    Can everyone help contribute to this thread?

    1. Hornets: I have a hard time imagining NO management convincing him that they are building a contender. I also can't see them wanting to retain a disgruntled elite PG. I say he gets traded.

    2. Knicks: CP3 would want to go here for the chance to play with Amare and possibly Carmelo BUT what do the knicks have to offer the Hornets in return? I guess knicks can still be an option if they get a 3rd party involved. I think NOH stays away from the Knicks option

    3. Magic: CP3 would want to go here for the chance to play with Dwight Howard. If you put Dwight and CP3 together, they can be a dynamic duo for many years, and just keep building around those two. They went to the Finals two years ago. They also have some good pieces to trade to NOH. I say they've got a good shot.

    4. Mavs: CP3 would want to go here to play with Dirk, Caron, Haywood, Chandler. I want to say The pieces they have to offer are just mediocre. I think the downside here, is that they don't have an elite Center in Haywood.

    5. Blazers: CP3 would want to go here to play with BRoy, G.O., LMA, Batum/Wesley. I think the big plus of going here, is that the starting 5 is Young (not too young) and very talented. We've got a big man with loads of potential but also an elite player in BRoy. In addition, LMA is very very solid. So they can be good for a long time. This is a very good nucleus. The Blazers roster is deep, so if your NOH, i would say that you can get more in quantity than quality. Not to mention the expiring contracts.

    So who's got the best shot? I say the order is Magic/Blazers/Mavs/NOH/Knicks

    What do you all think? Feel free to correct me on any of my logic. I must admit im not very knowledgeable when it comes to contracts and the rules of trades in the NBA.

    I'd love to see him here.... but Magic look like the team that he'll end up with, and they'll be able to compete with the heat in the east.. The east starters from the all star game will all be from Florida hahaha. But i think it just makes the western conference that much weaker. Even without Paul, we can fight with the Lakers for the Western Conference title because so much talent has or will have moved to the east.

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
