The deal will send 6-foot-9 forward Johnny O'Bryant to the Knicks. Instead of building on those numbers and finding a niche, the 23-year-old has seen a huge dip in playing time this season.
He played in 72 games a season ago, getting a solid 18.4 minutes per contest and averaging 8.2 points and 7.0 rebounds.
Hernangomez's representatives recently had informed Knicks officials that he wanted to be traded, seeking a team in which Hernangomez could continue his development as a young National Basketball Association center. "This trade adds valuable draft picks, better positioning this team as we build toward the future".
The New York Knicks fire sale has begun. He averaged 4.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in 26 games with NY this season.
The team also plans to aggressively pursue younger players and draft picks ahead of Thursday's trade deadline in the wake of Kristaps Porzingis' season-ending injury, league sources told ESPN.
Hernangomez is in the second year of a four-year, $5.86 million deal. In June of 2014, O'Bryant was drafted 36th Overall by the Milwaukee Bucks.
O'Bryant originally joined the Hornets on February 24, 2017, signing a pair of 10-day contact and then for the remainder of the season.
With Hernangomez, Enes Kanter, Kyle O'Quinn and Joakim Noah on the roster, the Knicks had been eager to move at least one of their centers.
The Hornets have come in as a surprise suitor, with the most recent interest reported in Hernangomez coming from the San Antonio Spurs and Detroit Pistons. The injury to Kristaps Porzingis may have opened up some time for Hernangomez in NY, but it seems that the bridge was already burned.
His return, if all is fixed without issues, should come around this time next year, which is more than halfway through the season. Porzingis is eligible for a five-year, $150-million contract extension this summer, which only adds more drama to his situation.
