Default TRADE: Raptors send Marco Belinelli to Hornets for Julian Wright

The Hornets didn't stop there. NBA front office sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that in a separate deal, the team agreed to send swingman Julian Wright to Toronto for Raptors guard Marco Belinelli. That deal, like the four-team trade, was also expected to be completed Wednesday.

It's a Blockbuster.

yeah, I saw this on espn embedded in the other trade story. Meh. I guess it gives them a 2 guard to go along with ariza on the wings, but meh nonetheless.

...what?

Why does Toronto do this deal? Aren't they both on rookie contracts? Both third year players? Wright makes a bit less but come on, Belinelli is shooting almost 40% on threes for his career.

I guess they think derozan and weem are better suited at the 2 (as was marco). Wright gives them more length.

I'm excited. This might mean that Belinelli actually gets a chance to show his stuff. Come on now! He's lean, long, pretty quick for his height and he can shoot the lights out. He never gets playing time, so he never gets consistent confidence to back his game up.

He might be weak defensively, but he's better than Peja at this point.

Belinelli is a great player when he's on, not a good defender but a good overall offensive player. He never had the chance of play heavy minutes though. I hope he can be at least part of the NO rotation.

Yep.

Hes trying to make his mark as a defender, but you can only be on the court for so long if you can't do anything on offense.

If you put a great passing PG in Toronto, they're going to be finishing alley oops all game.

Had a man crush on Wright when he was at Kansas. Thought he was a top 5 draft pick based on ability....now he has a chance to prove his worth.

Chris Paul could use some more shooters, especially since Peja is washed up.

Julian Wright has been a horror show in the NBA so far. He should have stayed in college longer. He hasn't improved one bit.

As a Raps fan, I would rather have Belinelli. At least he's shown more promise.

Man, if we could have only gotten Collison. I'd feel a lot better about this team.
