Look, it’s no secret now…the Hornets are shopping Tyson Chandler in an attempt to get under the NBA’s luxury tax for next season.
But the big question is: Can the Hornets pick up a good player or players for a post season run…and does that player (or players) have an expiring contract that can come off the Hornets books this summer?
Here are some deals that may work….some of these trades are very very very farfetched…other make sense!

The Hornets need to try their hardest to keep Tyson, West and Paul together. Chris Paul signed a 3year contract with the player option for the 4th year so the organization could keep his core players together. They get rid of one of them without making the team better for a chance at winning, he’ll be gone. And as Byron Scott always says, “that’s the bottom line”.
all these trades aren’t any good
Some of these trades sound farfetched.
