A primed defensive player, Okafor seems like a perfect fit for the Warriors.
The Hornets are in turmoil, and if the team continues to lose, we could see a fire sale from the franchise. This creates a perfect opportunity for the Warriors to pick up a bonafide defensive prowess in Okafor.
The 2005 Rookie of the Year's scoring and rebounding have taken a hit this season, but that could be attributed to Chris Kaman pushing him for playing time. Granted, Dan Gilbert and David Stern won't let the NBA-owned Hornets part with the former first-round pick frugally, so the Warriors will have to give up some young talent in return.
Pros: Physical low-post defender, shot blocker, strong rebounder.
Cons: Can have trouble scoring, will come at a high price, big contract (three years, $12.6 million)
Hornets get: Biedrins, Klay Thompson, Ekpe Udoh, Jenkins, future first-round pick
Warriors get: Okafor, salary cap throw-in
