On PTI today they said that CP3 might be traded. They said the teams that will be involved are the Nets, Knicks, and Clippers. They said the Clippers have the most to offer from those teams. Think about it like this: Chris Paul is way better than Joe Johnson, Rudy Gay, and Amare. What if the Clippers decided to offer Eric Gordon and cap space to make the deal work for Chris Paul. Think about it, the Hornets get a young stud in Eric Gordon and they get a huge financial helping while still having a young stud at PG in Collison. The lineups would be:

Clippers:

pg: Paul

sg: Ray Allen (possibly for 5 million or another sg for cheap)

sf: Al-Farouq Aminu

pf: Griffin

c: Kaman

Hornets:

pg: Darren Collison

sg: Eric Gordon

sf: Marcus Thornton

pf: David West

c: Emeka Okafor

  • way better off financially
BINGO!

We'd probably have to take Curry and send Baron to NY.

For Chris Paul, I still do this deal in a second.

I would trade any player we have straight up for Chris Paul. He is the kind of player that you build a franchise around.

wow a lot of rumors coming out. and with the rumors of us trading our draft pick and this one right here, I think tie into each other. gordon and the #8 for CP3. then, we just trade baron. maybe to the bobcats, who have already said that they are willing to spend money to get better, and baron is a HUGE upgrade for the Bobcats. all I really want is back would be gerald henderson and a bad contract, maybe like Diop.

That's bull. The Hornets have already said they are NOT interested in trading away CP3. They have already turned down the Nets according to ESPN. Teams are interested but not the Hornets...Bottom line.

The Nets offered Harris and the 3rd overall pick and even that didn't make them blink.

3rd overall pick? Harris? C'mon..

joe, i heard that the GM is listening to all trades, but they just want more talent in return that they have been offered.

I don't buy it. They trade away the best PG in the NBA to get what? They are shedding salary not trying to get better.

If that were the case, Harris and the 3rd overall pick not only keeps you competitive, it lowers your salary.

well, harris made 8.4 and paul is making 13.5. plus add the 3rd pick who makes 4m(i think) and that ends up being 12.4. harris is injury prone, compared to paul who just had bad luck this season. and are you positive that the nets offered harris and the pick? cause i doubt that they offered that. they would probably have wanted to trade harris in a separate deal to get more talent.

Yes. It was confirmed by ESPN and now by the Hornets. They responded by saying he is NOT on the market.

Plus, you get 2 players for the price of one. And you have low salaries for the next couple of years. they can always trade away other pices to they avoid luxury tax.

For Chris Paul? I like Gordon, but jeeze... Get a grip.

Don't think this is happening though. It sounds pretty far fetched... How do we move Baron? Too many moving parts in this one, though I'd love it.

Publicly they are saying he is not on the market but Monty Wiliams referred to him as not really "touchable" but never said he is untouchable. I could see them trading him for cap space.

Things are getting worse in the economy and ownders know that and want to increase their financial flexibility.

it doesnt say it here, but i'm still trying to find where I saw that, but the GM said that they value paul more than the offers that they have received, which means they want back more talent. when i get the exact article, i'll post it.

ESPN is talking about the trade rumors, it looks like the Hornets are in a major cost cutting mode and might even get rid of Okafor too. Honestly, if we could package any 2 players for Chris Paul, we have to do it, and that includes Eric Gordon and Blake Griffin. Chris Paul is a proven stud, Eric Gordon is not a true leader and Blake Griffin is still an unknown at this point.

I would be willing to give anyone except for griffin and Dj, cause those two players will be the one's that require CP3 the most, and vise versa due to the alley-opps.

Hell Ya! You trade everybody and anybody to get Paul(except Blake Griffin of course!) Especially if getting Chris Paul will get you Lebron like World Wide Wes said. Sadly, I don't think N.O. Trades Paul.

but i do agree with joe, that it's all just speculation. it's not every day a top 5 player in the league is u for trade. the only way this happens is if the team getting paul is also taking 2 OTHER of their bad contracts.

