It won't go through. Chandler was traded las year to the Thunder but did not pass his physical. This is just a rumor.

I'm thinking we're offering more than Chandler, but what? Julian Wright? A 1st round pic? The Bobcats FO isn't dumb enough to just swap TC for Okafor? All we needed was a legit center to get back to the top of the West.

The only way I would agree to this trade, is if they added one of these guys to the deal: David West, Rasual Butler, Chris Paul (I wish), James Posey, or Peja Stojakovic.

I wonder how much time Chandler has left on his deal (and how much). The salaries have to match pretty closely for this deal to go down.

I wish I knew more about the Hornets and their salary cap situation.

Okafor, while a solid defender and rebounder, never has been able to be an offensive presence. I think that's the one thing the Bobcats are lacking -- an offensive force down low. Can Chandler be that? I think so.

Two years at about 22mil combined.

Chandler has no offensive games, just put backs, garbage dunks, and alley-oops from CP3.

He's a walking doubl-edouble when healthy, the problem is he has a degenerative condition on his toe. It's not going to get better.

The Bobcats owe Okafor at least 60 million. Perhaps that's the incentive in moving him.

I am interested in hearing more about the details of this deal. Okafor is never going to give anything offensively down low (we know this, he has been here his whole career). Obviously, Chandler's ailments need to be looked at very closely, but I think I like the idea in principal.

Chandler can opt out of his contract after this season, which would leave the Bobcats with a big hole at C but with quite a bit of salary cap relief.

He's not opting out, he'll never get a bigger contract than he has snow.

sounds like a straight up trade (player swap) and it also sounds almost final. i don't like it one bit....

If the deal goes through as it is now, I don't know if I can stand behind the Cats any longer...

It's done!!!!!!!!

[quote]The Charlotte Bobcats have agreed to trade center Emeka Okafor -- the team's first collegiate draft choice -- to the New Orleans Hornets for center Tyson Chandler, a Bobcats source confirmed to the Observer.

The deal isn't expected to become official until tuesday, the source said.

Okafor, taken by the bobcats out of connecticut with the second overall pick of the nba draft in their expansion season of 2004, averaged a double-double -- 14.0 points, 10.7 rebounds -- in five seasons in Charlotte. He has five years remaining on a $72 million contract and played in all 82 games for bobcats in each of their past two seasons.

The 7-foot-1 Chandler averaged 8.8 point and 8.7 rebounds for the Hornets last season. He was limited to 45 games because of a toe injury. He was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, but the deal was rescinded when Chandler didn't pass a physical.[/quote]

The team has to be blown up. I am not sure that this was the right way to go about it, but who knows.

We were all pissed when the Bobs traded JRich-but it worked. Maybe this will be the same? It was clear listening to Brown's post-season conference that he doubts Oke's ability to improve offensively.

wow. I hope this is not a straight up trade. Maybe another expiring contract can be thrown in by the hornets.

Its still Bobcats ride or die over here. As of right now I dont like the move, I'll be awaiting the press conference when Tyson gets here. This frees up a huge amount of cap space, but Tyson is really gonna have to stay healthy for us if we want to compete.
