The fact that we got rid of Chandler for Oak still baffles me
At the time the Hornets staff (and the Thunder's, btw) thought Chandler's foot issue would be re-occurring. He also would end up costing more money. No matter the amount, every penny mattered to Shinn. At the time, there were people who thought the move was a decent one (ahem). Hindsight is 20-20. Chandler to well and is a great defender. He also is expensive.
It would have been great to keep a healthy and productive Chandler and maintain the Paul, West, Chandler core. Of course, at that point ownership and the Walrus had shown little ability to find the right pieces to take them to the next level.
