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.
They're the same age. Both born in 1982. Chandler just has more milege since (3 extra nba seasons) due to be drafted straight out of high school.
I don't really get this trade. Perhaps Chandler stays injury free, and flourishes in Larry Brown's system. It's highly unlikely Chandler stays injury free. I probably have better chance of winning the lottery.
Okafor will probably have better offensive numbers because of Chris Paul despite being less offensively challenged than Chandler.
