This just in reported from hoops world.com Chris Paul is rumored to be on trading block....my guess is The hornets were not too fond of what was said at carmelo anthonys wedding refering to the BIG THREE for the knicks...could that have caused the GM of the hornets to step down and what team do you think has the cap room to absorb his contract..?

hornets management already said cp3 will not be traded....

and moreover this rumor is from hoopsworld...not happening

Well....Hoopsworld is very wrong and incorrect.

Jeff Bower was the one who wanted to trade Chris Paul. It was the Hornets President & owner who affirmed him not to, that Paul was staying.

You can go look at articles with Jeff Bower and (President) Hugh Weber. Most of the time it's this repetitive theme from Bower of "yeah we've had trade offers for Paul--we're trying to win now..." yadda yadda.

And Weber's tone is always of this "Paul is not leaving."

People just want to see the big star traded from the small-market team to someone like the Knicks. Some of these rumors are ********.

paul will be a knick, its just a matter of time, NO should trade him while they can still get alot of value, this would be a good package from knicks:

Curry (expiring contract), felton, chandler, walker, first round pick for cp3 and oakfor (god awful contract)

NO should try to make a deal like this.

While I do think Paul will being elsewhere in 2012, it's no guarantee that it will be NY. Also your trade doesn't work for either side. You can't sign someone else's FA to trade them, I.E. Felton. N.O. is only getting 1 first round back and not much in terms of young talent.

Not sure if this is true as of today, but I can definitely see CP3 on the trading block soon. I thought he was untouchable, but with problems with managment along with his allegations of talking about joining other teams, I wouldnt be as surprised as I was a month or two ago if he was traded.

Next year we have huge expiring contracts that will give the hornets tons of money to work with, add to that an ownership change and getting rid of a terrible GM

Paul still has 2 years left so don't act like it's a done deal until you see him wearing a Knicks jersey. Because it worked so well with Lebron... Oh wait

The one thing ur clearly misssing is that Lebron never said once id like to play for the knicks....knick fans assumed that.....

In pauls case he has already stated he would like to join the knicks, which is not good for the hornets franchise.

Houston also has the right to swap first-round picks with New York in 2011, and the Rockets also get New York's 2012 first-round pick.

A source close to the negotiations told ESPN NBA Insider Chad Ford that the Knicks' 2011 pick is top-1 protected, and the 2012 pick is top-5 protected.

I can see Paul in another team before 2012 that the team will be the knicks I dont know Felton would love to keep his job and feed Amare, Gallo, Chandler, Randolph, Walker. New York very quitely formed a good team that will be in the playoffs this year. People always act like if New York lost in free agency when we actually landed the second best pf in the league. The team is on a warpath to become a good team again with these players actually saying the knicks are on their mind that means alot.

Not mad, I've pretty much accepted that Paul will probably play elsewhere. I'm just saying don't act like it's a done deal, especially when you don't have a credible source.

I'm growing tired of Pauls whining and with Pauls injury history, going with collison might be best for both parties

Orlando and New Orleans can get the below trade done. This would work out well for both teams.

Chris Paul and Emeka Okafor for Vince Carter (expiring contract) and Marcin Gortat

Orlando gets a real point guard to play with Lewis and Howard. New Orleans gets a money saving situation with VC's expiring contract and a Center for the future at a lot less money. New Orleans brings their cap down and Orlando somewhat counters what other teams in the east have done.

I think Colangelo will go get CP3 for the Raptors to be the new face of our franchise (for at least the next 2 years when Derozan and Bargnani are ready :) ) He seems to be able to pull off the impossible over the last few years...lol

I know it won't happen, but in theory he could use the trade exception from the CB4 trade to eat up Okafor's contract for the Hornets, and then give them Jose, and a couple young bigs to develop in Alabi and Davis...or some first rounds if they don't like the bigs etc. colangelo has stated he really wants to improve the starting PG for the raptors this offseason...I can't think of a better PG to obtain that CP3.

knicks traded 2011 and 2013 picks so they cannot trade 2012 becuase ur not allowed to trade back to back 1st round picks... so they have no choice but to keep the 2012 pick, they can only swap it... also, b/c they traded 2013, we cannot trade 2014, we can only swap it... next available pick we can give up is 2015, which i hope we dont lol you never know how good or bad you will be that far down the line

Chris Paul said, that they will make a big 3 in NY next season.. That's why no team would like to trade for him.. Nobody wants a 1year rental player.. BUT if the Orlando gets CP3, NY will be in trouble.. Melo may change his mind and play for the Magic..

