Emeka Okafor was dealt to the Hornets along with a first round pick for Tyson Chandler on Tuesday.

"We looked at this trade as an opportunity to improve our team," Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins said. "Tyson brings that unique level of athleticism in a 7-footer that puts us in a position to compete night in and night out with the other quality centers in the league."

No other media is reporting that and I am sure it would have been brought up at the press conference.

Plus the Bobcats do not have a 1st pick to give up, it was traded to Denver last year (who traded it to Minny this year) and a team is not allowed to trade two 1st's for two straight years.
