Default Do the Hornets need a SF?

Would NO be interested in Chicago's Luol Deng & would they be willing to part with Emeka Okafor to get him?

Their contracts are nearly identical & looking at the NO roster, the team seems to be particularly week @ SF. I know Okafor has been playing center but he really seems like a PF to me and since they already have an all-star at that position (David West), I thought Okafor might be expendable if the team got a better player in return.

I had an idea for a three-way deal between NO, Toronto, & Chicago that would enable the Bulls to get Bosh in a sign-n-trade by sending Deng to NO and Okafor to Toronto.

I was curious to whether or not NO fans thought this would be beneficial for them?
(This could also net them a throw-in player and or draft pick, in addition to Deng.)

I could see Deng becoming a solid third scoring option and flourishing from Chris Paul's game.

The Hornets could use another SF. I like Deng but I'd like to see Emeka a little while longer. I'd like to see him play more than 45 games with Chris Paul. If Julian Wright ever lived up to his potential he could solve a problem for the Hornets at the SF position but this guy is running out of time with this team. Peja is getting older and may be gone by the next trade deadline. With Peja possibly leaving at some point, the Hornets can indeed use another SF. Particularly a starting SF.

Knicks has Chandler and Gallo for Okafor... Throw in CP3 and you can have Curry's expirer!
