Former Sonics Finally Get a Top-Flight Center

If the Sonics were still here, today we'd be celebrating their canny acquisition of seven-foot rebounding machine Tyson Chandler from the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Chris Wilcox, Joe Smith, and DeVon Hardin (i.e., cap space-clearing flotsam). Chandler, despite struggling with injuries and consistency after enjoying a career year last season, is exactly what the Thunder/Sonics have lacked since, well...forever (Jack Sikma, the team's lone great center, wasn't known for his defense, and James Donaldson wasn't the athlete Chandler is). It pains us to say it, but this is one rebuilding franchise that appears to really have its shit together.
