Was this the end for the Kings in Sacramento?
The Sacramento Kings found a shooter they hope they can eventually pair in the backcourt with Tyreke Evans and a high-profile player to help in marketing when they ended up with high-scoring guard Jimmer Fredette after making a draft-day trade Thursday with Charlotte and Milwaukee.
Clemson guard Tanner Smith knows the Tigers aren't experts in the motion offense. Still, the junior thinks the team has picked up first-year coach Brad Brownell's schemes quicker than some may have expected.
The Hornets and Kings have verbally agreed to a trade sending forward Carl Landry to New Orleans in exchange for shooting guard Marcus Thornton and cash considerations, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.
The Hornets and Kings agreed Wednesday on a trade sending forward Carl Landry to New Orleans in exchange for shooting guard Marcus Thornton and cash.
Hornets coach Monty Williams insists he has Marcus Thornton's best interests in mind, even if it hasn't always looked that way when the former LSU star has been a healthy scratch or sitting on the bench for long stretches.
Thornton said he's made up his mind to control what he can and always be ready for whatever minutes he gets.
"I try to give the team a lift whenever they need it," he said.
