Hornets trade Peja and Bayless to Raptors for Jack, Andersen and Banks!
 
ESPN Link

Peja and Bayless for Jack, Andersen and Banks.

Peja is an experir at 15 Mil
Bayless is sign for 3 Mil next yr and then a RFA.

Banks is a experir
Jack has two more yrs at 5.2 / 5.8 Mil
Andersen has a team option.

Looks like the Hornet are trying to get under the luxury tax a little more and add some depth on there front line. Jack would work well as a back up and could play the 2 next to Paul as well. I don't know why the Raptors do it unless BC thinks its 2001 and Peja is still good.

What do u think of it.

I really think the Hornets should be able to get more for Peja but i guess this season isn't as big of a sell off for experir as last season.

ya that's what I thought too... I put my opinions in my thread... but pretty much NO just traded a massive expiring which could've gotten them a good player at the deadline and a guy they just gave up a pick to get for a good combo guard and 2 scrubs...

Andersen will get minutes he isn't a solid player but on the weak front line hes a 4th big who can play 12 - 18 minutes and bring energy. Maybe the Hornets don't want to bring in anyone who will disrupt there chemistry.

Peja wasn't in the rotation they were just playing him to show he could still play. Pondexter is solid. If one of them goes down they'll just play Pops there.

i'm so confused by this trade. bayless has a ton of potential. why would you give him up if you don't get legit players back.

peja's contract alone is worth more than this trade. i'm really shocked at this trade. they could get a lot more than this......a lot more.

banks is worthless. andersen might help a little. but i'm not sure what they really gain for the playoffs. jack is better than bayless.....but bayless has a much higher ceiling. just wow. i really hope they don't make this trade.

It'll be Pondexter backing up Ariza and if they really need to they'll just play guards with Willie Green at the 3.

this is not how you keep chris paul....which will lose you money in the long run.

just an awful awful trade for a hornets team that is one player away from being a legit contender.

i'm not saying it's a great trade but people have said every single move the Hornets made recently has been "awful awful trade," but all the supposed scrubs they've acquired have thrived in NO. It's possible they are seeing something in Anderson that would make him a big upgrade from Mbenga, who is the weak point in their bench
