TRADE BAIT

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - SPORT -

GONE: Ryan Har­wood, Jono Free­man, Jarrad Jansen, Josh Clay­ton, Blake Gre­war (delisted).

IN PLAY: Tom Rock­liff is a re­stricted free agent who has de­clared Port Ade­laide as his pre­ferred des­ti­na­tion. The Li­ons will not match the Power’s of­fer.

TAR­GETS: Hawthorn leg­end Luke Hodge is the big one and he has com­mit­ted to join­ing the club on a two-year deal. Crow Char­lie Cameron wants to come but Ade­laide will play hard­ball, po­ten­tially ask­ing for the 12th pick in the draft cur­rently held by the Li­ons. With Ma­son Cox re­ject­ing over­tures the Li­ons have now switched their at­ten­tion to fringe Port Ade­laide ruck­man Matthew Lobbe. DRAFT PICKS: 1, 12, 18, 41, 73, 91, 109.

GONE: Kee­gan Brooksby, Jarrad Grant, Mitch Hal­la­han (delisted).

IN PLAY: Po­ten­tially the big­gest fish in the trade pe­riod is for­mer cap­tain Gary Ablett who wants to re­turn to Gee­long. The Suns also have a fight on their hands to keep Adam Saad who seeks a re­turn to Vic­to­ria. Saad, Trent McKen­zie, Bran­don Mat­era and Rory Thomp­son are all pos­si­ble de­par­tures.

TAR­GETS: The Suns are into Port Ade­laide’s Aaron Young and are also in­ter­ested in Jar­man Im­pey. Steven Mot­lop has toured the Suns’ fa­cil­i­ties and is a po­ten­tial re­stricted free agent ac­qui­si­tion. The Suns’ open­ing re­quest from the Cats in a po­ten­tial trade for Ablett was mid­fielder Mitch Dun­can. The Cats flatly re­fused. DRAFT PICKS: 2, 19, 22, 24, 35, 37, 74, 92, 110.
