depends on what you want.
you may be able to product change the slate into chase sapphire preferred but the freedom probably would have a better chance. don't ask me why, however, you can ask for the slate first before freedom.
if you do this, you won't be able to qualify for the reason everyone seems to want CSP. the bonus.
if I were you I would apply in branch versus online if you want that bonus, because in branch the app will only require you to spend 2k to get the 40k pts, but online its 3k. that's a difference of spending about 667 a month to 1k a month just to get the bonus.
you can have 3 cc with chase, sounds like you're worried about your score taking a hit, don't worry, as long as you don't apply for cc left and right it won't last too long.
if it was me, I would apply for the chase sapphire preferred, afterwards I would ask if we can close the slate since it doesn't do that, to see if they can apply that CL over to sapphire upping' the CL.
If you don't are about the points see if you can get a product change of slate to chase sapphire preferred, I know slate can go to freedom and freedom can go to chase sapphire preferred (as long as there is no funny business like it was another card that got converted to slate, the system then probably makes it a bit difficult cos the rep telling you whether they can PC is based on the drop down menu)
so if they can't do slate to CSP, maybe get your freedom to CSP and slate to Freedom and move the CL around if needed
