Trade: Tyson Chandler to the Thunder

by Marcel Mutoni

Besieged by injuries all season long, Tyson Chandler’s year has just gone from crappy to ultra-crappy.

Welcome to Oklahoma City, Tyson. We hope you enjoy your stay here. From Thunder Ramblings:

The Thunder has acquired center Tyson Chandler from New Orleans in exchange for Chris Wilcox and Joe Smith, according to a league source with knowledge of the negotiations.

The Thunder will also include the draft rights to Devon Hardin, the 50th overall pick in the 2008 draft.

As Wilcox and Smith are both set to come off the books this summer, this can reasonably be classified as a cash-saving move for the Hornets.