Paul would be great but it doesn't even matter! Our Starting Line up is pretty much set! (In assumption that we fill in the SF Position) the only guy I would want to see dealt is Kaman! I just don't think he fits with what we're trying to build upon!

What is everyones obsession with Eric Gordon aka the Commissioner? To trade Gordon to NO for CP3 would be such a massive upgrade it would be unbelievable. For once the Clippers would have the best PG in the NBA, and a top 5 player in the NBA hands down.

CP3 is a monster, he can score, steal, shoot, pass everything you want in a PG. Quite overvaluing our players it makes me sick.

I'd do a Gordon and Paul Swap!!! that would be a BIG Steal!!!

but at the same time Gordon is still very young and has plenty of time to improve!

CP3 is a monster upgrade over Baron Davis. I would do it without question. EG is a good player but expendable if it got us CP3. We would be a much better team with him as our floor general. Can I give DTS a call and tell him to get on it.

It would be one of the biggest moves the franchise has ever made, IMHO.

If we were to get CP3 somehow, it would have to be a 3 team trade. Baron Davis has to be part of the deal because he cannot be on the same team as CP3. Not sure if it will work but this seems pretty fair for all teams:

Clippers get: Chris Paul, Julian Wright (We get the best PG and a role player)

Hornets get: Eric Gordon, Mike Conley, Rudy Gay (Sign & Trade) (They get young talent and sheds cap space)

Grizzlies get: Baron Davis, James Posey (They get a good PG which they need and a role player)

Possible Clippers Lineups:

PG-Chris Paul

SG-Dwayne Wade or Joe Johnson

SF-Julian Wright or our draft pick

PF-Blake Griffin

C-Chris Kaman

*Key Reserves: SF Draft Pick or Julian Wright, Deandre Jordan, cheap free agents

PG-Chris Paul

SG-Xavier Henry

SF-Lebron James

PF-Blake Griffin

C-Chris Kaman

*Key Reserves: Julian Wright, Deandre Jordan, cheap free agents

Opposing Lineups:

Hornets:

PG-Darren Collison, Mike Conley

SG-Eric Gordon, Marcus Thornton, Mo Peterson

SF-Rudy Gay, Peja Stojakovic

PF-David West

C-Emeka Okafor, Draft Pick

Grizzlies

PG-Baron Davis

SG-OJ Mayo

SF-James Posey or Draft Pick

PF-Zach Randolph

C-Marc Gasol, Hasheem Thabeet

I would be all for it but we would have to alter our decision making in the draft and definitely take a 2 guard to make up for Eric Gordons loss....Xavier Henry anyone?

Baron Davis can be on the same team with CP3, but he just won't be on the court playing. I say make Baron don a set of pom poms and join the Clippers spirit on the sideline to cheer on a real Point guard, Chris Paul

Sure will happen something in the next days, i'm sure will be a busy & happy (for us) summer.

Maybe some unexpected trades will be done, i hope that the clips will be involved into it.

It'd be beautiful but Griz get short end of the stick. They won't sign and trade Gay for Baron. (Unless Gay demands to leave which I guess is possible.) Pretty sure we'd have to dump half our draft picks for the next decade to NO for this deal to go through.

The only player anybody wants is Griffin. Kaman is second and in this horse race, DJ is staring at Kaman's butt from a long way back As much as I don't really like Draft Picks, BG's a keeper. I'd often like to use Baron's contract to toilet train puppys but we're stuck with him. We forget he's 2/3 as good as CP. I'd much rather gamble on him and BG rather than CP3 and ?? Get a SF. For a great SF that could shoot, I'd trade EJ and start Sool

I'm not discounting some major seismic surprises soon though

the only way i see the clippers being a respected team by getting chris paul is what they end up giving up.. odds are to get paul eric gordon dj and #8 wouldn't cut it.. more than likely we'd have to throw in blake griffin into the equation plus prolly something extra. in the end keeping the core together will be a better idea to me at least imo

Im pretty sure Sterling is doing all he can to get paul.. Do you guys remember when he went over to paul after a game and told him he should come to LA.. For an owner to say that is crazy.. Especially coming from sterling, he doesnt even talk to his own players lol
