The New Orleans Hornets have traded center Hilton Armstrong(notes) and cash to the Sacramento Kings in a salary-clearing move, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The deal removes Hiltonís $2.8 million salary from the Hornetsí payroll, leaving them only a little more than $500,000 over the luxury-tax threshold. The Kings will send the Hornets a future, conditional second-round pick.

I thought for awhile, that Hilton was the next Nene, or something like that. He's definitely stunk it up in New Orleans though. I doubt he gets a lot of playing time in Sacto either.
