Jordan can't possibly be this dumb. There has to be draft pick or something involved.

Damnit Dunleavy. Deal Camby for Chandler, and then Chandler for Okafor. I'd love a Griffin/Okafor front court with Jordan being the third big

Tyson Chandler did something to anger George Shin, and Shin has wanted to move Chandler ever since.

This deal is at best a wash, or it is simply trade talk intended to motivate both players.

Default Bobcats, Hornets in advanced discussions for Emeka Okafor, Tyson Chandler trade

Per ESPN.com

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.

The Bobcats will be giving up the only starting center in franchise history for Chandler, who has been plagued by a left toe injury. Chandler played in only 32 games last season and a trade to Oklahoma City was rescinded because of concerns over the injury.

The potential deal comes less than a year after Okafor signed a six-year, $72 million deal with the Bobcats.

Great deal for New Orleans. Okafor is better offensively and he's no worse defensively plus he's been in the NBA for a shorter amount of time which could make him effective for longer.

Can we just contract Charlotte and Memphis already? Both franchises are completely inept and pointless.

that would be a great deal for the Hornets. Chandler is broken.

i'm pretty sure this makes no sense for either team.. it was just a few months ago that the hornets were supposedly cash-strapped but okafor is a longer/larger contract.

as for chandler.. he's older and injury prone.

this may make the hornets a little better NOW.. but it can't be worth it.

Let's go ahead and make this trade more ridiculous.

Okafor/Radmanovic/Diop

Chandler/Peja/Julian Wright.


omg I'm so cool.
