Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets, perhaps basketball's best point guard (although Derrick Rose and Deron Williams have convincing arguments), is likely to be on the move in the summer of 2012.

One team that allegedly might court Paul's services are none other than the NBA's newest franchise, the Michael Jordan-owned Charlotte Bobcats.

Paul, when asked about the situation, said he would be open to the idea, and additionally stated that it would be an honor to play under Michael Jordan in North Carolina.

"To have a personal relationship with him now and for him to be a mentor of mine, it's something when you're growing up as a kid in North Carolina you would never expect." Paul stated, before turning everyone's heads by remarking, "I think guys do and will want to play for MJ. Who better to learn from?"

In order to get CP3, the Bobcats are going to have to offer some of their best players, regardless of the situation.

Using ESPN.com's NBA Trade Machine, I will take a look at five possible trades that would get Paul to the city of Charlotte, and look at what New Orleans could get for him.

With all that in mind, I hope you enjoy and thanks for reading!
