AFL trades 2020: Jeremy Cameron secures trade from GWS to Geelong in last-minute deal

Geelong left it late, but they secured the biggest name of the trade period by finally landing a trade for Jeremy Cameron.

It came amid a flurry of last-minute deals before the 4.30pm (WA time) deadline, which included Collingwood’s Adam Treloar moving to the Western Bulldogs, fellow Pie Tom Phillips heading to Hawthorn and Essendon’s Orazio Fantasia getting to Port Adelaide.

The Cats reportedly gave up Pick 13 and Pick 15 and Pick 20 at this year’s draft to secure Cameron, as well as a future fourth-round pick.

Geelong received two future second-rounders from the Giants along with the spearhead.

It represented a strong result for GWS, who were rewarded for matching the Cats’ free-agency offer for Cameron before the trade period began.

Cameron, who has led GWS’ goalkicking in every season since their inception in 2012, will partner Tom Hawkins in Geelong’s forward line.

Giants football manager Jason McCartney said he was pleased with the return the club received for the two-time All-Australian.

“We obviously rate Jeremy very highly and felt it necessary to ensure we received fair value for a player of his calibre,” he said.

“We utilised the mechanisms available to us the restricted free agency framework to get the best possible result for our club.

“In addition to this trade, we were able to complete a valuable trade for Jye Caldwell that helped secure the return from Geelong.

“To be able to secure three first-round picks puts us in an incredibly strong position to maintain long-term success.”
