View Full Version : Get Chris Paul instead of Arenas

Three Or Five Years?
Chris Paul | Hornets

Lance Young said Chris Paul has gone back and forth in recent weeks, trying to decide whether to accept the five-year or three-year deal. It's all but certain, though, Paul will re-sign with the Hornets.

"We have obviously gone over this a lot," Young said. "He's kind of gone back and forth if he wants to do the longer deal or the shorter deal.

"Obviously, locking into that security, making $18 million to $20 million on that last year is pretty hard to turn down. Also, he doesn't want to lock himself in where he has got the next six years where he's with New Orleans without knowing what exactly is going to happen."

"One of our top priorities all summer remains getting Chris signed long term," Hornets owner George Shinn said Monday. "He's not only the best point guard in the league and an asset to our team, but also to our New Orleans community and the entire state of Louisiana." -- The Times-Picayune

Lets offer Chris Paul the 80-100M contract (close to max) for 5 years. He could be the cornerstone of the franchise.

I dont think Arenas would help us much.

Wishful thinking, but I doubt we'd land CP3

Can we close this thread???

Chris Paul is not a Free Agent. He can only be extended by the Hornets, which is happening when he comes back from the Olympics.

Only an idiot would think we have a shot at the best PG in basketball, when the Hornets will sign him to a max deal in three years.
