08:08 AM ET 09.08 | Free agent Lou Amundson has become a somewhat hot property of late. Amundson had three teams coming after him this offseason: the Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Hornets and Indiana Pacers. According to New York's Newsday, the 6-foot-9, 238-pound forward will end up with the Hornets, his fourth team in five seasons. Amundson averaged 4.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 0.4 assists per game last season for the Phoenix Suns. The word from Newsday is that once Amundson says what he's going to do, the Pacers and Warriors will start squabbling over Earl Barron, the seven-footer who isn't expected to be brought back by the New York Knicks.

Hornets are in a dire situation with Chris Paul so all their moves will be scrutinized. Subtracting Collison and adding Ariza and Amundson is not necessarily progress. And they expect a big year from Okafor? Lol... looks like the GM is setting up a scape goat already in case things work don't out and Paul leaves them in peace. Dude's been in the league for years and hasn't done ****... why will they expect more than he's already given them.... the guy has already peaked having played with Chris Paul... he is what he is - Emeka Okafor!

You must be outta your mind to put Amare big STAT Stoudemire and pogo stick Okafor on the same echelon. Injuries are part of the game and every player - scrub or star is predisposed to it. Sean May just got cut and almighty Tracy McGrady had to settle for Detroit. As for Tim Duncan it looks like someone stole his talent... what's your point.

I was pissed Knicks didn't bring back Earl but watching Mozgov play I now know why. Just watch US/Russia game tomorrow and y'll agree with me we got the real deal.

not comparing talent man to man (okafor to STAT) but noting the zenith of that talent...Okafor reached his with CP3 and Stat reached his with Nash....to expect more with Felton is ...you'll see soon enough won't cha'...

I won't complain if he scores more without Nash. However he won't be a bust unless he gets hurt. Plus given the hole Knicks have been in the past decade all he has to do is get us into the playoffs and the statue of liberty is getting replaced. Okafor on the other hand is a bust. You can't debate that.

If you score so much on peeps sometimes you just let go to feel how it feels to get scored on. Defense is a team effort and who are you to blame Amare for not being a defensive player... the only defensive coach he has is Porter.... but D'Antoni's style which is great for Amare will win everything but championships... but that's OK. There's a reason D'Antoni's contract expires the season we can go after Chris Paul. I can only hope our coked up owner doesn't extend it prematurely like he did with Isaiah... we can't make the same mistakes moving forward...

Did a Knicks fan really just talk crap about the Hornets' moves? Seriously, you're a Knicks fan. You should know better.

Carmelo wants to play in New York, at least. Maybe you should go ahead and start rooting for the Nets.

Dont take this wrong, cause I do like okafur, and he does what you say.....But, the guys NEVER been in the playoffs......never.....after this long in the league, clearly there's a problem there

He played for an expansion team. I personally wish we had TC still, but that argument is kind of silly. You could argue that he doesn't match up with true centers, but the playoff argument is silly.

I love how you Knicks fans always have some savior in waiting that never actually happens. Lebron's going to the KNICKS!!!!

How does it make you feel when all the teams coming after you are well below .500?
