Despite a plethora of moves across the NBA, including Stephen Jackson to the Spurs for Richard Jefferson, Derek Fisher to the Rockets for Jordan Hill, Andrew Bogut to the Warriors for Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh, Gerald Wallace to the Nets for a top-3 protected 2012 pick, Ramon Sessions to the Lakers, Nate McMillan's firing, Nene Hilario to the Wizards, Nick Young to the Clippers, and Javale McGee to the Nuggets, the Hornets were not participants at the deadline.

The Rockets acquired Portland's Marcus Camby essentially for free to fill a need at center, and while Indiana's trade for Toronto's Leandro Barbosa didn't necessarily preclude them from making a further move for Kaman, it could certainly have played a role in sealing that trade avenue. Towards the end of the deadline, there was reportedly interest from Milwaukee in Carl Landry, but nothing came to fruition.

So here we are. Dell Demps and the Hornets sat on a number of possible assets, including Landry, Kaman, and Jarrett Jack, and it's unclear immediately what the fallout will be. That they didn't make a single move in a deadline full of them, however, is rather disappointing.
