NEW ORLEANS - A person familiar with the negotiations says the Hornets and Kings have verbally agreed to a trade sending forward Carl Landry to New Orleans in exchange for shooting guard Marcus Thornton.

The deal is pending league approval and is expected to become official before Thursday's NBA trade deadline, the person told The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because neither team has announced the trade.

With the Hornets hosting the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night, Hornets coach Monty Williams held Thornton out of the morning shoot-around.

Williams says he told Thornton to stay home because of a pending trade involving the former LSU star.

Landry sat out the Kings' loss in Miami Tuesday night.
