Cavaliers trade G Wesley to Hornets for F Simmons
Simmons, 21, was a 2006 first-round pick by the Hornets, who buried him on the bench for most of his rookie campaign. The 6-9 Simmons averaged 2.9 points and 2.5 rebounds in 43 games last season.
“Cedric is a young, talented player,” Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry said. “We look forward to participating in his continued development here in Cleveland.”
Earlier Saturday, the Cavaliers signed free agent guard Devin Brown, who spent last season with the Hornets.
The 36-year-old Wesley was a little-used reserve in his lone season with Cleveland, averaging 2.1 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.1 assists. The 14-year veteran will be in his second stint with the Hornets.
