NEW ORLEANS (AP) – The Hornets have acquired Carl Landry from the Sacramento Kings for Marcus Thornton and cash considerations.
New Orleans general manager Dell Demps said in statement Wednesday that it’s a deal that “benefits both teams.” He says the 6-foot-9 Landry is a player the Hornets have been looking to acquire for a long time.
With the Hornets hosting the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night, Hornets coach Monty Williams held Thornton, a former LSU star, out of the morning shoot-around because of the pending trade.
Landry sat out the Kings’ loss in Miami Tuesday night.
