Pacers Gaming has agreed to send star big man Lets Get It Ramo and its second-round pick to Pistons GT in exchange for the 4th overall pick and a second-round pick in the NBA 2K League 2020 entry draft, the teams announced today.
It will be Ramo’s second stint in Detroit after the power forward/center was drafted by the Pistons with the 5th pick in the inaugural NBA 2K League entry draft before season one. After securing the third seed in the season one playoffs, the Pistons traded Ramo to Indiana for the 4th overall pick in the 2019 entry draft.

This move, in essence, will reverse last year’s trade. Ramo had requested out of Indiana earlier this week, sources told DIMER. In season two, he averaged 14.8 points per game, 6.3 rebounds per game, 5.4 assists per game and 2.1 steals per game, helping the Pacers secure their first playoff berth in team history. He also earned All-NBA 2K League First Team honors and was voted by league players as the fifth-best player in the league following the season.
With the Pistons in season one, he averaged 20.1 points per game, 10.8 rebounds per game, 3.9 assists per game, 2.1 steals per game and 1.7 blocks per game.
Pacers Gaming, following the completion of the trade, will roster star lockdown defender WoLF, sharpshooter Swizurk and NateKahl, who they acquired from NetsGC earlier today for the 16th overall pick, with the 4th overall pick also in their back pocket.
The Pistons, meanwhile, will pair Ramo with DevGoss. The team shipped May to Magic Gaming earlier for the 14th overall earlier today.
