BYE BYE WES! I'm sure many of you are now happy that Kahn has made a decision to get rid of the smile master. The Hornets, Suns and Timberwolves have agreed to a multiplayer trade sending 7-foot center Robin Lopez and forward Hakim Warrick from Phoenix to New Orleans, while moving forward Wesley Johnson and a first-round draft pick from Minnesota to Phoenix, a person familiar with the deal said. The deal also sends guard Jerome Dyson and retiring center Brad Miller's $5.1 million contract from New Orleans to Minnesota, allowing the Timberwolves to clear space under the NBA's salary cap as they pursue free agents. Minnesota also will receive two second-round draft picks from New Orleans, while the Hornets will receive cash. EDIT: Copy added; moved to front page This deal is being made to generate enough cap space to make a formal offer to Andrei Kirilenko. Expect an announcement on that soon...AK-47 will want to sign with someone before the Olympics begin.
