Default Okafor available???

News says he's leaving Charlotte but we'd have to attain him through a S&T

If Deng's situation never gets resolved, I would think Okafor would be high on Paxson's list to trade for...

Possible???

would be another stupid move to trade deng for okafor, whats the point in bringing in a big man who can barely score, might as well stuck with ben wallace if that was the case. this team 2 years ago seemed to have so much upside and I think its all gonna go to waste again.

I think it might actually be a good idea. I don't think they Bulls should overpay for Deng or Gordon, so if they can't get a deal done....sign and trade them. Why risk losing them for nothing? THAT would be stupid! Okafor would be a nice fit. He's big and can play great D. The Bulls need some muscle. If they S&T Deng to get him, then Nocioni's minutes would go up and maybe they could swing Sefolosha to the SF position to get more minutes, making Sefolosha a G/F. Who knows...maybe by getting Okafor, maybe then Gordon will sign for a little less. Not likely, but you never know.

okafor wont come cheap, gordon as much as I like him can walk unless he gets signed for less, as a 6th man who shoots jump shot after jump shot asking for 10 mill a year is rediculous however deng brings more to the table then that. he was the face of the franchise 2 years ago in the playoff run and his game will still grow. most likely what will happen with this front office is deng and gordon will go, some other team will snap up okafor and we can look forward to another lottery where we can draft a guy who has potential and a heart of gold......oh and hinrich will get traded once his value drops

Prince is worth more than Deng, so there is no way we would be able to get the Pistons to throw in a 1st as well. Dumars would walk all over Paxson and probably end up getting Deng, TT, and Rose.
