    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.

    LMAO

    Devin Harris contract is a nightmare.

    They're trying to trade AWAY bad contracts like Okafur NOT bring them IN.

    It goes against everything that's been rumored.

    They are not trading away their superstar for a mediocre player with yet another bad contract and a #3 pick.

    The Daily News sucks at making bogus stories look legit.

    are you kidding me, the hornets are going to trade chris paul for devin harris lol. The hornets would only do this mid season this year, if the hornets look terrible, and chris paul has not recovered 100 percent from his injury prone season. No way going into a season do you sink your ship like that if you truly have future considerations of winning championships which I feel that the hornets organization has in mind. this is stupid and why we post threads like this is unreal.

    and p.s this rumor gets canceled out by the real rumor of them dumping collison in order to dump a hefty contract. That is the more likely, so that they can sign a melo or who ever. Chris paul you build around, you dont trade him for nuts and bolts.

    This has to be the most made up rumor of Free agency yet. The Hornets would be retarded to trade CP3 for the number 3 pick.

    Well obviously Brook Lopez would have to be included for New Orleans to consider the trade. I don't think there is any truth though to this happening.

    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
