Knicks finalizing trade to send center Willy Hernangomez to Hornets

Kyle O'Quinn

Hernangomez, a 23-year-old center from Spain, emerged as a fan favorite in NY but was averaging 4.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in just over nine minutes of action per night.

"We're excited to add a player of Willy's caliber to our team", said Cho.

This season, Hernangomez had only played 26 games while averaging nine minutes, a steep decline from the 72 games played and 18.4 minutes averaged previous year. The Knicks thought Hernangomez was good enough to play 72 games last season - and he was solid! - and instead buried him in the rotation this year.

Hernangomez, 23, has been unhappy about his playing time as a third stringer who racked up 29 DNPs through 55 games. While he did request a trade, it would not have been hard to carve out some minutes for Hernangomez the rest of this season, especially given Porzingis' season-ending ACL surgery on Wednesday. "Whatever happens, I'm ready for it".

TDP protests against Budget outside Parliament
Senior TDP leader, TG Venkatesh, said discussions would not help anymore and that the Centre needed to fulfill its commitment. On Sunday, Veerraju called the TDP a party of corrupt people, ruling the state after dethroning a great leader (NT Rama Rao).

The 6-foot-11 Spaniard, who was taken in the second round of the 2015 draft by the Philadelphia 76ers and traded the same day to the Knicks, has two years remaining on the four-year rookie contract he signed in 2016.

The Knicks are now expected to explore trading both point guard Jarrett Jack and center Kyle O'Quinn.

Noah's salary - he is owed roughly another $44 million through the 2019-20 season - is an obstacle in trade talks.

After showing flashes of becoming a productive center in the league last season, averaging 8.2 points and seven rebounds per game in just over 18 minutes per night, Hernangomez lost the starting job after the Knicks acquired Enes Kanter in the Carmelo Anthony trade. He averaged 4.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 10.3 minutes per game in 40 total appearances with the Hornets. He also has played for the Denver Nuggets.
