    COULD PAUL BE TRADED?
    New Orleans star point guard Chris Paul insisted he was serious when he said there's a chance he soon could be traded.
    Paul was interviewed Thursday by Pro Basketball News, and asked about his team's financial situation. The Hornets are staring at being well over the luxury tax, and might have to dump some big contracts.
    "In this league, anything can happen," said Paul, at the summer league to watch his Hornets. "I can be dealt."
    Paul then was asked that surely he can't be serious he could be traded.
    "It's possible," he said. "It's possible."
    The Hornets made a move last February to save money by dealing center Tyson Chandler to Oklahoma City. However, the trade ended up being rescinded after health concerns surfaced regarding Chandler.
    Paul is hopeful the Hornets will end up retaining their key players, but knows nothing is certain.
    "Right now, it looks like the same cast," he said. "But, if something happens, it happens. ... Me and (forward James Posey say to one another that) we've got to work with what we've got and go out and play hard."
    Posey hopes the Hornets won't end up again dealing Chandler.
    "You never want to see it," Posey said. "But I'm a player and my job is to go out there and play hard. ... You can't control that part of it (the Hornets' money situation). You've got to control what you can."

    Rip for Paul would be nice,....Stuckey would be the back up for both Paul and Gordon.

    Or Stuckey and Max and second round draft pick for Paul?

    Somebody do the numbers and lets get this trade going...

    He's useless to us. He can't play shooting guard.

    we dont have any of the pieces to get this guy. if new orleans trades him then they're basically saying that they dont want a team.

    I don't think we have the cheap talent they want to make a deal work. We also don't have any expiring deals except for Kwame Brown.

    I would at least try to offer them something. Stuckey, RIP ,#1 pick and cash.
