Charlotte struck a deal on Wednesday for Knicks’ center Willy Hermangomez in exchange for Johnny O’Bryant III and two second-round draft picks.
The deal comes on the heels of Kristaps Porzingis’ season-ending injury. The Knicks are now all in for the future and Hermangomez wanted out. Charlotte is the beneficiary.
That’s because the Hornets actually save some money on the luxury tax and will gain a player who could end up contributing on the floor. Hermangomez was on the All-Rookie Team last season but failed to find his spot in the rotations this.
It’s still unclear whether the Hornets have built a little momentum or just beat the teams they are supposed to beat. Charlotte won three in a row at Atlanta, vs. Indiana and at Phoenix before losing in Denver in the last game.
Charlotte is still ranked relatively high in a lot of predictor models, including FiveThirtyEight’s. Yet, the Hornets would have to really finish strong and then get some help just to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
A couple of weeks ago, it looked like Utah would have a fire sale at the trade deadline. Now, the Jazz has won seven in a row and looking like a sleeper in the Western Conference.
Ricky Rubio has been scoring at a pace like he never has in his NBA career before. The
now traded Rodney Hood was finally scoring somewhat consistent and somewhat efficiently and Utah is just 2.5 out of the eighth seed in the West.
According to FiveThirtyEight’s model, Utah is fifth in the West. That must have some to do with all the blowouts the Jazz has been having lately but those have to count for something.
Donovan Mitchell will replace Magic forward Aaron Gordon in the upcoming Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. Mitchell is averaging over 19 points per game in his rookie season to go along with 1.5 steals per game.
