Default chandler for okafor deal brewing?

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=4359609

Quote:
The Hornets and Bobcats are in advanced discussions on a trade that would send center Tyson Chandler to Charlotte in exchange for fellow big man Emeka Okafor, according to NBA front-office sources.

It was not immediately known if the teams are ready to complete the swap -- or if the deal would expand to include other players or teams -- but sources close to the process said talks featuring Chandler and Okafor as the main components have been ongoing since late last week.

tale of the tape:
okafor:
d.o.b: 9/28/1982
'08-09: 82 games 13.2 ppg 10.1 rpg 1.7 bpg 56% fg 18.01 PER
Contract: due $10.5 million, $11.5 million, $12.5 million, $13.5, $14.5 through 2013-14 season

chandler:
d.o.b: 10/2/1982
'08-09: 45 games 8.8 ppg 8.7 rpg 1.2 spg 56.5% fg 13.44 PER
Contract: due $11.9 next season, has a player option for $12.8 million in 2010-11

To get out from under Emeka's contract? He seems overpaid and declining. TC has a year or two left on his deal.

He also makes an ass load of money. TC will take a load off their cap space in the long run.

I wish Dallas could get in on this, Emeka Okafor is the missing piece here.

I guess they do not care about losing.

Chandler is worse than Emeka in everything and is injured 90% of the time.

100% true, which makes me wonder why new orleans is in the mix when all i have heard about them is how they are struggling financially.

Last time they had a reliable center they almost went to the WCF. I think with Emeka they have a chance to win something.

Okafor fits in Larry Browns scheme so good too all the Bobcats need is a go to guy on there team that will hit the big shots late in games ...

Yes, but Emeka is way better than every center they have right now. So I think it's better for them to pay 12-14 mil for Emeka than 11-12 mil for a 8/8 injury prone center. That's probably what they are thinking.
