Great Trade For The Hornets

The Hornets have traded back-up point guard Mike James to the Washington Wizards for combo guard Antonio Daniels.daniels2

Great deal!

James was rotting on the end of the Hornets bench after proving he’s nothing more than a selfish ball hog who has no concept of team.mikejames

Daniels is considered a class act who’s won an NBA title and played in dozens of crucial post season games.

Daniels can back-up Chris Paul and MoPete and Rasual Butler at the shooting guard position.  Daniels could also play alongside Paul in certain sets much the way Jannero Pargo did last season.  daniels_350

Daniels and James make nearly identical salaries (roughly 6 million dollars) and both of their contracts end after the 2009-2010 season.

  1. This is a great trade for the Hornets! 😀

  2. If we could have traded Mike James for a puppy it would have been worth it. This is way better he might actually play a few minutes.
