Rondo in Charlotte? I don't see it.
I suppose stranger things have happened.
There's every chance our division rivals are trying to bait NY into making a trade and giving up pieces, a little bit like the Nets did last year.
If we don't get him through FA, we don't get him.
Only problem is he doesnt want to go to Boston.
The scariest thing about this is this could be a move to put the Celtics in play for Dwight since they will have the cap room with Ray and KG coming off the books this year. Paul, Pierce, Dwight would be a tough group to beat.
if it happens the plan shouldn't change in regards to cap space. The only difference is the Knicks will probably use the MLE this year on a player since they wont have to hold it seeking a max next year. Also I doubt the knicks ever use the amnesty on Balkman and simply hold onto him until he is traded or they can just let him go. Since they will want that if Amare or Melo ever become injured
Anyhow Instead of using the room from Billups contract for space on Cp3 we use it on a players like Hibberts, Kevin Love, or Mcgee (and possibly De'andre Jordan if he doesn't sign). That along with the MLE from next will be a good team to bang with the heat, bulls, and celtics.
come on man
every one has to know garnett was falling to pieces last year
rondo was injured all year long with his elbow
pierce cant produce like he did
they have no center
their bench is god awful
jeff green is a never was
and glen davis is a fraud.
why would chris paul lock himself up with an aging franchise when he can have the world in his palm in NY.
this isnt lebron playing with his buddies
all of pauls buddies are on the knicks.
LOL This isn't happening. Come on, they can get better guards in return than Rondo.
Both Dwight and CP3 would probably leave after one year. I cant see them getting Chris paul, Dwight is a little more likely. If i was the gm of either one of those teams (Magic or Hornets) I would trade them before deadline for the best package offered like the Jazz did with D-will. I wouldnt trade a player to the team of their preference unless they had the best package to offer (no homo). And the Celtics, if they're smart they shouldnt hesitate to move their expiring contracts (KG and allen) for over payed but short term role players and draft picks.
Isn't the Hornets runned by the NBA? I doubt Stern will trade Paul because it goes against everything they stood for in the lockout. FA is the only way I see CP3 leaving the Hornets. If a trade is involved it will probably be A Rondo and Pual deal because both are talented and can help out a struggling franchise. But still, I doubt a trade of someone this valuable on a struggling team will happen, especially when "Stern" has a big part to play in it...
