Okafor has 5 years left, Chandler 2.

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...

this has got Larry Brown written all over it. He must see something we dont when it comes to Okafor to make this move.

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

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 He was traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder last season, but the deal was rescinded when Chandler didn't pass a physical.

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.
