The Vertical's Shams Charania reports that the New York Knicks will acquire power forward/center Johnny O'Bryant and two second-round draft picks in exchange for center Willy Hernangomez.

An NBA All-Rookie First Team selection in 2016-17, Hernangomez was originally selected by Philadelphia with the 35th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft before having his rights traded to NY. Michael Scotto of The Athletic reported that both of those draft picks are unprotected. He is only 23-years old and in the second year of his National Basketball Association career.

Willy Hernangomez eventually joined Porzingis in NY, and after his promising rookie season both were considered key pieces for the team's future.

Several teams had engaged in talks for Hernangomez over the past month, but Charlotte worked to finalize a deal Wednesday. Bobby Marks fully detailed the salary cap ramifications of this trade. Hernangomez, 23, has played in just 26 of the Knicks' 55 games, averaging nine minutes, 4.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in those contests. He was an All-Rookie selection last season, but this season had lost most of his playing time to Enes Kanter and Kyle O'Quinn.

Black Lives Matter leader shot, killed
Officials did not confirm whether they are seeking to look at any surveillance video, but say an investigation is ongoing. Beau Tidwell , a spokesperson for the New Orleans Police Department, didn't elaborate on the shooting.

Charlotte made a decision to buy-low on the promising Spaniard. Now he'll leave one crowded frontcourt for another in Buzz City. Just a awful move.

O'Bryant, 24, was a second-round pick by the Milwaukee Bucks in 2014. He ended up earning a partially guaranteed two-year deal and was retained after a strong showing in the summer league.

Jack is averaging 7.7 points and 6.1 assists per game, while O'Quinn is averaging 6.5 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.

Hernangomez, a 23-year-old center from Spain, emerged as a fan favorite in NY but was averaging 4.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in just over nine minutes of action per night.
