Hornets officially acquire Robin Lopez in 3-team deal
The Hornets have acquired Robin Lopez, Hakim Warrick, and cash considerations from the Suns in exchange for Jerome Dyson, Brad Miller and two 2nd round picks (Brooklyn’s 2013 second round selection and Minnesota’s 2016 second round draft choice) as part of a three-team trade along with the Timberwolves.
Phoenix receives Brad Miller and Jerome Dyson from the Hornets, as well as Wesley Johnson and a 1st round pick from Minnesota.
Minnesota receives Brooklyn’s 2013 2nd round pick and their own 2016 2nd round pick from New Orleans.
“We are very excited about this trade that brings us two quality people and basketball players to help strengthen our foundation as a team,” Hornets General Manager Dell Demps said. “This move gives us a true center in Robin Lopez who brings youth and is a tough, inside rebounder. In Hakim, we get an experienced, versatile forward who will bring a veteran presence to our team.”
