    According to CBS Sports, after the Hornets and Paul's meeting on Monday, Chris Paul still would like to be traded. What are your thoughts on this?

    The teams that New Orleans are looking into are New Jersey, Charlotte, and Orlando, but not Portland. How can Portland make a deal in this????

    Everything that you just said is wrong. New Jersey and Charlotte have nothing to offer for him. Orlando does not have enough. The only offer New Orleans even considered was Portlands offer. New Orleans backed out last second because they weren't ready to trade Paul yet. If they do decide to trade him, it is likely that Portland will be the ones that get him.

    Chris Paul did not ask for a trade. He is going to stay a Hornet for a while and see what happens. It did not say that he still wants a trade.

    I agree with that, but I'm not New Orleans and I don't know what there looking at with those three. Believe me, look it up. They pulled off the "smoke screan" to try to make everybody think hes staying when really what they are trying to do is sell the team. New Orleans owner is trying to sell the team but he thinks no one will buy the team without a star player.

    Yea, Charlotte and Jersey have nothing to offer. Favors and Harris is a nice package but Harris isn't expiring and they don't need another point guard. The whole purpose of dealing Paul is to get another player to surround Darren Collison with.

    Well of course Paul isn't going to want to be there if they are the same team as last year. He wants rings, just like any NBA player. I believe that they told Paul they are going to try to put some good players around him rather than have him leave the team.

    All the reports say they are looking to an Eastern Conference team (obviously because why would they want to face Paul 4 times a year), but what is more important, the package you get in return or not seeing the player. You always hear that in every big trade "They are looking to move the team to a team in the (insert opposing) conference" but then somehow Pau Gasol lands on the Lakers, somehow Carter lands in Orlando, somehow Randolph lands in Memphis, somehow the smoke screen clears and logic wins out. Hopefully that happens this time.

    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...
