Wizards Introduce Emeka Okafor And Trevor Ariza Friday Afternoon

The Washington Wizards formally introduced their two newest players to the D.C. media Friday afternoon at the Verizon Center.

Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza were acquired by the Wizards Wednesday afternoon in a trade that sent Rashard Lewis and the No. 46 pick to the New Orleans Hornets. Below are a couple of highlights from the press conference.

Okafor knows a big city when he sees it, having played his college ball in the dazzling metropolis of Storrs, Conn.
