Hornets Will Acquire Ryan Anderson In Sign-And-Trade With Magic

Ryan Anderson has reportedly been sent to the New Orleans Hornets in a sign-and-trade that will send Gustavo Ayon to the Orlando Magic. Anderson's deal is worth approximately $36 million over four years.

With the addition of Anthony Davis in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Hornets figure to have a strong frontcourt next season. Anderson earned the league's Most Improved Player award after recording career-highs in every major statistical category. He averaged 16.1 points per game, shooting 43.9 percent from the field.

Ayon appeared in 54 games with the Hornets last season, and averaged 5.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per game.
