Another trade has dawned on us this afternoon. Sources say that Marco Belinelli will be traded to the Hornets in exchange for Julian Wright.

The Hornets, who earlier acquired Trevor Ariza, are continuing their rebuilding process by adding the Italian guard. Belinelli averaged 7.3 points and 1.3 assists in 66 games.

Toronto, who acquired Leandro Barbosa a few weeks ago, filled a void at the small  forward position by acquiring Julian Wright. Wright averaged 3.8 points and 2.1 rebounds last season.

The deal has yet to become official by the NBA.
