ALBANY FIREWOLVES ACQUIRE JORDI JONES-SMITH FROM RIPTIDE

ALBANY, NY – The Albany FireWolves of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) have acquired Jordi Jones-Smith from the New York Riptide in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2026 NLL Entry Draft. If Jones-Smith plays in six or more games during the 2023-24 season, the exchanged draft pick will instead be Albany’s fourth round in the 2026 draft.
