Carl Landry traded to Hornets for Marcus Thornton


New Orleans receives: Carl Landry


Sacramento receives: Marcus Thornton, and cash

Analysis: We touched on this last night when the story broke, but essentially, it's a questionable move for the Hornets, who are hoping for a special combination with him and the Hornets guards. At least it means less time for Jason Smith. For the Kings, they get some cap relief and a good young wing player who can drop 30 at any given moment. Now, how this fits in with a crowded backcourt rotation is anyone's guess, but it's great return on investment.

Trade Tracker: Kings swap Landry to NOLA

I think this is a good trade for the Hornets. Carl Landry is a great player that come off the bench and put up 15 points for you a night and have a good shooting percentage. The Kings made a bad trade..they have too many guards but it do open things up more for Demarcus Cousins to dominate more in the paint. This trade should make the Hornets a bigger threat in the playoffs but not much.
