View Full Version : Rumor: The Hornets might send Chris Paul to Boston

With the NBA draft all set for tomorrow, trade speculation is heating up!

Yesterday, it was reported that the New Orleans Hornets will listen to offers for Chris Paul. He said that he wants to win, but is still open to playing in New Orleans and their new regime. However, he could very well be dealt during the draft tomorrow night.

One hot rumor that's being talked about is the Hornets sending Chris Paul to Boston for Paul Pierce. The Celtics would also have to give up a first round pick. Right now, it's just being reported as a rumor. No trade has taken place, and it may not even be imminent.

Why would the Hornets do that? It would look like a salary dump. Hornets have to look at getting Young good players for CP3.

What a horrible trade for NOLA. CP3 for an aging Paul Pierce and a late first rounder? I'd assume Rondo would be in the deal as well, not that this would ever happen.

ya and then they will re-sign Ray Allen trade Ray, Rondo and Next years #1 for Lebron in a sign and trade. Paul, Lebron and KG the new big 3.

cp3 can actually shoot. and PP is a expiring why wouldn't a team trying to get undercap want him. And you know Okafor and Posey would be great for Boston's Bench.


Plus NO gets back close value in a top 5 point for a Top 5 point.


But yea never.

This one actually makes a little sense. Draft a young Wing player and re-sign Ray. I love Rondo, not sure I would ever want to see him go but Paul is the best PG in the game probably.

I love Rondo and think he is the best pure pg in the game. But Paul is better at scoring and not needing anyone else to make the shots he can do it.

PP is not what he once was, So this trade gives you a better PG if you are Boston and Okafor and Posey, If they meet Lakers again throw Posey on Bryant and you have Okafor down low to help Perkins.

I would love for that to happen. without Rondo involved. Then have Pierce opt out of his contract and resign with Celtics for league MLE. that would be great. Of course it would never happen, Just like the trade stated above wont.

This is NOT possible, because Paul Pierce can opt out of his contract, he is not able to be traded until July 1. Otherwise, Boston could make this deal, then Pierce could opt out, and sign with Boston.

This is NOT possible, unless Pierce waves his right to opt out before July 1, which is a virtual uncertainty.

This was actually a rumor when CP3 was drafted. We would have deal Pierce and a pick for the draft rights to CP3. But that was before Rondo was on BOS or NO dven knew what CP3 could do. This is probably some idiot that searched "CP3 trade rumors" and saw the old rumor on like the 5th page. He then blogged about it without even noticing the date.

One thing is for sure if your going to get any value for Paul Pierce now is the time. Boston can't go back into the pre Garnett void, and Danny won't let that happen. Strike while the kettle is hot. Moves have to be made now or the big three will hold this team hostage for the next 6-7 years.

this is one of the dumbest rumors ive ever heard. Pierce is getting close to the end of his career and the face of the celtic franchise, why would the hornets give up the best point guard in the game for an aging small foward? and why would the celtics want a 2nd point guard?

Nighthawk
06-23-2010, 04:06 PM
No way this happens. I love Paul Pierce. But i would have to think there is a team out there willing to give much more value to the Hornets for CP3 than an aging Pierce and the 19th pick. A team like the Blazers could offer so much young talent. Nets have been rumored but N.O doesn't want a pg back. And thats all the Nets have to offer...D. Harris. They wont trade Lopez. N.O has Collison. I would be so excited if we somehow got CP3. Ive grown to LOVE Rajon but lets face facts. CP3 can do what Rondo does and more. Kobe isnt sagging off Chris Paul 15 ft. We could then put Rondo on the block and get something great back in return. This is all useless anyways as i doubt he comes to Boston.

on the cs end because paul is better than Rondo and Rondo would net us a nice package. I always thought Paul Pierce weould end his career as a Celtic but if he could really get us Chris Paul, Ainge would be silly NOT to do it. I think C's do this trade in a heartbeat. I think N.O would be silly and thats why if Paul even gets traded in the 1st place it wont be to the Bean

bosoxlover12
06-23-2010, 05:51 PM
This trade makes no sense. If Rondo isn't included, there would be 2 PGs in BOS. If Rondo is included, then why are they trading CP3! The whole idea is that they think Collison can be good enough for A LOT cheaper. Then you still have 2 PGs in NO, but now one cant shoot as well.


I would be fine with a Pierce, 1st, future 1st for paul, then shipping off paul to MIA for a sign/trade with Dwyane Wade, and then sign Allen or Rudy Gay.


And i would like to put it: There are 2 big current offers for CP3 right now:

CP3 for Devin Harris, #3 overall
CP3 for OJ Mayo, #12 overall

so why would NO do Pierce, #19 for CP3, because Mayo>Pierce IMO, and im a Celtics diehard

Clearly an attempt to get some off season conversation going. Neeeeeext.
