D.Smith: Perhaps Chris Paul in play?

Bargnani would have to go i persume along with our expirings... or Turk?

Quote:
So judging by stuff I read from reporters I respect, it seems that there’s a feeling around that perhaps Chris Paul is in play – although I must admit to being a bit dubious since he’s on the record as loving his new coach and is the face of a franchise that needs to sell tickets.

I imagine when push comes to shove, this would have been the Hornets creating a bit of a buzz with no real intention of making a move.

That said, I would presume – and expect – that B. Colangelo has made a call to see what’s up and I would presume – and expect – that overture would have been rebuffed.

While the Raptors have some varied parts to dangle, they don’t have a ‘big name’ like Paul to offer in a trade. There isn’t a fit, I don’t think.

And hang on a sec. Before you inundate me wit “Chris Bosh for Chris Paul sign-and-trade” stuff think this: If you’re a free agent, do you want to go to New Orleans if the one guy who makes the franchise attractive is gone?

agreed. i'm tired of this speculation, because everything these reporters are saying are just speculation, yeah its true. but that's just a guess, when it happens it happens. No one is speaking freely about the free agency.

If NJ wants to offer up the #3 pick + Lopez + Lee, I'm sure Paul would be available.
To suggest we'll get Paul is crazy.

If NJ got offered a package for Paul that included Lopez, you better believe that they'd jump on it.

That proposal you suggested, NOLA would laugh for a good 10 minutes then hang up. To suggest that The Hornets would take our shit for what's thought of as the best point guard in the game is laughable.

offering Bosh and Demar and 1 7 first round picks and take back all of NO's BAD contracts would keep NO from hanging up the phone for exactly 1 minute.

let them keep CP3 in that deal.... I can't believe you'd offer that much.... it's lunacy. CP3 is awesome, but that is too much.

No its not. Youre getting a top 5 player and likely top 5 pg ever for a soft C, a good young SG and two picks that would be late round picks since you're pairing up Bosh/CP3 together and them being a top seed in the league.

You do whatever it takes to get CP3 and Bosh together. Give them the CN Tower.

one things that concerns me with cp3 is his torn meniscus(JO, bynum) and his tits which contribute to a torn meniscus(JO, bynum). He's carrying too much weight and needs to lose the jugs

Nets aren't offering Lopez up. It was a package of the 3rd pick and any other player was available.

No way we can get Paul. And if we do I'd be sooooo happy. Pair him with Bosh and we will have an amazing team

We'd probably have to take Okafor AND Posey to get Paul.

Yeah maybe. Posey is a great defender though, as shown in the Finals 08
