The New Jersey Nets have agreed to send center Marc Jackson and forward Linton Johnson to the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Bostjan Nachbar, ESPN.com has learned.

The deal is pending league approval.

The Nets' motive for the deal was to get under the tax level to sign Tim Thomas if and when the Bulls buy out his contract.

The Hornets acquire some much needed size in the veteran Jackson.

I'm curious as to how much of an impact Jackson will have on the Hornets. They are struggling for some quality big-man play.

I know there is mutual interest with Thomas and the Spurs if he was waived..

Yeah, I'm pretty disappointed with his performance this year. Jersey could have really used a good big man to pair with Krstic but Jackson's simply disappeared. Hope he'll have a bigger impact with the Hornets. Tim Thomas to the Nets...that's weird.
