The trade: Aaron Brooks, Shane Battier, Jarred Jeffries, Jordan Hill and/or Pattrick Patterson plus 2 first round New York Knicks draft picks for Chris Paul and a J. Wright trade exception.
Why Houston does it: I don't know why any team wouldn't want to trade for Chris Paul. Great scorer, great passer and a great defender. Best point guard in the league and Houston needs a superstar.
Why New Orleans does it: The problem for Rockets fans is the Hornets won't trade Paul until they start losing, which it doesn't look probable anytime soon. But if they do start losing and Paul wants out, Aaron Brooks is a young budding star who can score.
Then you get $14 million of combined expiring contracts in Battier and Jeffries and two young guns in Hill and Patterson, who have great potential. Also two first-round New York Knicks picks which can be lottery picks if the Knicks continue to falter
Chances it happens: 1/10
