In the wake of the failed trade of O.J. Mayo to Indiana for Josh McRoberts, I remembered another recent failed trade involving Tyson Chandler in 2009. Chandler had been traded from New Orleans to OKC, but the deal fell through for health reasons. In what we all hope is a blueprint for things to come in Memphis, however, the Hornets then went on a run, with Chandler dunking Chris Paul lobs every which way.
So for all you post-trade junkies, here’s a story about the aftermath of Tyson Chandler’s no-trade. Enjoy!
Although it is worth mentioning that, of course, Chandler did get traded to Charlotte for Emeka Okafor . . . and is now anchoring the middle in Dallas.
