Default Hornets trade James for Antonio Daniels

At worse, Daniels can't possibly be a worse fit for the Hornets on the floor, and he won't hurt in the locker room, either. Reportedly, he's one of the league's good guys and for a long time has been a good, but never great, player.

At best, he's the backup point guard that the Hornets have been looking for, a proven veteran who should be able to get New Orleans into its offensive sets when Chris Paul isn't on the floor, which has become a chore this season.

That, and the fact that Daniels - at first glance - seems to be a much better fit for what the Hornets need their backup point guard to do.

This is all the Hornets are looking for. Someone that can get the team into its offensive sets while CP gets a rest. Don't seem like they're asking for a whole lot.

I hope it helps the Hornets. Just a little something to help keep the offense going when Paul is taking a rest.

Mike James said sitting on the bench was "for the birds".

Quote:

Five days ago, Hornets Coach Byron Scott met with point guard Mike James to discuss his diminished role. When the meeting ended, it was determined a trade had to be made, Scott said.

The Hornets granted James his wish Wednesday morning when a three-team deal was completed in which James was sent to the Washington Wizards in exchange for guard Antonio Daniels and a second-round draft pick.

The deal also included the Memphis Grizzlies, who sent guard Javaris Crittenton to the Wizards in exchange for a conditional draft pick Washington originally acquired in the trade that gave Memphis Juan Carlos Navarro.

"We had a conversation, and he said sitting on the bench was for the birds," Scott said. "He felt he had some good years left in him. He felt he didn't get a fair shot. But I thought he got more than a fair shot. So we didn't agree. He loved the guys, but he felt like he needed to be traded."

James could not be reached for comment Wednesday, but several players said they anticipated a trade eventually would involve James, who had struggled to run the offense when filling in for starting point guard Chris Paul. James had difficulty setting up players for shots, and the offense often stalled from a lack of ball movement.

"Mike is more of a scorer," Scott said. "Even in practice, guys weren't real happy with the way he ran the offense."

I'm already liking Daniels more than James and he's only been with the team for about a week.
