What an absolutely stupid trade from Charlotte's point of view, if this is true.

This makes sense for Charlotte from the standpoint of Larry Brown at HC, he likes an athletic C who grabs boards and blocks shots at the 5. Ben Wallace in Detroit.Dikembe in Philly.Davis in Indiana.

Okafor is a PF being played at C, hes only 6'9. And his role requires him to pretty much hold down the post against 2 players since Charlotte is playing Diaw at PF.

Charlotte gets out of the final 4 years of Okafor's contract, and takes on the 1 year left on Chandler's contract.

PG Felton
SG Bell
SF Wallace
PF Diaw
C Chandler

That is a very good defensive lineup, and if they add Iverson to provide some scoring on offense they can really surprise people this season.

New Orleans gets Okafor who wont be relied on as much as he was in Charlotte to provide low post scoring, Okafor fills in perfectly for New Orleans at the 5. Hes better on offense than Chandler was, and would excel with a PG like CP3 getting him the ball.

What surprises me...NOT BEING A HOMER but Charlotte and Memphis have owners worth about 750-800 mill....and they are cost cutting and forever under the tax and underachieving...

where as the laker owner Jerry Buss who is worth about 380 million put out a competetive team every year...

and George Shinn who is wort 100 Mill...is also still putting up a team around CP3 with this deal...

Peter holt of San Antonio deserves respect...worth around 80 nill puts up a team worth 76 mill...

I know personal wealth has nothing to do with operating profits and regeneration profits but still...if he went bust all of a sudden he would basically be worth 4 mill.

I thought that the hornets wanted to clear cap space, not take on a 5 year big $$$ contract.

Okafor > Chandler. He still blocks shots, but is much tougher and bigger.

But, Okafor has a long contract. It is fairly new though, and I thought the Bobcats actually liked the deal they gave him. If for some reason they have buyers remorse, this is a financial deal.

Otherwise, there's gotta be more pieces involved. Draft picks, players... something.

if their is a draft pick involved, it's probably going to NO because of the huge contract they're taking.

I obviously like this for the hornets, but shouldn't the Dallas Mavricks be trying to get him too?

i think NOH has another deal in place already. they're looking to shed salary and taking on Okafor's huge contract isnt helping that.

either that or they're trying to surround CP3 with long term players

idk

That's a Horrible Trade.

Chandler is injury prone. Emeka Okafor is going to average 18 ppg and 11 rpg next year because Chris Paul is going to make him better.

Emeka Okafor, David West and Chris Paul = 52 or more wins in the Western Conference.
