Bucks Gaming, the only winless team in the NBA 2K League, made a move Monday with an eye to the future.

The Bucks dealt Aaron "Arooks" Rookwood and a 2022 third-round draft pick to Sixers Gaming, receiving Robert "Caliraq" Ruiz and a 2022 first-round pick in return.

Caliraq, a rookie from San Jose who was selected 12th overall in this year's draft, averaged 10.4 points and 1.8 assists while playing each game so far this season for the 76ers (6-4).

Arooks put up 14.7 points and 1.4 assists per game while appearing in nine contests this season for the Bucks (0-10).

Week 5 of the NBA 2K League season tips off Wednesday, when the Bucks will play two games against Mavs Gaming (5-5). The 76ers' next action is a Saturday doubleheader against league-leading Grizz Gaming (9-1).
