The Washington Wizards have reached an agreement with the New Orleans Hornets on a trade to acquire Hornets center Emeka Okafor, according to sources close to the process.
The Wizards will get Okafor and Hornets forward Trevor Ariza for Rashard Lewis and Washington's No. 46 pick in next week's draft.
Contracts aside the Wizards just got a lot better. Okafor is still a solid center and Ariza brings more to the table than Lewis, who was never the same after getting busted for HGH use back in 2009 shortly after the Magic defeated the KG-less Celtics in 7 games.
