Report: Bargnani & Parker Offered for Okafor
 
Apparently heard on WFNZ Sports Radio 610 in Charlotte by a RealGM poster. :confused:

So, take it with a grain of salt till we find some links. :(

Anyhow, obviously there would be some other fillers because the salaries don't match (at least I don't think they do), but needless to say interesting. :)

Dr. J. Naismith 02-18-2008 05:26 PM

This is the sports station who apparently just reported this about 20 minutes ago. :confused:

Still could be a bunch of rubbish. :(

Benzo 02-18-2008 05:34 PM

NO FUCKING WAY>>>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I will cease to be a raptor fan if some nonsense like this went down.

Dr. J. Naismith 02-18-2008 05:36 PM

Yeah, it's probably some nitwit who's bored this afternoon. :(

In any case, if it were real where do I sign? Buh-bye to the big Gino hello Okafor. ;)

Benzo 02-18-2008 05:40 PM

Your fucking nuts...if that name was AK47, I may think about it.

Hell I wouldnt even trade Bargs for Okur straight up...I understand..Mehmet is good...but it is a sideways move.

Dr. J. Naismith 02-18-2008 05:43 PM

Meh ... we'd get in an arguement for nothing because this trade has BS written all over it, but Okafor would compliment this team much better than Bargs will ever. Andrea's decent play over the last weeks has everyone excited again. Only a couple weeks ago everyone (with the exception of you of course) were pretty much riding him hard. :haha:

Famous last words my friend.

My statement stands for both of them...Now if it was Gerald Wallace's name......or AK47.....bah you get my point.

Claudius 02-18-2008 06:27 PM

Okafor would be a GREAT addition to this squad because all he loves to do is rebound and block shots. But really he's an over priced Reggie Evans, so it is worth losing one of our smartest players AND a young big?

Thug 02-18-2008 07:47 PM

You've gotta be kidding me. Hell no do we lose both Parker and Bargnani to an injury riddled bust.

INSIDER 02-18-2008 08:19 PM

i'd actually entertain this deal.
if we could keep parker and send them kapono or delfino, i'd be all over it.

okafor would be HUGE at C for us.
we'd actually get rebounds.

Belsius 02-18-2008 08:41 PM

Even though bargs is not even near to Okafor right now, I think Bargs can become an special player, wich, as good as he is, I cant see it happening with Okafor.

Dont want to trade him.

Krazy Ivan 02-18-2008 08:50 PM

Okafur, although, talented is also fragile and undersized to play true centre so Raps will, again, have two talented young forwards who are best suited to play power forward not centre.

He has qualifying offer for next year at 7+ million but will demand 3+ year @ 12+ million per year contract after that for sure... Raps don't have that kind of money.

At the end they would ship Parker thus making their hole at shooting guard position even bigger and with all money gone to Okafur no chance to close it.

Also he is Bobcats young player of the future and I don't see them shipping him although with moron like MJ running the show over there it could happen... after all he drafted Kwame at #1...

Ball Don't Lie 02-18-2008 09:53 PM

You people are fucking insane.

Okafor>>>Wallace and AK.

Hes averaging 13+11 with 2 blocks on 53%+ excellent help and post D. In a couple years IMO we'll be fully convinced that Bosh+Bargs will never take us deep into the playoffs because they cant rebound when it matters(or Bosh defend for that matter). BC will have to make a decision who he thinks is the better fit at PF and I dont think theres any question who itll be.

Can any of you honestly say you're satisfied with this teams frontcourt D and rebounding? Comeon. I'm maybe Bargs' biggest supporter since hes come in, even through the rough times this year, I love his game, but Okafor+Bosh+ BC's creativity would give us Finals potential in 2 years max plus a long time to come after that.

Okafors only in his 3rd year too and has played in every game this year so far if I'm not mistaken.

Him and Bosh would be entering their primes together and their styles mesh perfectly. I'd do this deal in an instant, too bad CHA wouldnt.

Ball Don't Lie 02-18-2008 10:06 PM

Looking back into the OP's post history he hadnt posted since NOV 2007, and the posts that he had then basically included him making up scenarios with Bargs to get Okafor. Looks like a false alarm unfortunately.

Belsius 02-18-2008 10:12 PM

I agree Okafor>Wallace but not AK47 IMO.

Im not satisfied with the team at all, but common I think it would be too early to give up on any of our players.

BUt Thriller between Okafor and Bargs, who do you think it COULD be a better player?
Again, I say bargs can be a really special player and it would be a mistake to get rid of him in his sophomore year, and specially when he is starting to show some signs of improvement

pimpery 02-18-2008 10:13 PM

hehe i know some1 that would be happy if it was true... time to ship the euro trash!!

Thriller for Prime Minister. :clapping:

I like Bargnani although he frustrates me alot, but we'd be stupid not to make such a deal if it was in fact on the table. I'm not entirely sold on teaching this old dog new tricks. Bargnani albeit is trying at centre, he's too much of the mold of a SF. I guess I don't have the patience to wait for him to develop. I'd love a Bosh-Okafor front count. Hands down the strongest front court in the East. :D

Yup, which I alluded to earlier. But seeing how we're not the RealGM and not 100 pages deep on this topic, I thought I'd leave it open because it would make for some good conversation. :)

Ball Don't Lie 02-18-2008 10:44 PM

Yeah.

The people that said no to this trade are clinically insane.

We should come back to this thread when we cant get rebounds and stops late in games in the playoffs.
