It has been confirmed after a week of speculation the Charlotte Bobcats and the New Orleans Hornets have come to a deal, where Charlotte will send off Emeka Okafor to the Hornets for Tyson Chandler. Both Chandler and Okafor were second- overall picks in their Draft Class, Chandler was drafted out of highschool and as you know Emeka Okafor lead the UCONN team to a National Championship and has been an key figure in Charlotte's 5-year history. Emeka is another top draft pick that the Bobcats have shipped out of town earlier this year Adam Morrison was traded and became a L.A Laker,  Sean May was released and became a Sacramento King, and Brandon Wright he is now a Golden State Warrior.

Tell me what you think about the trade, post a comment.
