    Wilcox has no post up game at all. Chandler has a better post up game than him.

    I remember when Wilcox first went over to the Sonics - he was killing the rest of the year...I guess when they got better players around him - he cooled off.

    I like this trade for a few reasons.

    1) We get further away from the luxury tax and all the joy that comes with it.
    2) We trade away a good player but get two above avg. players giving us depth.
    3) While both guys do come off the books after the year sign and trades are options, giving us even more flecibility.
    4) We are getting 2 first rounders and that gives us plenty of ammo to move up.
    5) Hilton Armstrong can really develop further.

    and that has no effect on your ability to sign free agents, other than their actual cost

    how are you 100% certain that we are definitely getting 2 #1's, an article on espn says that OK lost no draft picks to new orleans

    we could have very much killed our team by dealing him to a team already on the rise, or really made some head room in building a better team.

    1. agreed

    2. we get 2 average players for half a season

    3. sign and trades? if we did that #1 would be moot, fyi, and it won't happen

    4. no major media outlet, including the hornets website, says anything about a first rounder, let alone 2

    5. he has little room to develop based on his athleticism and age, and he's garbage otherwise. relying more on hilton is bad for the team

    I trust my boy eleven. If he says we are getting 2 firsts, we are getting 2 firsts.

    trading his salary hurts our ability to build a better team

    the hornets, TP, ESPN, and oklahoma papers have not included this information

    well i trust the facts, and the facts say that the deal has already been completed, with no first rounders

  20. #270
    Guys dont tell UNO we didn't get any picks!!!!!! Some people still believe in Santa! LOL jk man

  21. #271
    eleven, you sure we getting two 1st rounders?

    how does it hurt our chances? We were going to have to trade him anyway, and if anything we just gave the okc blunder a $12 mil contract next year, and $13 mil the year after.

    if these 2 combined were worth tyson chandler (and only because their contracts are expiring), what are we going to sign and trade them for?

    If we don't have two first rounders than scratch that.

    Thank you Hornets FO!

    Thanks for bringing in Chris Wilcox... alot of folks don't know how nice this guy's game is. I watch alot of games on the League Pass, and for the last few years Wilcox has been a silent beast in Seattle and now OKC.

    I was hoping there was a way we could swing a trade for him, and now that he's a Hornet I couln't be more happy.

    Joe Smith is Lagniappe... but he still has a nice post game. The 1st rouder(s) are also nice.

    I think we have finally struck gold, and now we have COMPITENT inside players. both can play with their backs to the basket, and Wilcox can run the floor as good/better than TC.

    I'll miss TC... the dude is a class act, but we've made our team better with this trade.

    Time to make our push an get back on top in the Southwest.
