Default Emeka Okafor

Have you guys hashed out a long term deal with Okafor yet or have given him an offer. Or do you think will he go out on the open market to test the waters. I see has a qualifying offer for the 2008-2009 season so it could be a bidding war for his services. What do you guys think about Okafor's status as a Bobcat in the long term.

Nothing as of yet. I get the feeling he'll seriously listen to other offers though if Vincent isn't canned.

Kind of hard to have a bidding war when we can just match the first contract he brings to us.

Why would PHI want him with Dalembert?

He'll stay but do think we'll have to pay him big money to do that. 12-13 million last year probably means 14-15 per this. He's very good but be a shame if we do have to pay him more than about 12. He's shown can stay fit and is a top contributer but not a max player for sure.

Something tells me him staying will be directly related to what coach we have next season.

I'd put money on him staying if we fire Vincent. Gone if we are dumb enough to keep Vincent. But I can't see the 76ers going after him with a lot better free agents out there and the need to re-sign AI.

Actually we need a solid PF we need more inside punch to go along with Dalembert. That is an area that we are looking to improve this summer because Reggie Evans is not cutting it.

You never know I don't see alot of extremely good pf's becoming free agents this summer. Say there is a good one he's going to command a huge contract and i'm not sure if we sre going to give out a huge contract to a pf even though our gm said that is a area off huge need.
