After the first Tyson Chandler trade for expiring contracts their were rumblings that he would be traded for free, well that didn’t happen. He was traded today for Emeka Okafor. I like this trade for both teams. The Bobcats wanted a true center and they got that in Chandler. As for the Hornets, Okafor is the more effeicient player in the trade.
The Timberwolves acquired Chucky Atkins and Damien Wilkins for Etan Thomas and 2nd round picks. I love this trade for the Wolves because Atkins is the best player in the trade. At times Atkins is lights out and can put up 30 points. That is his only positive though, he may have a solid assists ratio but he is a horrible passer and his defense is crap. A doll can play better defense than him. Thomas is a solid reserve forward/center.
