The thing about the CP3 trade is.. if he tells the NOH front office he only wants to go to the Knicks at the deadline there aren't many other options for them. No team is going to want him as a rental.. NOH would have to deal with us.
There won't be any escape hatch team like NJ because there won't need to be.
There's will not be any threat of a new CBA creating urgency for Paul and the need for another team.
If he wants to come to the Knicks and it can work financially somehow, it should happen w/ out exorbitant cost to us.
We should really have the upper hand if a trade goes down.