Pure conjecture here I know, much speculation with no validation on my part but:

Chris Paul is from North Carolina, he went to school in North Carolina and the Bobcats just acquired Damp's disappearing contract which NO would probably love...I could see the Bobcats making a play for CP3 and maybe even take back Oakafor's contract they initially gave him.

Damp disappearing contract, Gerald Wallace, Gerald Henderson, future pick

for

CP3, Okafor

they can trade those if they want. however, you would be trading away an unsure asset, the hornets would be recieving the knicks or rockets 1st round pick from that year depending on if houston chooses to swap or not. I dont think someone would want to trade for an asset that is so fluid and could be two very different things, but they could concievabley do it if they chose to

Randolph,Curry,Chandler,Felton for Paul come December. A good cheap PG a 6'8 SF with good skills and can defend the 2/3/4 and a 7' SF/PF who can dribble coast to coast jump over a truck and throw a shot into the seats. And the Hamburglar for future cap relief.

Randolph/Felton/Chandler are cheap and YOUNG!!

Paul is not getting dealt until the trade deadline at the earliest. If NO struggles and there are any more signs of Paul being unhappy, they will wait until the deadline. Fans would understand a move by a struggling team a lot more than a team with optimism heading into a new year.

Chris Paul will leave because the Hornets will never be able to build a team around him there.

Paul's gonna need a lights out a shooter, scoring on the wing and a legit 20, 10 force in the post in order to compete for a title.

Where are they gonna get that? David West is not 20, 10 and Peja is old.

However, the Knicks won't be the only ones making a play for Paul...

I could see half a dozen, or more, teams that could make a better deal for Paul than the Knicks...

That's because of owner George Shinn. Dudes a complete joke.

Once the franchise is sold to Chouest, there will be brighter days for the Hornets. He's local and would be one of the richest owners in the NBA.

Couldn't have said it better. I guess we might as well just sit back and get used to it because they're going to doing this with CP3 and Melo alllllllllllll season. Oh well.

I wonder do people really understand what a struggling franchise this team was before CP3 got there and that he is literally the face of the franchise? He is financially untradeable.

cp3 isnt going anywhere and furthermore the team in this signature wouldn't have even went to the Super Bowl if the officials would have made the right call on the first down and pass interference calls in overtime. why take pride in a superbowl if you had been helped to get there.

as a knick fan, its impossible to say its only a matter of time until hes a knick.

after waiting two years for lebron and him flirting with us and other teams, and then doing something he probably knew he was gonna do the whole time, you cant say hes definitely gonna be a knick in the future.

while i think its possible that he would leave in two years as a free agent, he probably wont get traded, they would lose so much on and off the court. im happy with the knicks current roster now and moving forward, and i doubt paul gets traded

The problem is that you have all these Knicks fans that think since it's "New York" that all of the NBA players are just dying to play there. Well guess what? You guys should be thanking the Lord that you got Amar'e Stoudemire. I'm sorry you lost out on James, Wade, Bosh, Gay, Boozer and others but is it really necessary to start making rumors that Chris Paul & Carmelo Anthony are coming to NY? Please some of you people are so pathetic.

No, but New york can look to offer fairly for Chris Paul

Honestly, if anyone think we can get Paul with out giving up Galo/chandler and atleast two first rounders is pretty crazy. But i am staying the hell away from Okafur

Why not trade Anthony Randolph and Danillo Gallinari+Curry's expiring contract for CP3...

I think it gives the Hornets talent and cap flexibility.

Plus, they could just slide Collison to PG.

Not happening. That franchise and basketball in Louisiana is dead without Paul.

Just kind of like how Cleveland would be dead without LeBron? I honestly doubt Paul cares enough about New Orleans to not join with Melo and Amari in NYC in a year with all of the hype that will bring. You might as well trade him now and get something for him. Now that the Miami Three did their thing, you know its going to keep happening.

I can see Paul in another team before 2012 that the team will be the knicks I dont know Felton would love to keep his job and feed Amare, Gallo, Chandler, Randolph, Walker. New York very quitely formed a good team that will be in the playoffs this year. People always act like if New York lost in free agency when we actually landed the second best pf in the league. The team is on a warpath to become a good team again with these players actually saying the knicks are on their mind that means alot.

Agree, but Amare is the 3rd best PF in the league. Behind Gasol and Ru-paul Bosh.

This could actually be a good starting point. Especially since Indiana just picked a player similar to Granger in the draft.

