The Canton Charge has acquired forward Olek Czyz (6’8”, 240, Nevada) from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. The trade is in exchange for the rights to the Reno Bighorns second round draft choice in the 2013 NBA Development League Draft as well as the rights to guard Brady Morningstar. The Reno pick had been previously acquired in exchange for forward Tyrell Biggs.

Czyz has played in eleven games this season for Fort Wayne with eight starts and averages 9.3 points with 4.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.9 steals in 21.3 minutes per game. During the 2013-2014 pre-season, Olek had a stint with the Milwaukee Bucks training camp where he played in four games and averaged 4.8 points with .667 shooting. He had 1.0 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 10.6 minutes per game. Czyz also played professionally in Italy for Acea Virtus Roma in the 2012-2013 season.

Canton has the rights to eight 2014 draft picks: six of their original selections (first, second, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth) as well as Los Angeles’ second round choice and the Texas Legends’ third round pick. The current roster now stands at eleven, while Czyz will be active for tonight’s game in Bakersfield.

The Charge begin a stint of eight consecutive games away from home when they visit the west coast and the Bakersfield Jam tonight at 10:00 p.m. Fans can follow all of the action with live stats and a live YouTube stream of the game on
