Hornets Encouraged By Trade Interest In Core Players
The New Orleans Hornets didn't make a trade this week, but Dell Demps was encouraged by the interest rival teams expressed in his players.
“I usually don’t like to talk about actual trade details but what I will say is we got a call on a number of guys but we really like our core, we like our young group and we want to see them grow,” Demps said on Friday. “It’s a good sign when players call on your team, it means they have value but we like our young group right now. It will be interesting to see how we finish out the season.”
Eric Gordon was mentioned in several trade rumors leading up to the deadline.
