Hopefully MJ wasn't behind this. He can't possible make his rep as a front office man worse, can he? The Bobcats were actually looking like a team that has 6-8 seed potential towards the end of last season, and now they screw it up with this? The Bobcats had a scrappy defensive team last season which Coach Brown loves to work with and now you head away from that direction by trading your best interior defender? Chandler has no offensive game to speak of and is only a good rebounder, nothing more.

The bobcats are a train wreck, and this trade just brings their ultimate failure even closer.

That's why I'm asking. All sorts of reports of doom and gloom and then this.

This..unfortunately.

I'd like to see a real explanation from MJ and the rest of the front office when they cooked this one up. Really disappointing as a fan/follower/whatever I am, to see that the Bobcats have actually regressed during this off-season. If they make the playoffs then...it would be one of the biggest shocks in sporting history imo.

Bobcats are up for sale, the BET guy is trying to move his majority stake (right?). The cap is tightening, they've got those awesome VladRad and Mohammed contracts on the books. Business is business. Sucks to be a fan of a team that doesn't have empty pockets, but welcome to the reality of the league. After the labor stoppage of 2011 say goodbye to guaranteed contracts, at least to the degree they are now.

And whether or not Charlotte lost the trade (they did), you should be happy to get out from Okafor's deal.

They don't get more salary. Maybe a couple million during TC's last two years, but they save the long term contract of Emeka that eventually pays him over 14 mil in his last year. It saves the team money in the long run.

Well if you look at it over the entire contract, they end up paying more money because Emeka runs for 3 more years over Chandler who is in his final year.

Swapping Chandler (due to earn $11.7 next season) for Okafor ($10.6 million) will save the Hornets just over $1 million next season and cost them an extra $40-plus million over the final three years of Okafor's deal if the 26-year-old exercises his $14.5 million option for the 2013-14 season. Chandler has just one year left on his contract after this season at $12.6 million.

I was talking about the cats. The post I responded to said there was no reason to trade from the cats' perspective. I posted that the reason was to save money over the long run.
