 minutes per night. However, it's not clear who his teammates will be moving forward, as the Nets hope to gain one or more top-flight players over the summer.
Prince collected 23 points (8-17 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 135-134 loss to the Pacers. Prince wasn't as reliable this year as in past years due to some health issues that forced him to miss 27 games, but when he was on the court, he was a solid bet for double-digit point production. His 44 percent shooting percentage and 39 percent three-point shooting are efficient numbers for a forward, who will certainly look to elevate his game to the next level in the offseason while he's under team control in his fourth year on contract.
Prince finished Friday's game against the Magic with 15 points (5-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-7 FT), a rebound, an assist and a steal over 26 minutes. Prince was one of three Atlanta starters to finish in double figures, but Orlando would roll to a 149-113 victory. The 25-year-old is averaging 13.3 points along with 3.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists through 52 matchups this season.
Prince (foot) will play and start Friday's game against the Magic, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. As expected, Prince will take the court despite some foot soreness. Since March, he's averaging 13.9 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.0 steal in 29.7 minutes.
Prince produced 13 points (4-12 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 130-122 win over the 76ers. Prince returned to action following a three-game absence due to foot soreness. However, he struggled from the field in this one while providing a fairly boring stat line. With that being said, Prince was one of four Hawks to earn 30-plus minutes, so on the bright side it seems likely that his foot is feeling much better.
