The Charlotte Hornets will acquire Jeremy Lamb from the Oklahoma City Thunder in a deal involving the contract of Matt Barnes.
Barnes will not end up with the Thunder as part of the deal.
I am told the @hornets will also end up with Jeremy Lamb in a separate deal involving Matt Barnes’ contract. Barnes isn’t going to OKC.

Lamb was the 12th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft out of UConn, coming to the Thunder as part of the James Harden trade.
The Hornets have also acquired forward Nicolas Batum from the Portland Trail Blazers, sending shooting guard Gerald Henderson and power forward Noah Vonleh.
