Possible Trade Partner?


I was skimming over the depth charts of teams the past few days, and I realized a team that would line up nicely for us to trade some of our young pieces. I'm talking about the New Orleans Hornets.... They have a terrible starting 5. They have 0 PF's on their team. They have 2 vet C's and nothing behind them. They have 4 SF's. They have 2 PG's, both of which are not very good.

First, we'll look at their roster:

PG: Jarrett Jack, Terrico White

SG: Eric Gordon, Marco Belinelli

SF: Trevor Ariza, Al-Farouq Amino, Quincey Pondexter, Patrick Ewing, Jr.

PF: Emeka Okafor???

C: Chris Kaman, Brian Butch

I think it's fairly obvious the only positions they're comfortable with are SG and C. SF isn't bad either. But they could for sure use an upgrade at PF and PG. I am proposing a trade that would help both clubs.

MN receives: Emeka Okafor (he's 29), 1st round pick (top 10 protected 2012, unprotected 2013)

NOH receives: Anthony Randolph, Nikola Pekovic, Luke Ridnour, and a future 2nd round pick.

MN Line-up:

PG: Rubio, Barea

SG: Johnson, Ellington/Lee

SF: Beasley, Williams/Tolliver

PF: Love, Williams/Tolliver

C: Okafor, Milicic, Miller

NOH Line-up:

PG: Ridnour, Jack

SG: Gordon, Belinelli

SF: Ariza, Amino

PF: Randolph, ??? FA

C: Kaman, Pekovic


Who says no? Which team improves more? Thoughts???
