The Official Trade Deadline Thread

Howdy.

So we know there's a 87.8% chance Dell Demps makes his 700th move some time between the next two Thursdays. We also know that 97.9% of "TRADE IDEAZ" threads devolve into stark raving madness within three hours of their respective inceptions. It is with those things in mind that we proceed.

Consider this a Hornet specific version of ESPN's Rumor Central as well as a place for rampantly speculative trade talk. Here are the rules.

RULES

1. I'll update this post with any "official" trade rumors as seen below. I'll try not to make too many of them up. 

2. Format your trade ideas thusly in the comments:

New Orleans sends Marcus Banks, D.J. Mbenga to Los Angeles
Los Angeles sends Blake Griffin to New Orleans

3. If you like someone's trade idea, rec them, +1 them, reply to them, whatever. 

4. You can post trade rumors which I will also steal from to update the original post.

5. No trades involving David West (see below) or Chris Paul (for all of our sanity). Everyone else fair game (assuming it's a legal trade)
