The AFL have announced that Gold Coast will receive pick No.3 in this year’s draft as compensation for losing Tom Lynch.
That means the Suns now have picks two and three at the draft. They also have pick 19, giving them three picks in the top 20 as it stands.
Lynch joined Richmond as a restricted free agent on Monday on a seven-year deal worth more than $6 million.
The 25-year-old nominated Richmond as his club of choice last week after eight seasons with the Suns.
Lynch played 131 games and kicked 254 goals for Gold Coast.
He made the All-Australian team in 2016 and is a two-time best-and-fairest winner.
