At the Hornets' Tuesday morning shootaround in Oklahoma City, West told the New Orleans Times Picayune that he was hoping his team would resist the trade interest in Chandler.
"I don't know if that's somebody we can afford to lose,'' West told the newspaper. "So I'm not sold on that idea. You just don't find a 7-foot-1 athlete like that and he's the only 7-footer we have. Especially if we're planning on making a run into the playoffs, we're going to need size to compete with Portland, San Antonio and the Lakers. I'm not sure that would help us.''
there's no way any hornets fan can sugarcoat this deal. owners like shinn and sarver shouldn't be allowed to have franchises.
who was in charge of the cavs when they religously traded their draft picks over a decade ago?
Wow. I really want the economy to get better. This is really sad. I see the NBA completely falling apart if the economy gets any worse. Teams sacrificing talent for money never ends well. Stupid trade, but if they had to make it, that's just sad. I feel bad for the Hornets fans now. Hate to see trades like these. This could potentially be a very depressing trade deadline.
Also, i just read that the Wizards may be interested in dealing their first round pick this year to save money. This is really bad.
