Per Charania, the Knicks will receive big man Johnny O'Bryant and two second-round draft picks from the Hornets.

Enes Kanter and Kyle O'Quinn have logged the majority of the Knicks' minutes at center this season. It was widely known in National Basketball Association circles that the Knicks were making Hernangomez available in trade, with the 3 p.m. Thursday deadline looming.

Third ODI: Kohli ton powers India to 303/6 in 50 overs
For South Africa , Duminy took two wickets while Rabada, Morris, Tahir and Andile Phehlukwayo chipped in with one wicket apiece. Kohli said yesterday's hundred was special in the sense that he had to continuously change his game through the innings.

In his 2 seasons with the New York Knicks, Hernangomez averaged 7.1 Points in 15.9 Minutes per game. The deal comes hours after the Knicks lost All-Star Kristaps Porzingis to a torn ACL.

Taken with the 35th overall pick of the 2015 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers and later traded to the Knicks, Hernangomez made his pro debut for the Real Madrid senior team in 2015. Those numbers are nearly identical to O'Bryant's numbers as he's averaging 4.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per outing. In Early February, O'Bryant signed a 10-day contract with the Nuggets, before finally signing and extending his 10-day contract with the Charlotte Hornets. Porzingis will be out for next season, Kanter and O'Quinn gone through free-agency and now you trade Hernangomez. More recently, they requested that NY send Hernangomez to a team where he'd have a better chance to play and develop. "So the only thing I really want is to find the best way for my future before Thursday". I expected the organization to look to trade players away, especially the older guys after the Porzingis injury. The injury to Kristaps Porzingis may have opened up some time for Hernangomez in NY, but it seems that the bridge was already burned.
