How about this trade:
Clippers send SF Corey Maggette and PG Shaun Livingston (with draft picks or Korolev, to ensure equality of trade if need be)
New Orleans for PG Chris Paul and SF Peja Stojakovic.
Our lineup would then be:
PG Chris Paul / Sam Cassell / Daniel Ewing
SG Sam Cassell / Cuttino Mobley / Daniel Ewing
SF Quinton Ross / Peja Stojakovic / Tim Thomas
PF Elton Brand / James Singleton / Tim Thomas
C Chris Kaman / Aaron Williams / Paul Davis
We get a excellent true PG in Paul. Quick, can score well, does it all and is very young yet. We get a proven 3-point shooter in Peja. He isnt gonna have to do much else since Q-Ross can defend and shoot when needed. If need be...we could even give them Tim Thomas for a guy like Marcus Vicinius or Brandon Bass.
For the Hornets: they are doing worse than we are, could add two young "starters" to their team and Maggette would be traded (which he wants, not necesarily us).
Any thoughts guys on this:
1st: Would this help our team ??
2nd: Is it a fair trade for New Orleans ??
3rd: Would this trade even be possible with salaries matching ??
