Does Chris Paul want out of New Orleans? If he does or doesn't, it could easily happen.
The Hornets, who are currently owned by the NBA, won't make a trade for the point guard unless it means a bright future for the franchise in turmoil. The city of New Orleans actually went as far to buying tickets to home games just to avoid the franchise's escape clause due to low attendance.
While a lot of guards like Steve Nash and Monta Ellis have been inquired about, none of these names are more enticing than Chris Paul.
So what does the four-time All-Star bring to the table?
Paul is an elite passer and defender, and not a shabby defender either. He has amazing court vision and has cut down his turnovers the last few years. He could be the most complete point guard in the NBA. Oh, and he is a triple-double threat any night.
There are plenty of teams that could use the help of Chris Paul to make them championship-caliber.
A trade for him is highly likely this year, especially if the Hornets aren't in serious playoff contention come All-Star break.
