That swap allowed the Swans to grab Taylor, with pick 48 being on-traded to Brisbane for the former Rising Star winner.
The 23-year-old will join the Swans on a reported three-year deal.
“We’re excited to have secured Lewis from Brisbane as we think he has the potential to be a really important player for us for years to come,” Sydney’s Head of Football Charlie Gardiner told the club’s website.
“Lewis really burst onto the scene from a young age and showed he has great speed and elite skills that will really complement our side.
“We look forward to Lewis joining Sydney for the start of pre-season and seeing him continue his career in red and white.”
