According to Draft Express (and other media outlets), the Washington Wizards and New Orleans Hornets have swapped players in a trade involving Emeka Okafor, Trevor Ariza, Rashard Lewis and a Draft Pick: “NBA source tells me Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza have been traded to the Washington Wizards for Rashard Lewis and the #46 pick … Rashard Lewis’ 23.8 million dollar contract can be bought out for 13.7 million before July 1st. Trade saves New Orleans around 30 million? New Orleans now has unlimited cap space, in addition to the #1 pick, the #10 pick, and Eric Gordon. Not a bad time to be a Hornets fan. “
