Willy Hernangomez got his wish after he was traded to the Charlotte Hornets by the New York Knicks. With the addition of Enes Kanter over the summer, Hernangomez fell out of the Knicks' rotation and is only averaging 9 minutes per game compared to 18 previous year. It's nearly impossible for him to get less run than he had been in NY, so any extra minutes for him will constitute a win.

An NBA All-Rookie First Team selection, Hernangomez was originally selected by Philadelphia with the 35th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft before having his right traded to NY. In November of 2016, Hernangomez was assigned to the NY G-League Roster and later recalled on the same day. Hernangomez has seen his role dramatically reduced this season with his minutes cut by more than half, going from an average of 18.4 previous year to 9.0 this season. Willy was named to the 2016-17 All-Rookie First-Team and won one Rookie of the Month award last season.

Looking at this roster, you start the year with 5 centers or bigs. He will earn about $1.5 Million per year (on average) throughout the 2019-2020 season. His contract is done after this season.

It seemed odd as the experience gained of mixing with Sergio Aguero and Kevin de Bruyne would surely have been invaluable. It's little surprise the Belgium worldwide was looking forward to the three days off that Guardiola gave his players.

The deal will send 6-foot-9 forward Johnny O'Bryant to the Knicks. In June of 2014, O'Bryant was drafted 36th Overall by the Milwaukee Bucks.

Hernangomez proceeded to average 8.2 points and 7.0 rebounds while shooting 52.9 percent from the field during his inaugural campaign. He also added 2.6 Rebounds and 0.5 Assists.

Only time will tell if this trade will allow for Noah to rejoin the team as the third center, or if both parties have already grown apart past a point of return. Willy Hernangomez is a solid young player with good potential and definitely won't hurt the Hornets' salary cap.
