Personally, I want nothing to do with these dudes. Joe Johnson and Emeka Okafor.
There's the idea of Curry for Okafor, but would the Hornets realistically do this trade and sign off their season? Would you?
Is Okafor worth half of his obese contract? Or is our judgement clouded by interior defence deprivation?
Is Johnson capable of doing any more than he's already done? Is he even the best player on his team? Adding a vet to a roster in dire need of building direct from the bottom is a ****ty move as far as I'm concerned. Especially if McGrady's legitimately prepared to accept a lower wage next season. That in itself is worth it's own thread considering his luck with injury.

This guy isn't worth the salary. A good player holding an hourglass counting down his time and effectiveness.

He can block shots and rebound reasonably well. Whatever!!!!!! He's an offensive monger that couldn't even replace Tyson Chandler's effectiveness. Charlotte ousted this dude for a reason: Cash vs Game.
Just saying, I for one would be suffering from the potential anti-climatic signing of either of these 2. More so Okafor than Johnson.
There is however, the potential to retain the MLE and play Lee and Okafor side by side. I could deal with that, but still........Myeh.
