    After weeks of rumor and conjecture that Chris Paul wanted out of New Orleans, and after initial denials that such feelings were true, the Hornets point guard officially let it be known he wants to be traded. Paul has let New Orleans ownership and front office brass know that now is the time to work out a deal.

    So far, the teams interested come in two different directions. One being the teams that have an inherent need and desire to have Paul on the roster. The other being the list of teams Paul would like to go to.

    But where does he fit best? Some teams fit better than others, but which is the likely landing spot for Paul based on these specific categories?
