Short & Quick

So the Bobcats and the Hornets have completed a deal that has me baffled. Not sure what either team is trying to accomplish with this trade, but the Bobcats are sure to have new employees come this winter. Tyson Chandler and Emeka Okafor switched teams and but nothing else. If you do take a closer look,  I suppose the Hornets got the better end of the deal, meaning Okafor hasn’t missed as many games as Tyson has in the last two years. But then again, maybe the Bobcats did, with trading for a more versatile center who once lead the NBA in offensive rebounding. They are about the same age and the contracts pretty much match, so why did this deal go through? Only answer is that Larry Brown is running the show in Bobcat town and it is clear to him and now everyone else in the league, the players that he had weren’t/aren’t the players he wants to make this team more successful than the previous years, though that is not that hard since the Bobcats weren’t that good. In a shakeup of personnel, only one member of the Bobcat was from the expansion team. This deal does make the Hornets look they can contend more in the West, but certainly not enough to get them past other powerhouses. But I suppose this was a sign to CP3 that the team is looking for him to lead in the future which means they want him to stay. With that said though, looks like the summer season is still strong in progress. Next on the list are the free agents that still don’t have a team yet and Lamar Odom, who everyone is watching where he will land.
