Robin Lopez Traded to Hornets in Three-Team Deal

The Phoenix Suns have traded center Robin Lopez, forward Hakim Warrick and cash considerations to the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Jerome Dyson, Brad Miller, two second-round draft picks and Wesley Johnson (via Minnesota). The move will reportedly clear way for the Timberwolves to sign forward Andrei Kirilenko. RealGM.com has the details: “Phoenix receives Brad Miller and Jerome Dyson from the Hornets, as well as Wesley Johnson and a 1st round pick from Minnesota. Minnesota receives Brooklyn’s 2013 second-round round pick and their own 2016 second-round round pick from New Orleans. ‘We are very excited about this trade that brings us two quality people and basketball players to help strengthen our foundation as a team,’ Hornets General Manager Dell Demps said. ‘This move gives us a true center in Robin Lopez who brings youth and is a tough, inside rebounder. In Hakim, we get an experienced, versatile forward who will bring a veteran presence to our team.’”

    if the hornets plan to make the playoffs this year then they will need to start ryan anderson at center. Last year Anderson had the second highest +/- playing center only behind d-howard….im just saying

  • LA Huey

    @ Teddy, so they signed Ryan Anderson as an expensive 6th man? I gave the Hornets front office too much credit then.

  • http://www.slamonline.com aman from arkansas

    So they have Hakim, Ryan, and Anthony Davis playing PF?

  • Al

    Ryan Anderson will start at SF, Davis PF, Lopez C, Gordon SG and Rivers/Vazquez at PG. much better bench than last year.
