Hornets trade Armstrong to Kings

The New Orleans Hornets have traded center Hilton Armstrong(notes) and cash to the Sacramento Kings
The deal removes Hilton’s $2.8 million salary from the Hornets’ payroll, leaving them only a little more than $500,000 over the luxury-tax threshold. The Kings will send the Hornets a future, conditional second-round pick.

Seems like a reasonable move for both teams. Hornets cut salary, while Sacramento picks up a young prospect who can add depth to their front court. The Kings should definitely try to get him some decent playing time before the end of the year. Hilton is a restricted free agent next summer, so the Kings will need to decide if he is worth keeping. His qualifying offer is close to $4 million. That money could eat into the Kings' valuable cap space. With that in mind, in the next few months, the Kings have to figure out exactly what Hilton can provide. I'm curious to see if this is just one in a string of moves the Kings will be making before the deadline.
