Bobcats will be able to move his expiring contract in 2010 for something. I think Chandler is here a year and then moved for something else.
correct me if Im wrong brad, but Chandler's contract will expire after this first year unless he picks up his player option for the last year at 12.2 mill. So he could opt out of his contract after next year, and the bobcats will not be able to trade him. If this happens though, the bobcats will have some big money to spend on FAs next offseason, and Nazrs contract will be an expiring contract to move.

I kinda want to keep Nazi just in case Chandler can't play although he doesn't want to play 3rd fiddle behind Diop. I still can't understand the logic when they were just complaining about the lack of scoring from our post players.
Chandler when healthy is a beast. I hope he is well...

I guess my point is I see more of Zo in Chandler then I do in Oak. More passion and that aggression plus he can run the floor and is a better finisher then Oak is. He actually catches passes that are thrown too him and tries too dunk on people hard. Really how many times have you seen him bobble a alley or get his poo blocked that alone should get the fans in charlotte more excited this team will run more and still have some pretty good Defence.

1st = Oak avg. more points then chandler because he took more shots. This team force the ball down too Oak too try too get him a offensive game. It didn't work. Plus he was always the 1st or 2nd option on many plays. I promise he won't avg. more point with the hornets because he will be like the 4-5 or 6 best offensive options on your team.
1st you have Cp3, David west gets all the post up plays and you still have Peja and Rasual Butler. Where does Oak get his points? Wait a minute the same way Chandler did alley and put backs. The problem with that is Oak is a bad finisher and has the worst hands. All those great passes that CP3 threw too Chandler Oak will bobble or drop and ruin the alley opp or play. Chandler foot work and athletic moves will be something you will miss.
2nd = you have already seen the data about injuries and games played so no need to go into that.
3rd = Your team won't be able too run as well with Oak as your center as you did with chandler. Chandler moves better then Oak. You will find this out soon.
4th = You will have a log jam in the middle cause 1st Oak is not good on Pick and roll. Plus he can't shoot more then 9-10 feet away from the rim since you already have David West in the post. You won't have no room in the lane for drives and slashes too the basket making your team a outside shooting team. I hope you like too live and die by the jumper.
