Emeka Okafor traded to Wizards

The Wiz get Okafor and Ariza for nothing.....New Orleans cleans the slate to build around Davis and Gordon. I assume this means the Wiz are hoping Charlotte passes on Beal because they have nothing on the perimeter and an embarrassment of riches inside. Vesely, Seraphin, Booker, and Blatche backing up Nene and Okafor.

Also sets up the unlikely but possible scenario of the Hornets going after a second max player to team up with Gordon and Davis either this year or the next.
