    Default CP3 open to playing in NYC...

    Our whole roster might be gone if DW can pull this off!!! I will be floating all summer...

    Many people around the NBA and those close to Chris Paul believe the Hornets are now open to trading him.

    Paul is open to playing in New York or with the Nets, according to sources. Paul was furious when his name was mentioned in Memphis trade rumors.

    The Blazers have long been one of Paul's most adamant pursuers and have 'bordered on tampering' with the point guard, according to Wojnarowski's report.

    William Wesley and Maverick Carter have been involved in Paul's affairs as well and the former has attempted to shop Paul to other teams.George Shinn issued a statement on Wednesday that did not include an assurance that Paul won't be traded.

    GM Jeff Bower isn't shopping Paul, but he isn't rejecting proposals flatly as he was a few months ago.

    if donnie gets his hands on paul ... the roster is basically all gone ... with approximately 44mil left to fill the spots

    That's amusing to think about. What would it take?

    I posted this in another thread here as well, but I could see NO wanting Lee, Curry's contract and maybe one more player. That would allow them to shop David West and maybe chop down on his $8 mil next season and that would leave them with 3 solid, young, talented and semi-proven players in Collinson, Thorton, and Lee. Then Peja and Curry's money off the books next year alone would be above $25 mil.

    They could go shopping next offseason with a nice chunk of their core players under contract. That would be a nice situation for them, depending on who becomes available next year.

    We don't have the assets to trade for one of the best players in the league. Our greatest asset for NO is our cap space. We would have to take Okafur AND Posey in order to get Paul.

    Ok....this isnt going to happen, but.... if it were here is what I think it would take

    Gallo,Douglas,Wilson and a pick and us taking on Posey

    This dops 13 million into our cap

    we could still sign a max and David Lee.

    But we would have to fill out with league minimum players, which with this sort of talent would not be very hard

    Paul/Duhon
    Posey/Walker
    Lebron/Tim Thomas
    Lee/Tim Thomas
    Jermaine Oneil/Barron/Curry

    We can Trade Whoever as long as we dont trade Gallinari.

    You say this like it is a bad thing!!! With Okafur at the 5/4 and Paul and the 1, throw the fact that we also have gallinari, walker and douglas (assuming we would have to include chandler in the deal) this roster would be one of the more attractive rosters for LaBron. We would have a better core than Chicago or NJ and Paul is good friends with James so....

    Yeah that would be stupid. Let's say no to Chris Paul in order to keep Gallinari.

    Look I like Gallo too....and comparing two players who play different positions is kinda hard....but if Gallo was a better SF then Paul is a PG, then he would be Lebron James or at the very least Melo!

    If we had a chance at Paul and Donnie balked because he didnt want to part with Gallanari then he would be on Isiah's level!

    enough of these fools "saying" they like NY or talk about how great the Garden is

    it makes me sick. Unless you sign with the Knicks who gives a F if you like New york

    These dudes are just using the Knicks to get themselves better incentives/perks from other teams

    As a knick fan i am sick and tired of all this BS....either you sign with us or shut up

    Curry, Chandler and Toney D (I'd miss him so). A combined salary total of slightly less than $14.5M

    FOR

    CP3, Peja and Mo Pete OR Posey. A combined salary total of roughly $36.2M

    NO lose $36M from their cap and add $14.5. Leaving them under the cap with $51.5M, down from $73M. Curry adds an asset to trade or expire. So, $21.5M in savings for them right there. Instant FA contenders/flexible options in the rebuilding process. They'd still have Collison, West and Okafor and could make a play for the Warrior's 6th pick with Ellis, although that's unlikely. Just an indication of their flexibility as a team under the cap.

    We could still sign Lee.

    Would they take Curry's contract for cap space and Chandler or Douglas???

    I dont think that was worth more than Devin Harris and the #3 pick which, according to sources, the Hornets denied.

    Devin Harris just wasn't going to work - NO is NOT going to take on anything that isn't either a rookie level contract or an expiring contract.

    I think it'd probably take us Curry, Gallo, Chandler, and probably two or three first rounders a few years down the line.

    When you're a Knick fan the only two options that you have is dreaming and watching old videos of the Knicks 90's teams.
