Straight cash dump on the Hornets part. Unsuprising given there finacial situation, and how hard attendance is likely to hit them next year...if their still even in NO.

Great move for the Thunder. Chandler has his flaws, but he massively improves their front court defense and rebounding. If they draft a quality SG this that could be a fantastic team very soon.

If you did your research you would find the Hornets are 19th in attendance and EIGHTH in the league in attendance percentage with 97.5% (meaning 97.5% of the seats in the New Orleans arena are sold on average.)

If you also did your research you would find the sole reason behind this is to avoid paying luxury tax dollars next year (the Posey signing put the Hornets in this situation)

"The Hornets would wriggle out of Chandler's contract and get themselves out of a potential luxury-tax mess next season."

Order:

1)Fiscal responsibility
2)Basketball

How old is Chandler? If the Thunder get Griffin in the draft... holy crap.
C-Chandler
F-Griffin
F-Green
G-Durant
G-Westbrook

Good young core. 4 top 5 picks... and I'm not sure where Chandler was drafted.

I suggest picking up Chris Wilcox and dropping Nenad Krstic.

Thunder are going to be nice in a few years. If they get their hands on Griffin that would be insane. James Harden would also be pretty sick

I'd laugh if OKC goes into a dynasty instead of Portland. Oden sitting on the bench while KD wins championships....

Hornets should've never signed Posey and Mo Peterson. That's eleven million right there that's forcing you to cut costs with Chandler.
