Re: Bobcats, Hornets in advanced discussions for Emeka Okafor, Tyson Chandler trade
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.
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.
