Hornets Have Chris Paul Trade Offers from Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State Warriors, and Boston Celtics

New, comments

Both CBS Sports' Ken Berger and Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski report that the Hornets are engaged in serious Chris Paul trade negotiations with a number of teams. Both specify that the Clippers and Warriors remain the Hornets' preferred trading partners and that both teams have been encouraged by Chris Paul's camp to possibly sign free agent center Tyson Chandler to a long term deal.

As of now, Paul's camp has not indicated that he'd guarantee signing an extension with any team outside of the New York Knicks or the Los Angeles Lakers. However, this doesn't seem to have deterred the Celtics, Warriors, and Clippers from making sizeable offers.

From Berger's and Wojnarowski's latest columns, here are the latest offers put forth by those three teams:

Clippers:

ALREADY INCLUDED: Eric Gordon, DeAndre Jordan (CBS)
POSSIBLY SOON INCLUDED: Eric Bledsoe, Al-Farouq Aminu, 2012 unprotected 1st round pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves (Y!)

Warriors:

ALREADY INCLUDED: Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson (Y!)
POSSIBLY SOON INCLUDED: signing of Tyson Chandler to make an extension more appealing to Paul (CBS)

Celtics:

ALREADY INCLUDED: Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green, 2 future first round picks (CBS)
POSSIBLY SOON INCLUDED: players from third party teams Celtics are currently pursuing (Y!)

Keep in mind that the "ALREADY INCLUDED" trade offers would be swaps that would not be contingent on Paul extensions; essentially, those are prices the Celtics, Clippers, and Warriors are willing to pay for a Chris Paul rental.
