    This is a very surprising move, and I didn't expect it to happen. I think it was pretty stupid for the Hornets to trade Chandler, since he's one of the best players on that team. I don't think Smith or Wilcox will do better than him.

    The Thunder gain a good player in Chandler that's for sure.

    Eh. I always thought Chandler was only good because of Chris Paul. He's not that dominant at the post and a horrible free throw shooter. He can grab a few rebounds though when he's healthy. I guess OKC has tons of room to improve.

    I agree Chandler is better because of Paul, but I still believe he can put up great numbers without him. I think he's going to help the Thunder is a lot of different ways. Also the Hornets did this, because they wanted to clear up some salary.

    its a good thing for the Hornets that this Chandler failed his physical and this trade fell through, cuz they were being robbed blind in this deal, on the flip side OKC has to be mad now because with Chandler they would have had a lot of young talent in building for success in the future
