The New Orleans Hornets continued to add to their rebuilding process Sunday, agreeing to terms with restricted free agent forward Ryan Anderson, the NBA’s 2012 Most Improved Player winner, on a four-year deal worth between $34 and $36 million, according to league sources. The acquisition will officially be a sign-and-trade deal, with the Magic receiving center Gustavo Ayon from New Orleans. The deal cannot be consummated until after the end of the July Moratorium on the 11th. NBA.com

The Magic will receive young Hornets center Gustavo Ayon in the deal. The Hornets were in talks to sign Anderson, a restricted free agent, to an offer sheet, but sources say that trade talks with the Magic have progressed quickly once Orlando officials decided they would not want to match an offer to Anderson. NBA.com is reporting that Anderson will sign a four-year deal worth between $34-36 million. ESPN.com

"I've spoken with a couple of European teams already, but mostly out of courtesy because there's a very small chance he plays in Europe," Duran said. "I would be surprised if New Orleans doesn't exercise the contract option. But if that happened, I would be very surprised if Ayon doesn't play in the NBA with another team next season anyway. There was interest from other teams like Denver and Oklahoma City in the past. He's done more than enough to warrant another contract." HoopsHype
