ADELAIDE has secured Hawthorn pair Kyle Cheney and Luke Lowden in a complicated exchange for draft selections that involved Geelong in the dying stages of the NAB AFL Trade Period.
 
Cheney is on his way to his third AFL club while Lowden will get more of a chance at AFL level after struggling for opportunities behind David Hale, Jonathon Ceglar and Ben McEvoy.
 
The medium defender and ruckman were packaged with the draft picks (No.43 and No.47) for the Crows' second, third and fourth round picks. 
 
The Crows have given up picks No.31, No.50 and No.68 to the Hawks, and have swapped their first-round pick of No.10 with Geelong's No.14 as part of the deal.
 
They also gave the Cats No.47, which was on-traded from the Hawks, and have obtained No.35 from the Cats.
 
The acquisition of Cheney will help to shore up the Crows' backline after the retirement of Ben Rutten this season.
 
Cheney played 14 games for Melbourne in 2009-10 before making his way to the Hawks for the 2011 season.
 
He played 27 games in the brown and gold but has had limited opportunities in recent years, likely to be reduced again next season by the recruitment of James Frawley and retention of Ryan Schoenmakers.
 
It was the only move the Crows made during the exchange period with the uncontracted Jarryd Lyons failing to find a new home.
 
 
Giles was traded to the Bombers with pick No.62 for No.53 on the final day.
 
Lowden will provide Sam Jacobs with some much-needed back up.
