News: Lamb was traded to the Hornets for Luke Ridnour and a 2016 second-round draft pick on Thursday, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
Impact: Lamb vied for time in Oklahoma City's crowded backcourt last season. He played in 47 games, averaging 6.3 points in 14 minutes. In Charlotte, Lamb and P.J. Hairston will likely compete for shooting guard minutes going forward, especially with Lance Stephenson and Gerald Henderson gone. It's worth noting that Lamb played with Hornets star Kemba Walker on Connecticut's 2011 national championship team.

News: The Hornets received Lamb on Thursday from Oklahoma City in exchange for Luke Ridnour and a conditional 2016 second-round draft pick.
Impact: The 23-year-old Lamb played 47 games for the Thunder this season and averaged 6.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.5 minutes.
Rotowire: May 7 / 7:44a ET
News: Lamb featured in just 47 games this season, averaging 6.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.5 minutes per game for the Thunder.
Impact: Lamb fell out of Oklahoma City's rotation this season, causing his numbers to regress across the board. The 2012 lottery pick's inconsistent play makes him hard for fantasy owners to roster in most league formats. At 22 years old, Lamb still has plenty of room to grow, but it remains to be seen whether new Thunder coach Billy Donovan can help revitalize his career.
