The Hornets have been looking for an accomplished backup to Paul since August, Bayless will almost certainly be handed the role now, especially when his history with Williams is factored in.
It's reported that the 2011 first-round pick that the Blazers will receive from New Orleans is protected 1-to-7 in the 2011 draft and 1-to-8 in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The Blazers will thus take ownership of the pick in the June draft as long as it is No. 8 or lower.
My question would you have wanted this trade for us??
