Hornets trade Armstrong to Mavericks
The New Orleans Hornets traded veteran guard Darrell Armstrong to the Dallas Mavericks for third-year player Dan Dickau.Hornets general manager Allen Bristow said the move allows the Hornets (1-13) to give more playing time to young guards Junior Harrington and Alex Garcia.
”We see bright futures for both of them and feel very comfortable with them receiving more minutes and continuing to develop,” Bristow said.
Armstrong, 36, was brought in to lead the Hornets’ second unit, but often started this season and last because of injuries to Baron Davis, who currently is out with an inflamed disc in his lower back. Armstrong has averaged 10.6 points and four assists in 93 games with New Orleans.
Dickau is averaging 1.3 points in four minutes this season. He has also played for Atlanta and Portland, averaging 2.9 points and 1.3 assists in 97 games.
