With trade speculation swirling around him, Chris Paul said Wednesday that he's open to a trade if the New Orleans Hornets aren't committed to winning championships.

"My first choice is to be in New Orleans,'' Paul said in a telephone interview from London. "I just want to make sure we're committed to winning. If we're not committed to winning and trying to get better so we can contend with the Lakers, the Celtics and all these other top teams, then I'm open to being traded.''

Reports that clubs have been making offers for Paul surfaced earlier this week. Hornets general manager Jeff Bower denied that the club was shopping its three-time all-star point guard, but admitted to having dialogue with other teams concerning "all of our players.'' New Hornets coach Monty Williams said he expects Paul to remain in New Orleans.

-- Chris Paul
Reports that clubs have been making offers for Paul surfaced earlier this week. Hornets general manager Jeff Bower denied that the club was shopping its three-time All-Star point guard, but admitted to having dialogue with other teams concerning "all of our players.'' New Hornets coach Monty Williams said he expects Paul to remain in New Orleans.

But around the league, speculation remains that the Hornets may move Paul. With owner George Shinn's proposed sale to Gary Chouest being delayed for financial reasons, opposing executives believe New Orleans may have to trade Paul and the $50 million owed to him over the next three seasons.

"If George Shinn can't sell the team, I think Chris Paul will be traded," an executive from an Eastern Conference team said. "Shinn's strapped for money. He's going to have to move him."

Paul said he does not have a wish list of teams he'd like to play for and emphasized that his desire is to remain in New Orleans -- as long as the Hornets are doing all they can to compete for a title.

After reaching the second round of the playoffs two years ago, the Hornets have been on the decline and failed to make the postseason last year. Opposing executives aren't convinced the club has the financial resources to build the team into a consistent contender.

"I'm fine with staying in New Orleans, but I want to make sure we're committed to winning," said Paul, whose been lauded for the community work he's done in New Orleans. "I don't want to rebuild. I want to win now. It's nothing personal against the city. I love that city. But my biggest thing is winning."

Paul admitted that the free-agent frenzy surrounding LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and others is making him long to be in the best possible situation in terms of winning.

"I'm friends with D-Wade, LeBron, Chris Bosh, Joe Johnson and all these other free agents," said Paul, who's in London promoting his Brand Jordan sneakers. "I'm watching them try to figure out what they're going to do to put themselves in a position to win championships. I'd love to be a part of that stuff."

The reported offers for Paul have been rich in talent. Orlando has reportedly offered Jameer Nelson and Vince Carter, though Magic GM Otis Smith denied it. And New Jersey, which has had several discussions with the Hornets, has reportedly offered Devin Harris and the No. 3 pick in Thursday's draft. Both trades would give the Hornets good talent and save them money long-term.

While Paul did not say anything about playing with James, it's well-known that the two are close friends who would love to be on the same team. If a club with significant cap room, such as New Jersey, landed Paul, its chances of getting James would certainly increase.

I'd only consider it if he was winning to sign an extension. But in the end, I think you need to give John Wall a shot with that team and Paul needs to go elsewhere.

If the Lakers would throw Bynum in a deal with another solid player, maybe but I don't see them getting rid of Bynum, not to mention that he has been hurt pretty much every season. Plus the Lakers know that Bigs are a lot harder to win without than an all star pg, but yea I would buy that if LA would do that, but I doubt it.

But Parker, they already have in Collison, Jefferson is a nobody that they don't want, and Hill is a decent piece

And ship out Kmart,Brooks,Scola,Hill and the pick.

In the end, I personally believe he'll stay a Hornet. Face it, the Nets offered Devin Harris and the 3rd pick, you won't get much better than that, and the Hornets basically hung the phone up on them. Unless some GM goes out on the town for a night and makes an unbelievable offer for CP, he's staying in New Orleans.

Basically, the only way he's getting traded is if the Hornets get to rape another team in a trade, and I doubt that will happen unless some team gets anxious.

Cleveland would have to take Okafor,Posey and Peja contracts. That's a lot of money bro. But if Cleveland gets CP3, Bron will stay. Or cp3 will take over that Franchise so you win either way.

I agree. LeBron would be more tempted to stay, and they will attract more players if he does stays and they have CP3. Cleveland has to do something edgy like this to keep him. There's no doubt he loves the city and fans, but that may not be enough to keep him.

Now this kinda throws a wrench into everything. The last thing you want your Franchise player to say is that he's open to a trade.



With trade speculation swirling around him, Chris Paul said Wednesday that he's open to a trade if the New Orleans Hornets aren't committed to winning championships.

"My first choice is to be in New Orleans,'' Paul said in a telephone interview from London. "I just want to make sure we're committed to winning. If we're not committed to winning and trying to get better so we can contend with the Lakers, the Celtics and all these other top teams, then I'm open to being traded.''

