The Wizards are reportedly close to a deal that would send Antonio Daniels to the Hornets in exchange for veteran point guard Mike James. The Grizzlies could also be involved, possibly including Javaris Crittenton for a conditional draft pick.
The contracts don't match (James makes $5.6 million this season and Daniels $6.2 million) so other players would have to be involved. New Orleans forward Melvin Ely is a possibility. A deal is expected to be announced in the next few hours, so stay tuned.
