The Hornets have made a move. There are a couple of different reports on this but the main thing is: fan favorite Marcus Thornton is being traded to the Sacramento Kings for forward Carl Landry. David Andersen or cash may or may not be involved. Earlier tonight on twitter ESPN’s Marc Stein said:
Sacramento and New Orleans closing in on deal that would send Carl Landry to Hornets for Marcus Thornton and David Andersen
Later, Marc Spears from Yahoo! reported:
NO close to sending G Marcus Thornton and cash to SAC for forward Carl Landry, sources tell Y!. NO big David Andersen not expected 2 be in.
The deal is expected to be finalized tomorrow. Tomorrow we’ll have more coverage and analysis. But tonight everyone take a deep breath, close twitter for a while (I know I need to), maybe break open a bottle of wine, pinot nior is my favorite, or maybe a nice glass of bourbon on the rocks, if you’re underage go for some sparkling cider, take your mind of the Hornets, let the trade marinate a little bit, no need to jump to conclusions. Yes it is a change for the team for good? or bad? maybe even scary? We’ll find out later.
