Charlotte Hornets trade for guard Marco Belinelli

The Charlotte Hornets agreed to trade the No. 22 pick in Thursday’s NBA draft to the Sacramento Kings in return for veteran shooting guard Marco Belinelli.

The deal cannot be formally completed until next month, when the NBA’s new salary cap kicks in. But the two teams agreed that the Hornets would choose a player on the Kings’ behalf to facilitate this trade. That player was Syracuse shooting guard Malachi Richardson.
