Emeka is 6’10” and 250lbs. So while he doesn’t meet the seven footer status that many nugg fans are looking for (including myself), he would still be solid for defending the paint and rebounding. He has career averages of 10.6 boards and 13.9 points. Here is his NBA page as well with more stats.
Figuring out how contracts fit in with trades hurts my head, so I haven’t done the math on what we could offer N.O. in exchange for him. What I do know is that Pau Gasol won’t be out all season, and sooner or later the nuggs will have to pick up a BIG that can do some rebounding and defending. So my fellow nugg fans, wha-da-ya-say about Okafor?
BTW, the Hornets have been a train wreck since that 58 point pounding we put on them in the playoffs. I’m pretty sure we took their soul that night.
