For a few weeks we heard trade ideas by Magic, Trail Blazer, Knicks, etc. fans on how to get Chris Paul for Bench Player 1, Bench Player 2, and a bag of Wavy Lays. Then, the past few months it's been CP3's gonna leave if you don't trade for him, him and him. I think that one Big Baby-sized splash, a Western Conference Semis appearance, smart signings, and a bright future will be enough to keep Chris around for a while. So, here are my ideas to keep Jordan CP3's on the court in New Orleans.
1. The Big Baby sized splash: http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=25zxlog
The Hornets would also send a 2011 1st round pick and cash considerations.
Hornets: New Orleans gets a standout defender who can put up points when given the chance, also Speights is a good young Center, who could really be something. Chris gets a superstar to pair with, and the Front Office shows that its commited to winning. Though I'd rather have Danny Granger, there isn't much that we have that they want.
Sixers: They dump salary and get an expiring contract in Peja Stojakovic, plus another 1st round pick.
2. The Western Conference Semi's. Not much I can do about that, but I DO think that that's attainable with the updated roster.
3. Smart Signings. Guys like Lou Amundson, Josh Boone, etc. = Low risk, high reward deals.
4. A Bright Future. All of this equals a bright future for the Hornets.
