Okafor to the Kings for Kenny Thomas?
 
Lost season for New Orleans. :yawn:


Quote:

A source with knowledge of the situation says the Kings are discussing a trade with New Orleans that would send Kenny Thomas to the Hornets and bring center Emeka Okafor to Sacramento.

The deal would be ideal for the Hornets, as Thomas' expiring contract worth $8.7 million is just the kind of contract that would trim their enormous payroll. The question, of course, is whether the Kings see Okafor as a big man solution worth the five years and approximately $62 million left on his deal.

wow... they are in the pits.
that okafor trade is looking horrible now.
what a waste.

This could be the beginning of a firesale.

The Hornets should at least ask for Spencer Hawes to be thrown in.

Snooch 11-14-2009 07:46 PM

Okafor should not go to Sacramento, they have a nice young front court already.

Okafor would only take minutes away from Hawes and that is a mistake.

Snooch 11-14-2009 07:47 PM

Amir and Banks for Posey.

You're absolutely right, but only if Hawes is staying in Sacramento. I can't imagine the Hornets would do this deal straight up. Assuming this deal happens, it will be interesting to see if other players are tossed in.

The Kings have one of the greatest group of fans in the league. They deserve a good team and Okafor would help them in the right direction. If Hawes wants PT he should earn it. I think its a crazy notion to not look to bring in strong talent because it takes away from a young player's minutes. Hawes isn't getting big minutes now as it is on a poor team. Let him earn time.
