    I guess I could have put this in the "Hornets watch" thread, but thought this merited it's own. 

    From ESPN:


    Chris Paul and the rest of the New Orleans Hornets will soon be playing for the first franchise in league history owned by the NBA.

    Sources close to the situation told on Sunday that the league's fast-moving plans to take temporary control of the Hornets are going ahead "100 percent" and will be publicly confirmed within the next few days, mirroring what Major League Baseball did with the Montreal Expos before that franchise was sold and moved to the nation's capital as theWashington Nationals.

     The next paragraph talks about this putting Paul's future in a new light of course. Any thoughts?

    All this means is that there will be another team that gets every single call go it's way

    You should put this as the top 10 major markets available or willing to buy a basketball team.  L.A. doesn't need another team, so count them out, but I wouldn't count Stern out for wanting New York to top that list for a second team in new york city, or maybe even try and go international with this one... My list would probably have Seattle at the top..

    good find. Frankly, I'd be surprised if they end up staying in New Orleans. Even during the 11-1 start or whatever it was, they couldn't draw the fans out to the area.

    Isn't that a conflict of interest...

    Good move for stability.  I'm of the opinion that the Hornets are not long for New Orleans.  They will be either moved to Kansa City (leading candidate IMO) or contracted.

    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...

    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...