Saw this on another site:



Boston:Chris Paul
New Orleans:Rajon Rondo, Rasheed Wallace

:speechless:

I'd laugh my *** off if that happened.

Saddler,

Dwight Howard actually makes less than Vince Carter's expiring contract that will be off the books... We know the Magic aren't afraid to pay the luxury tax and they also have an 8 mil trade exception... They aren't worried about the dinero... and to all these people talking about Paul is gonna go to the West, I doubt it... Also, he is coming off injury and a team never gets full value when they trade a superstar.... That's just the way it is.

Paul+Howard would be one of the greatest pairs ever to play in any era. They would be borderline unstoppable. But he isn't being traded until he either burns his bridges or is in the last year of his contract.

A Lebron/Paul pairing would be less than optimum. They're basically both PGs.

06-23-2010, 12:02 PM
This is a scenario where I don't blame the player. Unless they sell the Hornets to that billionaire of an owner, then I believe he should get moved. It isn't fair for him personally if they take all the talent around him away, and the team gets worse.

I'd love to see him stay in NO but I really think its unfair to CP3 if their organization is more biased towards saving money then winning. Sad for the fans too, tough situation all around.

IF Paul is traded, I see two teams that have a decent to offer.
Nets give them Harris and the 3rd pick where they can get a center
Magic can have a package of JAmeer/VC/Gortat. by 2011, Hornets have 3 expirings

Nets Scenario
Harris/DC
Thornton/Mo Pete
Posey/Peja
West/Okafor
Cousins/Okafor

Magic
Jameer/DC
VC/Thornton
Posey/Peja
West/Okafor
Gortat/Okafor
And they got expirings from VC, Peja and Mo PEte (more than 20mil if I am not mistaken)

If The Hornets dont do something quick, they will lose Paul. The way Paul see's it, if they dont "want to be a championship team", then they wont make any major off-season moves.

if they do "want to be a championship team", They will try to acquire a star big man to accompany Paul.

Otherwise, Paul might be wearing a Magic Jersey soon.
Which I would be Extremely excited to see.

Any team can give picks. Why does the Hornets need Harris or Jameer if there moving CP3 for Collison?

Can any rumored team offer a young All-Star PF on his rookie contract like Atlanta can (Al Horford)?

CP3 wanted Atlanta to draft him.

If Hornets wanted CP3 traded, they would want to dump salary too.

Al Horford, Bibby, 1st round pick, fillers for CP3 and Okafor(salary)

Can another team offer something better that doesn't kill your team and doesn't involve a PG (which the Hornets don't need, how stupid)?

1st, Mike Bibby is a filler (expiring contract to take on the Hornets bad contracts), prob won't even play him at all. Al Horford is the main piece. I guess you don't know fair trades.

2nd, Al Horford > everybody you just listed. Collison and Jameer can't play together. Collison and Horford combo is better than the scrubs your listing to make the Magic better.

3rd, stop acting hard on the internet big boy. CP3 is 99% going to stay a Hornet anyways.

CP3 in L.A. would never work.. He needs the ball, Kobe needs the ball. Why is everyone giving up on Derek Fisher? Think the guy has a few more years left and he's perfect for that team with his experience and leadership..

Don't see why Houston would do it..they'd have to give up a lot and then Paul's in a similiar situation as he is in NO.

2nd, Al Horford > everybody you just listed. Collison and Jameer can't play together. Collison and Horford combo is better than the scrubs your listing to make the Magic better.

3rd, stop acting hard on the internet big boy. CP3 is 99% going to stay a Hornet anyways.

If a starting point guard in the NBA is a "filler" then that really says a lot about how bad your team is and if you think CP3 makes your team a legit title contender then your sorely mistaken because even with him your still worse than the magic.

Bibby being traded has nothing to do with how "bad" my team is (50+ wins and 3rd seed in the East.) It's about salaries and the fact Bibby would be used as an expiring due to the Hornets having Collison.

I'm also not dumb to think Bibby is anywhere on Paul's level. So you trying to start bashing the Hawks because you think the Magic's scrubs will get Paul is not going to work.;)

I don't get it... Why the F would they want to trade Paul??? He is still young and one of the best PGs in the league... What good can they get out of any deal involving him?

WE DONT WANT TO TRADE HIM. All of these rumors are other teams want him, but we stated many times, we aren't trading him.

For real, can you guys read?? Im just asking because Chris Paul never said he wanted out. He just wants the Hornets to be contenders. And the Hornets franchise said we are not trading CP3, so close thread!

Ok... Too lazy to read the article... LOL... I was about to send you a message to ask you about this... Hahaha... Selling the team will be wiser than trading a superstar like Chirs Paul!

They have been saying that the sale of the team might not happen. League "sources" also have said if the sale does not happen that Paul will be traded. I hope for the franchises sake he is not moved but until the sale happens then it is a real probability.
