Interesting deal. I know that NO was interested in Marion before we traded him.

Good trade both ways. Chandler is a hard working rebounder that the Thunder need to help build that franchise and gives them a core of Westbrook,Durant,Green,Kristic,Chandler, and DJ White when he's healthy.

NO needed bench help and more scoring down low as Chandler was more of a alley-oop scorer.

Knew Tyson would get moved..hopefully he wont go back to sucking like he was in Chicago.Starting to look more and more like Chris Paul is just a rental.

The economy is just that bad.

Chandler is a guy the Thunder haven't had since they were back in Seattle.

Not a bad move for them.

Pure salary dump....they give up any chance of competing in the west just so they can get below the luxury tax next season and the owner can save a few million. I'd hope the fans see crap like this and walk out. Let the owners know that it'll hurt them more to intentionally malign a good team than they'd save in league taxes.

Hopefully Chandler does more for the Thunder than McIlvane did for the Sonics.

What's hilarious is in a link on the right side of that page that links to another page that says Cassell was traded for a 2nd rd pick on 2015.

Could that pick any more later in life? :crazy:

They must have really wanted to dump his salary.

Definitely, and a horrible trade for the Hornets. It seems they may have given up on their season a bit early this year.

Incredible..Hornets tried to dupe Thunder.Thunder in turn dupe Hornets.Looks like Chandlers injury is worse than previously thought.

What now?Too funny.

What a weird string of events. Has anyone ever heard of a basketball player suffering from turf toe? Apparently hes been dealing with this for a couple years now and its never fully healed.
