    Default Rumor: Nets to trade for Chris Paul so they can sign LeBron James?

    There have been rumors that the Nets might pursue point guard Chris Paul through a trade. Since they don't seem to be all that high on any of the players they are likely to get with the No. 3 pick, such as Georgia Tech`s Derrick Favors, Kentucky's* DeMarcus Cousins or Syracuse`s Wes Johnson, they could trade the pick to get an established player.

    The Nets already have a championship caliber coach in Avery Johnson.With Chris Paul and Lebron James on their team they will win more championships than what Jordan and Pippen won.

    I doubt this comes to fruition. But Devin Harris + the 3rd overall pick is a good offer for CP3. If they add the expiring contracts of Dooling and Humphries for James Posey, they could easily get this deal done.

    PG-Paul
    SG-Courtney Lee
    SF-Lebron
    PF-???
    C-Lopez

    That's a scary lineup that would dominate for years. Hopefully this doesn't happen.

    All the more reason to watch the draft this Thursday. The Knicks need to make moves to make them look more attractive.

    Eddy Curry for Richard Hamilton anyone?

    Richard Hamilton LOL, NO!

    I seriously doubt this happens, New Orleans is more likely to trade Collison and to be honest, if I am the GM of New Orleans- Harris plus the 3 pick might not get the deal done.

    It's a good trade for the Hornets IF Peja's and Mo Pete's contracts were thrown in.

    But if Lebron can't play with Rose as a ball dominant player, then he sure as **** can't play with Paul. Someone's stats will take a kick in the nuts.

    I'll say 1.5% likelihood of that happening.

    They could definitely chase Okafor and Collison by throwing in both Harris & Ching Chang Liang ,or whatever his name is, with the number 3.

    Harris at the 2 with Paul would be a very quick back court.

    NO Way!!!

    Chris Paul is possibly the best player ever to play for them, no way they dump him for a lottery pick that amounts to a frontcourt player that they do not need!

    NJ hates where they are drafting, so why should The Hornets trade away their best player for that pick

    This is a good idea....but not happening.


    Now The Wizards could do such a deal with the #1


    This is just like the rumor a couple years ago that had Dwayne Wade going to Chi. for the number 1 pick....only this is less likely

    This is such a stupid rumor.

    Who the hell are the Nets going to trade for CP3? They don't have any expiring contracts, they don't have any good players they'd be willing to part with, I just don't see it happening.

    Maybe if they traded Lopez + 3rd round pick and some more...but even then, it'd be a stretch since Paul is that good.

    No way is CP3 going to the Nets. NO is not going to accept a player who just came off a injury ( Harris ) and the 3rd pick for their franchise player. Are you kidding me? I agree with the others, for NO to even consider it the Nets would have to throw in Lopez and Williams with Harris and the 3rd pick.

    Harris wouldn't work. New Orleans is trying to SHED salary, and the last thing they'd want to do is add Devin Harris' contract which runs through 2013. The ONLY reason they would trade Chris Paul would be to shed salary - for an expiring contract! Harris' is NOT an expiring contract.

    It'd have to be the 3rd overall pick + Lopez + Williams and they'd probably have to get a 3rd team involved as well.

    I could see a trade like this happening.

    NO: Trades CP3 to Nets. Gets Lopez, Williams, 3rd overall pick, 1st rounder from another team
    NJ: Trades Devin Harris to 3rd team. Trades Lopez, Williams, 3rd overall pick to NO. Gets CP3.
    3rd team: Trades first rounder to NO, gets Devin Harris

    This whole thread is ridiculous.

    If NO trades Paul and gets Lopez, what are they going to do with Okafor?

    And if they get Harris, they still have a big salary and they still have a PG dilemmea.

    Smh at the people who believe this.

    Allow me to officially dead this thread!

    Peep the Daily News and they talk about how the NO has already turned down this offer and are not looking to move Paul


    We're even mentioned as team going after Pau in the article.....but I think our best bet is to over Curry for Collison and Okafor.

    There is a heavy rumor going around the internet of a possible 3 team trade involving the Knicks,Hornets and Wizards.According to multiple unknown sources the Knicks could be sending Chris Duhon to Washington in a sign and trade while Washington will be sending their 1st round pick to the Hornets.New Orleans will then send Chris Paul to the Knicks.The only obstacle that will prevent this trade from taking place is Mike D'antoni's unwillingness to part ways with Duhon.
