New Orleans trades Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza to Washington for Rashard Lewis and the #46 pick. (damn you auto-correct)— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 20, 2012
This has been confirmed by multiple NBA writers. While you might think this has little to do with the Mavs, Okafor has been a Mavs trade rumor for at least three years now. Plus, the Hornets just shed a ton of payroll (Lewis' deal expires after this year and they could always cut him) to resign Eric Gordon...who would have looked nice in a Dallas uniform.
