The Charlotte Bobcats have traded their very first draft pick in franchise history,
Emeka Okafor to the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Tyson Chandler.
Now to see if
one sticks. Just before the trade deadline last season, Chandler was traded to Oklahoma City, but the trade was rescinded by the Thunder after Chandler failed his physical.

Okafor is 14/11 in his career, younger, and he didn't fail a physical in the past season. This seems like one of those Larry Brown falling in love, then out of love with a player situations. Chandler will probably be in his doghouse by Thanksgiving, while Okafor will be on a team contending for a division title.
So, will Portland get killed for taking the big guy *this* time? (Bowie/Jordan v. Oden/Durant) Of course not, but I'm just glad my Sonics snagged the 2nd pick and will be happy with whomever we draft.
