Crows would take that IMO
Get a near on like for like replacement. Practically same height, intercept marker. Is a year behind Lever draft wise/development wise. He should be pretty much ready post this pre season to get a hold on playing senior footy as a 3rd tall defender.
Top5 draft pick so talent there and he is from SA. Francis is under contract also with us.
It’s not often clubs lose a player they don’t want to and get back someone who can play same role and potentially to same level.
Also Francis’s $$ would be nowhere near what Lever wanting from Adelaide/getting offered elsewhere. And salary cap is a factor for them.