There would probably have to be another piece going to NO as well.
i say the pacers should trade:

Granger
Foster
Future 1st rd pick

for

CP3
J. Wright

And yes the salaries does match

Why are you so mad? Is it because the best player on your team doesn't want to be there and is interested in coming to NY? Stop the sour grapes, your team will never be good, might as well bow out and let Paul come to the Knicks to battle the Heat and Bulls. CP3 clearly doesn't want to play for that loser franchise, he wants to make NY a winner again and get his name out there and no place to make a bigger name for yourself more than NY.

By the way, you are pathetic, let Knicks fan get all crazy. I don't necesarily think this is going to happen, unless the Knicks are willing to part with Gallinari, which I think could be a mistake in the future, but we will see what happens. Either way it's fun to speculate.

LOL delusional, funny you used that word. Because I would be delusional if I thought Chris Paul would want to remain on a crappy team with no future, even after he said he would love to come to the Knicks and join Carmelo despite still being under contract. Yes you can tell Paul loves New Orleans.

Come on guy your franchise sucks, who knows they might even have to move to another city someday because the fans are too busy running around with hookers and beads all day, getting fat with beer and hot dogs and then can't even afford to make it to a game because they either gambled all their money away or are just way too hung over.

Man some of you guys are typing under the influnece lol

First off there's no way Paul gets dealt before the trade deadline. If we're out of contention then I could see them trying to justify a trade IF they love the offer.

I don't see a way NY can pull Paul without giving Gallo. If they want to wait a year and a half then maybe the price would lower because of less time left on CP3's contract.

I could see him going to Orlando, NY, and maybe Philly if Paul is moved at THIS trade deadline.

HOOPSWORLD Hornets ' source said rumors of Chris Paul being traded are not based on anything they have talked about... calling rumors total speculation

Dallas final offer was as compelling as any, reportedly any legal combination of any of their next 3 first round picks, Rodrigue Beaubois, Dominique Jones, cash, and any players/expiring contracts (they have $30+ million worth...) besides Dirk. But at this point, they aren't accepting ANY offer short of LeBron James or Dwight Howard. Period.

So until the deadline, he's in NO, and once the deadline comes, we'll see who has the chips. Dallas still has the advantage, asset wise. Houston is there as well.

Ok....so the New York Post said:, "We'll form our own Big 3," Paul allegedly said.

^ How does that affirm anything? So what? You remember earlier in the season when Titans head coach Jeff Fischer was at a charity event and wore a Peyton Manning jersey, saying: "I just want to know what it felt like to be a winner."

^ People say things, it doesn't necessarily mean it's going to happen.

2. In response to your second, chidish statement. You can look through all of my posts. I never once stated that I was "jealous" of New York. Nor did I ever imply that. That's just you taking everything I say out of context and putting words in my mouth....something that is becoming quite a repetitive theme of yours.

What exactly is our "argument?" If Chris Paul will play for the Knicks or not? And you "won" the argument for something that is completely hypothetical?

Wow ok...ha well then you win for something that doesn't even exist at the moment. Douche.

Paul
Westbrook
Durant
Green or Ibaka
Aldrich or Mullens

Sefolosha

Maybe WE should just bring Chris Paul HOME. We'll slide Westbrook over to the 2 which was his natural position anyway, and let CP run the point. We'll make Thabo Sefolosha our 6th man and let him come in with the second unit. Our starting lineup would look something like this.

Paul
Westbrook
Durant
Green or Ibaka
Aldrich or Mullens

Bench-
Sefolosha
Harden
Maynor
Nick Collison

Trophy time......:D

The only wat the Raptors could get him is by trading their exception or expirings, picks, and Derozan

So because a person talked to a person who talked to Amar'e Stoudamire who said that Paul allegely said they should form there own Big 3 it is GUARANTEED he will go to NY... well that's that sorry Hornets you lost your pg

Thank you! Someone else on this forum actually has some rational thinking! :clap:

Yeah, but if we had the opportunity to have a Paul/Westbrook backcourt, I'm pretty sure Russell could find it in his heart to play SG, not becuz he's not a good PG, he's top notch no doubt, but come on.....those two guys on the floor together? Forget about it, we'd be untouchable. It's not like it would ever happen anyway, but I would feel fine saying this much......if it was ever a possibility, A) Chris Paul WOULD come back to OKC where he got his start and play ball for us, and B) Russell Westbrook WOULD be a team player and take on the role of starting SG in order to form the deadliest backcourt in the league.
