MIAMI - Kings forward Carl Landry was held out of Tuesday's night game against the Miami Heat because there is a strong likelihood that he will be traded to the New Orleans Hornets within the next 48 hours. "We are involved in some fairly significant discussions and thought it was prudent not to play him tonight," coach Paul Westphal said after the Kings' lopsided loss.

Landry, who was obtained from the Houston Rockets in the Kevin Martin deal Feb. 18 last year, left with the team from American Airlines Arena. He became suspicious in the second half when he was still on the bench, but wasn't told until Westphal approached him after the game.

The Kings reportedly will get shooting guard Marcus Thornton and center David Andersen in return.
