Chris Paul requests trade to NY

Chris Paul’s(notes) agent informed New Orleans officials on Wednesday that his client will not sign a contract extension and wants to be traded to the New York Knicks, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

As soon as the NBA lifts its lockout restrictions, Hornets general manager Dell Demps wants to meet with Paul and hear that directive from him.

Nevertheless, the prospects of the Hornets executing a trade with the Knicks appear to be relatively dim. The Knicks simply don’t have the trade a.ssets that come close to meeting New Orleans’ criteria for a deal. Demps has been listening to overtures from teams around the league, and has been actively working under the a.ssumption that Paul would reject a contract extension.




The Hornets have no intention of letting Paul walk away at season’s end without trying to get maximum value for him. There are several teams, including the Boston Celtics, that could be willing to make a deal for Paul with the hope of convincing him to eventually sign an extension.

The Hornets will be motivated to make a deal as soon as possible for Paul, and aren’t completely determined to get a point guard in return for him, sources said. They’re willing to play Jarrett Jack(notes) as the starter for the rest of the season, and mostly want to gather the best possible package of overall talent and draft picks.

Paul has reached out to Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard(notes) recently, encouraging Howard to find a way for the two to play together, sources told Yahoo! Sports. That would be a difficult scenario for the Knicks to make happen. Paul’s desire to join the Knicks was cemented after he spent so much time in New York over the summer with close friend, Carmelo Anthony(notes).

Paul’s representatives are selling teams in addition to the Knicks on finding a way to acquire Howard and Paul, league sources said. However, one team executive said: “It’s pretty one-sided from Chris Paul’s camp. I don’t think that Dwight is buying into any of that right now. He’s not pushing it.”

If Paul were to opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent after this season, he could sign a maximum four-year, $74 million deal with another team. The Knicks currently would have enough salary-cap room to offer him a four-year, $55.5 million contract with a starting salary of $13 million.

Several teams, including Boston, Golden State, New Jersey and Houston have been aggressive in trying to find a way to make a trade for Paul.

none of the celtics requested anything

the only request made was by pierce and that had nothing to do with teaming up, just for the team to get better

I just heard this on ESPN and if players want to do this you might as well get rid on at least three teams in the NBA because of being a failure and not making profits ever.

They wouldn't trade amare, defeats the purpose entirely.

Knicks would trade a bunch of valueless 1sts, fields and expiring Billups.

Paul knows this is the only way he gets there is forcing their hand. NO doesn't want that garbage a.ss deal but if he tells them there's no chance he resigns then I guess they just might

It won't go through because the Knicks traded all of their a.ssets for Melo. If Paul wants in he'll have to take the 40 million $ pay cut and sign as a free agent. Which he probably will. But LOL at anyone thinking this lockout was about anything other than money. Dwight gonna end up in LA. Paul gonna end up in NY. Yea...clearly this lockout was about ensuring the small market teams could compete. It was about ensuring the small market team owners could buy that new yacht.

Pretty much, it's the only way to be traded and get a max contract at the same time. Realistically, New Orleans will do what's best for them and a knicks package is probably one of the worst in the league right now.

no its not, its thanks to the players being pussies.

are you not aware of how the celtics acquired ray and kg? we didnt just sign them after they chit chatted with pierce syaing how co0o0l it would be to play together, we gave up damn near our whole team for them.

that is 100% different than CP3 saying "i want to go play with melo and amar ein ny" or lebron and bosh saying "we want to play with dwad ein miami"

you know im not wrong, but believe what you want regardless the NBA is soft
