Rasheed For Tyson?

-Sports illustrated Magazine is suggesting the Hornets make the below trade:

C-F Rasheed Wallace to the Hornets; C Tyson Chandler to the Pistons
New Orleans’s payroll next season is $77 million, threatening owner George Shinn with a $6 million luxury-tax bill that he can’t afford. The Hornets would drop below the threshold when Wallace’s $13.9 million salary comes off the books this summer, and they can claim that he improves their immediate title hopes by providing a versatile scoring option to go with Chris Paul and David West. rasheedwallaceIn Chandler, Detroit would gain a longer version of Ben Wallace to protect the rim—without giving up Allen Iverson’s expiring contract.tyson

I’ve been pitching trade ideas at the Hornets for weeks…..and I wish I’d have thought of this one!

I love Tyson Chandler…and if I were calling the shots it would be difficult for me to move him…but after watching this team strugle offensively…I think this deal is good and should be done.

  1. This sounds like a good trade for the Hornets to make! 🙂

  2. Tyson has definitely had a rough season. His talent has def been questioned. The only problem with rasheed wallace is foul trouble. He gets into it early and he does have a temper. However he undoubtedly has a lot of skill and we know he is a capable scoring and blocking threat. If we plan on going to a championship this year then i do agree this trade needs to be made even though i’ll be sad to see tyson go.
