The Chicago Bulls agreed to trade veteran guard Kirk Hinrich and the 17th pick, French forward Kevin Seraphin, to the Washington Wizards for a future second-round pick.
HORNETS GET 2-FOR-1 ON FIRST-ROUNDERS
The New Orleans Hornets agreed to trade first-round pick Cole Aldrich and veteran shooting guard Morris Peterson to Oklahoma City for the Thunder’s 21st and 26th picks.
Peterson is heading into the final year of a four-year $23 million contract. New Orleans, which entered the draft with only one first-round pick and none in the second, will receive Iowa State forward Craig Brackins (No. 21) and Washington guard Quincy Pondexter (26).
The 6-foot-11, 245-pound Aldrich was taken with the 11th overall pick and averaged 11.3 points, 9.8 rebounds and 3.5 blocks last season as a junior for the Jayhawks.
In a text to The Associated Press, Peterson says he’s excited to be joining a "great, young up-and-coming team."
BLAZERS BAG BABBITT AND GOMES
The Minnesota Timberwolves selected Nevada shooter Luke Babbitt with the 16th overall pick and immediately shipped him and veteran Ryan Gomes to Portland for Martell Webster.
Babbitt gives the Blazers a shooter to spread the floor for LaMarcus Aldridge and Brandon Roy.
Webster averaged 9.4 points and 3.3 rebounds for the Blazers last year and immediately upgrades the athleticism for Minnesota.
Gomes spent the past three seasons in Minnesota after coming over from Boston in the Kevin Garnett trade. He averaged 10.9 points and 4.6 rebounds last year.
NETS, HAWKS SWAP FIRST-ROUNDERS
The Hawks agreed to trade Texas forward Damion James, taken with Atlanta’s No. 24 pick, to New Jersey for one of the Nets’ two first-round picks, Xavier guard Jordan Crawford, the No. 27 pick. The Hawks also received the No. 31 pick, German 7-footer Tibor Pleiss, and dealt him to Oklahoma City for cash.
The 6-foot-7 James averaged 18 points and 10.3 rebounds as a senior with the Longhorns. Crawford led Xavier with a 20.5 point average.
WIZARDS KEEP DEALING
The Washington Wizards agreed to send forward Lazar Hayward of Marquette, the 30th overall pick, to Minnesota with the 35th pick, Serbian forward Nemanja Bjelica, for the 23rd and 56th selections. The No. 23 pick by Minnesota was 6-foot-7 forward Trevor Booker from Clemson, while the No. 56 pick was Rutgers center Hamady Ndiaye.
MAVS MAKE MOVES
The Dallas Mavericks acquired Dominique Jones from Memphis for cash after the Grizzlies took him with the 25th pick.
Jones is a 6-foot-5, 216-pound guard who left South Florida after his junior year. He was a first-team All-Big East selection, averaging 21.4 points per game last season.
Team owner Mark Cuban tweeted: "We tried to trade into the top20 to get (Jones), got lucky to get him 25."
Dallas also dealt Florida State center Solomon Alabi, the 50th pick, to Toronto for a future second-rounder and cash.
THUNDER KEEPS DEALIN’
Oklahoma City agreed to trade No. 18 pick Eric Bledsoe of Kentucky to the Los Angeles Clippers for a future first-round draft pick.
The Miami Heat make its second trade with Oklahoma City in the span of two days, sending the rights to forward Latavious Williams for a protected second-round pick in 2011.
Williams is the first player to skip college, play a year in the NBA Developmental League and then get drafted. He averaged 7.7 points and 7.7 rebounds this past season for the Tulsa 66ers.
The Indiana Pacers swapped picks with Oklahoma City to get Louisiana Tech’s Magnum Rolle in the second round.
Indiana took Florida State’s Ryan Reid with the 57th pick, then sent it to Oklahoma City along with some cash for Rolle. The 6-foot-11 center averaged 13.9 points and 8.4 rebounds and led the Western Athletic Conference with 2.1 blocks per game.
The 24-year-old transferred from LSU before redshirting, then had two strong seasons for the Bulldogs.
