Drafted to the club in 2018 with the No. 75 pick, the 22-year-old has featured in 16 games that year but started eight of those games as a substitute.
The speedy striker also impressed in his limited time, scoring multiple goals in three games this year. He was also a member of Casey’s premiership in the VFL.
He will likely slot right into the Giants forward line and is a perfect replacement for Bobby Hill, who will join Collingwood.
Meanwhile, the unrestricted Free Agent Hunt appears to be heading to the West Coast.
The 27-year-old met with Eagles coach Adam Simpson this week and is reportedly close to signing a three-year deal.
He has made 114 appearances for the Demons but missed out on the historic 2021 Premiership after being dropped on the eve of the final.
It’s going to be a busy trading period for the demons with young weapons Luke Jackson probably finding his way to Fremantle after soliciting a trade home to Western Australia.
The club should also land Brodie Grundy by Collingwood in a massive move that could tie the top two jerking men in the last decade.
But how exactly Grundy and Max Gawn Game in the same team remains to be seen.
