Re: Okafor for Chandler?
As far as I know the only team that has any salary room is Sacramento and they're not adding any salary...Memphis has like 2 million.
I think you're underestimating how bad Vlad's worth vs. contract is. If it was a team option vs. a player option I think it could be doable...but 2 years is a tough pill for any team to swallow, esp. if we're wanting a useful player back.
Side note...that's why those full MLE deals really suck at the end. They might start out pretty decent, but by the end of it (like 5 years) the player ends up being way overpaid.
