Hornets Move "My Prerogative" for a Draft Pick, Get Under Luxury Cap


The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they have acquired a conditional second round pick in 2014 from the Los Angeles Clippers in exchange for guard Bobby Brown. "With today’s move, we put ourselves in a position that is under the luxury tax threshold while preserving the ability to maximize our results on the court and keeping our core intact," said Head Coach Jeff Bower. The Hornets acquired Brown on Sept. 9, 2009 from Minnesota. Brown played in 22 games for the Hornets this season, averaging 6.6 points and 2.1 assists per game. He registered a season-high 18 points at Dallas on Nov. 4 and hit for double-digit points on five occasions.
