Hornets acquire Ryan Anderson.
The Orlando Magic and Ryan Anderson have agreed to a sign and trade with the New Orleans Hornets. Anderson, will be receiving a four year, 36 million contract. Orlando will receive Gustavo Ayon.
The New Orleans made this move in order to get more talent around Eric Gordon and rookies Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers. Anderson, the NBA most improved player, is a 6'10 forward that loves shooting the ball, especially from long range. He averaged 16 PPG and 7 boards. He will spread the floor for Davis and help Gordon with the scoring load.
Ayon, also 6'10, is a talented player, despite averaging just 5.9 PPG and 4.9 RPG, he has a lot of talent and will only get better. Ayon is going to be a good asset for the Magic, who are now entering a rebuilding process.
