Several teams going after Chris Paul

If they don't mind trading him, getting the #3 pick + Harris would be a good start imo.

Of course we aren't in the mix!

Multiple sources tell Yahoo! Sports that William Wesley, who is a member of the inner circle of LeBron James, is telling teams with salary-cap space that their chances of landing James would dramatically increase if they are able to trade for Chris Paul.

Paul is not on the trade market but some team executives believe that acquiring the All-Star point guard is not out of the realm of possibility if a high price is paid.

"He can be had with [current owner George] Shinn in there, but once the new guy [Gary Chouest] takes over, he's off the market," one executive said.

Memphis recently offered O.J. Mayo in a package for Paul, but the talks went nowhere.

The Nets are willing to offer the third overall pick, as well as any player on their roster except for Brook Lopez, according to sources.

The Blazers have long been in the market for Paul and are expected to make an offer, according to a source.
