Default Three-team deal involving Memphis

No idea who are these guys...

Quote:
The Hornets, Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies finalized a multi-player swap that sends Mike James and Bonzi Wells to New Orleans, with Bobby Jackson, Adam Haluska and a second-round draft pick going to Houston.

New Orleans officially announced the deal Thursday afternoon, an hour before the 3 p.m. ET NBA trading deadline.

Different variations of the trade evolved Wednesday evening, and the Grizzlies got involved to make it a three-team deal.

Memphis receives Brazilian forward Marcus Vinicius from the Hornets. The draft rights to Ukrainian forward Sergei Lishchuk, a second-round pick of the Grizzlies in 2004, were sent to Houston. The Grizzlies, which also get cash considerations from Houston, acquired the draft rights to Senegalese center Malick Badiane, a second-round pick in 2003, from the Rockets.

strange they end up sending their 2nd round pick for the rights to two guys and cash. Sounds like they are selling the pick. I wonder if any of those two guys have any chance of actually playing?

I doubt. Even if they do get playing time, they won't get much at all, if anything.

Vinicius has been already waived. So it was all for the money.
