Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Spears of Yahoo! are reporting that Chris Paul's agent has informed the Hornets that he will not sign an extension with the Hornets and wants to be traded to the New York Knicks. I've been downplaying this stuff so far, but now the circus begins. Excuse me while I go have a drink or ten. UPDATE: John Reid of the Times-Picayune says that Chris Paul has not requested a trade to the New York Knicks, according to two league sources. Welcome to the soap opera that is now your lives, Hornets fans.
