Chandler, Wilcox swapped

Description
In a deal that appears to be mostly financially-driven, the Hornets sent Tyson Chandler to their once stand-in hometown of Oklahoma City for Chris Wilcox, Joe Smith, and the draft rights to DeVon Hardin.

I think in a pure basketball sense, it’s a good move for both teams.  Obviously, the Hornets may have lost the value end of it, but they get back a saavy veteran and a guy who can hold his own down low.  Chandler was having a bad season anyway, and Wilcox hasn’t been getting off the pine.

Fantasy-wise, Chandler will start in OKC, sending Nick Collison to the bench.  He takes a big hit in value and Nenad Krstic becomes droppable in every league.  Of course, either could see minutes at the four, but it won’t likely be many.

As for New Orleans, Wilcox will just take Chandler’s place in the starting lineup.  Smith will likely back up David West, and Hilton Armstrong will continue to see his limited minutes backing up Wilcox.

Big winner?  Wilcox, because he’ll actually get to play some minutes.
