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.
