NBA teams continue to swap Luke Ridnour at an amazing rate.
The OKC Thunder have reportedly traded Jeremy Lamb to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for Ridnour.
Oklahoma City has traded Jeremy Lamb to Charlotte for Luke Ridnour and a 2016 second-round pick, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

The Thunder are expected to waive the 34-year-old guard, or perhaps use him in another trade:
The Thunder will waive Ridnour if they do not use him in another deal before before July 10 when his contract becomes guaranteed. Ridnour was traded by the Orlando Magic to the Memphis Grizzlies for the rights to 2013 second-round pick Janis Timma on Wednesday then was sent to the Hornets in a deal earlier Thursday that delivered Matt Barnes to Memphis.
Oklahoma City is trying to clear salary-cap space to pay restricted free agents Enes Kanter and Kyle Singler.
Lamb, 23, averaged 6.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 47 games for the Thunder last season. He spent his first three seasons in Oklahoma City, which acquired him in the James Harden trade with the Houston Rockets.
