    Default Paul Won't Extend Asks to Be traded to Knicks!

    Oh I hope this is true and we can put together a package to get him! As much as I like Fields and Iman I think they are gonners if we are to get CP3.

    Chris Paul's agent has told the New Orleans Hornets that Paul will not sign a contract extension and wants to be traded to the New York Knicks, according to league sources, Yahoo! Sports reported.


    Paul
    But Hornets general manager Dell Demps, who has heard several trade overtures for the All-Star point guard, wants to meet with Paul and hear that from him, once lockout-related restrictions on front office contact with players are lifted, according to the report.

    For his part, Paul, working out with his current teammates on Thursday, said his focus is with the Hornets. Thursday was the first day NBA players were permitted to use team facilities for voluntary workouts since an agreement was reached to end the lockout.

    "I've got to be the happiest person in the world right now just to be back in the gym, getting a chance to work out with a couple of my teammates," Paul said.

    Paul, who has been the object of rampant trade talk because he can opt out of his contract after this season, joined Trevor Ariza and Quincy Pondexter at the team's suburban training center. They were working out with Paul's personal trainer because they cannot work with team staff until the new labor agreement is ratified.

    "I don't think about it, to tell you the truth," Paul said of the trade rumors. "I'm just ready to get out here and compete and hoop. This is what I do. I love it.

    "I have a very tight circle and they know this whole lockout thing's been driving me nuts, so I'm just happy to get out on the court and compete. This is the way that I express myself, by playing basketball, so I can't wait to get out there."

    New Orleans has only five players under contract. Emeka Okafor and Jarrett Jack have not arrived yet.

    Dwil and D. Howard might force CP3 into putting pressure on NO to trade him now or risk us snatching one of them up instead. I smell a big 3 in NYC!!!

    Shumpert is not a 2, he is a 1.
    Knicks picked him up to groom him as a 1, not as a 2.
    While they may play him at the 2 sometimes (as like other guards), he is meant to be a 1.

    Wait and see how Fields has developed. Cause he might be all that's left LOL.

    Billups, Carter, Williams, Balkman and Turiaf can be traded if it is up to me + I could trade Brown, but I'm convinced Walsh didn't draft Fields, Rautins, Shumpert, Harrellson and Jordan for no reason. I think he believed at least some of these guys could raise to very valuable players and therefore I wouldn't so easily trade them. But, if any of them will be traded to New Orleans, than bring at least young Ewing back!

    it would be great to get paul and all but im still worried about whatever cap space were left with...miami's big three signed for less money and left enough cap space to get ok players and if wasnt enough for them...they were still weak at center and point guard. from what i read we would have to drop everyone to pick up paul... what do we do with the center position? what about the 2? call me crazy, stupid or whatever but id rather the knicks sign good role players around melo and stat instead of signing paul and being ****ty at the 2 or center...building a strong team around two star players instead of having three star players and crap makes more sense to me.

    Our big 3 would be better than Miami's and has more synergy...CP3 will turn STAT into an absolute monster and Melo is just, well Melo!

    Get the big 3 now and fill spots over the next few years. Theses guys are all young so we have time to piece together role players who Im sure will love to come to NYC to play with our squad.

    I just read this, and had the same phenomenon occur in the sub-waist area similar to the time I met Meghan Markle. (look her up if you must)

    No homo by the way, but I definitely had a



    moment.

    That big three gels together much better than LeBron, Wade, and Bosh. I would make my number one target Anthony Parker who was a big part of those teams with LeBron. He also plays great defense and is the perfect compliment for a team such as this. I would also go after players like Grant Hill, Kurt Thomas, and most importantly Michael Redd at the veterans minimum. If healthy, Redd would be a lethal asset off our bench. I think this team could compete for a title this year and with another year to get a Center, they will def be good enough next year.

    Yeah that would be a great squad.

    While a big part of me wants D12 on this team, I also just jizzed at the idea of a CP3-Amar'e Pick and Roll

    This might be a dumb question, but would really appreciate feedback. I am not sure how it works. Can the Knicks do the following under the new CBA.

    Trade Fields, Shumpert, Billups, Douglas, Turiaf, and First Round Pick for Paul.

    Then use the full MLE on DeAndre Jordan? Then maybe sign Parker for veteran minimum. Can you imagine a team of

    PG: Chris Paul
    SG: Anthony Parker
    SF: Carmelo Anthony
    PF: Amare Stoudemire
    C: DeAndre Jordan

    Yes, but DeAndre Jordan will likely get MUCH more than the MLE.

    All we need now is for New Orleans to cave and accept our offer. They may end up saying "We don't like the Knicks pieces" and just force Paul to take $20~ less in the offseason.
