An NBA All-Rookie First Team selection in 2016-17, Hernangomez was originally selected by Philadelphia with the 35th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft before having his rights traded to NY. However, Hernangomez had fallen out of the rotation this season despite being called a building block last summer by Knicks management.
The New York Knicks have traded center Willy Hernangomez to the Charlotte Hornets. With the addition of Enes Kanter over the summer, Hernangomez fell out of the Knicks' rotation and is only averaging 9 minutes per game compared to 18 past year. "To be able to do that in NY would be wonderful, everybody knows I love the city, I love the fans".
Now Porzingis is headed for surgery and Hernangomez is on his way to Charlotte.
