ďI donít know if Iím going to be a Hornet, Ē Collison said before meeting with fans at the Hornetsí draft party in Mandeville. ďI like it here, but things donít work out that way. This is a business, and Iím starting to understand it.Ē

Collison thought he was traded last week to the Indiana Pacers after receiving a voicemail message from a reporter seeking comment about the rumored trade. Collison said he quickly called his agent, who told him he was still with the Hornets.

ďIím not going to lie, itís a little distracting, Ē Collison said. ďAfter a good year, you expect good things to happen. It is what it is, and we have a lot of different issues on the team that we want to fix. Iím certain management is going to fix that. All I can do is focus on myself and whatever happens, happens.Ē

One source says it's Paul who's going to get traded, the next source says it's Collison they want to move...

Who knows? It will be interesting to see how it all plays out. I still think that the Hornets will hold onto CP3.

well the Hornets have two very good PGs and they definitely don't need two PGs but they do have glaring needs in other positions. that plus the fact that the owner is strapped for money means something WILL happen. we just don't know what.

will they move Collison and try to improve the team? or will they try to save money and trade Paul instead? Granted Collison is not nearly as good as Paul but without Paul, they still have an all-star caliber PG in Collison.

Yeah they will move him, not Chris Paul. I'm guessing they'll go for a young big man in return or maybe a veteran that can help them win now.

Beasley for Collison :pray:

that would be such an unfair trade for New Orleans. Collison averaged nearly 20 pts and 10 assists last year in games where he played 27+ minutes. Beasley is an overrated piece of trash.

It would be funny if they moved both just to start all over again and dump Okafor & Posey's salaries in the process.

I don't know I just don't see many other teams taking on Okafor's 52 million dollar contract to get Collison. If the Hornets want a salary dump Knicks may be the best way to go, plus Chandler is not that bad of a player himself.

I don't see them trading either one of them right now.


Collison and TyFreak would be a great back-court for years to come, but who would they give up for Collison?

Evans:p


New Orleans would be smart to dump off Okafor with Collison. Hit 2 birds with 1 stone.

I want us to keep Okafor, but I understand the money issue. I just don't know who would play center if he was traded. Aaron Gray? I don't see them signing anyone cause they refuse to spend money.

We or you? Don't call it a dumb trade because Curry has been useless for a few years.

The Hornets are always cost-conscious and it was rumored that the Magic and Hornets were looking for a 3rd team to take Okafor for CHRIS PAUL. If that's true, Collison and Okafor is a reasonable trade. This would save them $40 million over 4 years.... does that sound dumb to you?

And from a basketball standpoint, Curry is expected to play this season and is at his lowing playing weight since joining the Knicks... also a contract year.

I can understand how from a fan perspective it seems like a dumb trade because as a player both Collison and Okafor are arguably worth more than Chandler...unfortunately there is also a business aspect to the NBA that actually makes this a fair trade.

TO will take Collison.

heck we'll even take Okafor if that was also part of the deal to shed the horrible contract he has. we'll give you Calderon, who has a more manageable contract. (and our two expirings in Banks and Evans)

06-25-2010, 08:56 PM
How bout Turk Weems and Banks for Collison and Okafor..Toronto gets a legit C and can move Bargnani to the PF and have Ed Davis come of the bench for a nice 3 man rotation,and Collison wiould be great if they can trade Jose or Jack... New orleans get Turk a solid Vet to help them win now.Weems a cheap athletic up an coming player and Banks who is an expiring contract next year and could back up Paul occasionally.Also they get rid of Okafor and his huge contract to Toronro who actually wouldnt mind over paying for a legit centre since they havent had one in like a decade.Thoughts?

06-25-2010, 11:21 PM
Interesting considering his potential and how well he played when he stepped in. What teams would try and make a move for him? Teams that could use a point guard I can think of off the top of my head are the Heat, Raptors, Sac (if Evans plays SG), and Knicks.

Also if they are trading one of the point guards most likely it is Paul bc they are trying to save money. Trading a second year player does not save a ton of money

I'm sorry but how does Okafor-Collison for Curry-Chandler-Douglas-future pick(s)/cash not make sense? The Hornets shed the Okafor contract and pick up two good young guys as well another asset or two, the Knicks get Okafor and Collison to pair with Gallo for their pitch to LeBron. I mean a starting 5 of Collison-LeBron-Gallo-Bosh-Okafor is definitely title worthy. I just don't get the NBA some times, this deal makes sense unlike 90% of the ones that actually go down.

The whole point in trading Collison would be to move Okafor's contract so i doubt you would get that much for him.

They have 2 really good point guards but, it doesnt seem like they can keep both. Collison is a hell of a player but, i think he's the one who has to go. If he is the one to go, i hope they do in fact get proper value of the trade

Cavs could offer up a proposal. Delonte West, Anthony Parker, Sebastian Telfair, and Leon Powe for Collison and Okafor. The salaries would match up, and all the players are expiring contracts.

If they are trying to dump CP3s salary too the Cavs could throw in Jamison, who has 2 years left on his deal.

That looks good, but throw LeBron in the deal with a sign and trade :p

If we trade Collison, I want for a sure starter at SF in exchange for him. Also, keep Okafor and trade Posey instead.

Darren Collison has all star potential, I'm sure you'd have to give up value to get him, not just take back Okafor which I'm sure is also a requirement.

I'd rather have Okafor and Collison if Bosh is leaving. I don't know if he'll want to go to New Orleans though, cause he wants to see what Lebron's doing.

But if he wants to leave, I pray to god that he goes somewhere on the western conference. Don't want him here in the East, and face him 4 times a season.
