    Default Chris Paul Frustrated

    Chris Paul wants out. He won't say it publically because he's a nice guy but he knows the Hornets are a mess. After the Byron Scott firing Paul sees the Hornets falling apart and wants to win.

    Donnie should "give the farm" for Chris Paul. Forget Lebron and 2010. Go after him now. The Hornets owner is cheap and won't get the pieces to surround Paul. Give them our expiring contracts and draft picks. Whatever it takes. Then use Curry's and Jeffries' expiring contracts after this season to get the rest of the pieces (Josh Smith?, Kevin Martin?).

    Lebron is not coming here. No way would he come to this mess. He wants to win and the 2010 plan doesn't give him the proper supporting cast.

    I think it's obvious the PG is the most important position for D'Antoni's system. Nash is not coming here and Chris Paul is arguably the best PG in the game right now. He would be perfect for D'Antoni's system. He also plays defense.

    I think Donnie should pursue this aggressively. Whatever it takes without getting totally raped. Noone should be considered untradeable or not worth giving up for Paul. Although I would like to keep Gallo somehow.

    Another positive spin on this approach is that in scrapping the 2010 plan we can retain the Bird Rights for any of our players that could be helpful in the future. Harrington could still be a nice piece off the bench, same goes for Nate. We can than just use the MLE and Bi-level exception to get the rest of the role players (Kapono? Sean Williams?)

    No Josh Smith?? I can understand the No on Kevin Martin because he's so injury prone but I think Josh Smith could be a nice fit at PF for D'Antoni's system. And he plays defense/blocks shots. If Paul can make Tyson Chandler and David West look good, imagine what he could do with Josh Smith.

    If Lebron Does not want to come here because he wants o win..!

    Then what makes you think Chris Paul will come here ? You think Chris Paul does not want to win?

    Since we are a mess now and building up, then we should focus more on making the right draft picks and building the team like that by developing our OWN OWN OWN stars.

    Some Examples are: Portland Trail Blazers (building around ROY), Memphis Grizzlies (Building around MAYO and Marc Gasol). I think those two teams will be two of the best teams in the WEST in the near future.

    Again, we have pieces like Douglas, Gallinari, Hill that we should try to build the team around them for now. These guys have potential.

    p.s. IT SUCKS that we dont have the 1 round pick for 2010 draft :S:S:S
    Becasue once again we are going to suck this year,.

    There's a difference. Lebron will sign with a team as an unrestricted free agent. Chris Paul would be traded. He has less choice. Lebron's team will compete for a championship. Chris Paul's team is bad and will look to rebuild. Plus, the Hornets are cheap and will not spend the money to get the supporting cast Chris Paul needs. The Knicks, on the other hand, will spend the money.

    I would think Chris Paul would love to play for D'Antoni.

    Problem, we don't have any stars to build around. Chandler, Douglas and Hill will never be stars. Gallo has potential but still has a long way to go.

    I don't want to have to wait another 10 years for us to make the right draft pick.

    i actually like josh, is just his contract i don't like.i'd much rather see what yao does if he returns healthy.i'd rather have yao + paul.

    on smith, i think he's got top 5 nba player ability, much like rudy gay.he's just dumb as a box of rocks.

    Even if the Hornets considered trading Paul (which they won't, trust me), we don't have anything to give. They need a SG and SF badly, plus a PG to replace Paul. Our best trade pieces would be Gallo, Douglas, and Chandler. That is not even close to enough for CP3.

    We could trade our entire roster, the Hornets could still get a much better deal. Besides, how would the Hornets franchise make any money without CP3? This would never work...

    As much as I love Chris Paul, we need draft picks...we can't pull an isiah and be screwed for years like we are now because of the Marbury trade and having no 2010 pick.

    If you would get Paul it would be now and using all the one year contracts we have as trade bait....throw in Lee, Robinson, Chandler, and I guess a 1st round pick but only one.

    Honestly our entire roster isn't worth Chris Paul.

    While the Hornets are cheap, the odds of us getting him are like the odds of the Knicks going 71-1 in their next 72 games and tying the best record in NBA history. Actually the latter is probably more likely than us getting Chris Paul

    No way will the Hornets trade Paul. There is no one in the Knicks line up that will match up. Forget finance. No one or group comes close to equal value skill for skill. Knicks have a much better shot at landing Nash.

    Better shot is getting Joe Johnson. You can make the same argument of 'Why would Joe leave a playoff team to come to NY.' May response is Joe left Phoenix for ATL when ATL was a joke and not the place anyone wanted to be. Sounds a little bit like NY now.

    Nash/Joe Johnson and maybe Bosh or Amare
