    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.

    Getting Chris Paul would be awesome for the Nets.

    BUT if they just kept Harris, Lopez, and drafted Turner or Favors...with all the cap space...they might be better as a full team.

    Paul is amazing and with Lopez its game over but the Nets have a chance to have 3 all stars in Harris, Lopez, and maybe future Turner/Favors...plus signing one max guy.

    The Nets might be better off not trading so much for Chris Paul
