    Re: Bynum for Chris Paul

    I like the idea of the Hornets becoming the Sonics.

    In regards to the trade? I'd go for it in a heartbeat. We need a player like Paul, no disrespect to Fish as he's a smart player, but getting Paul would be huge. Would take an offensive load of Bryant, which has to happen. Bryant may also get 'better' shots having a guy like Paul on the court.

    Losing Brown and Blake for Okafor may be hard to swallow though. Okafor would give us a decent big. But we'd lose a lot of strike off our bench. Okafor is solid tough and would cover Bynum's departure. There's positives and negatives to the second part of that trade. But I'd want a big to cover Okafor. And Fish could cover Blake on the bench, and do a better job than Blake. Brown's loss would be the nasty part.

    Would love to see Chris Paul playing for us. Gives us a long term player for the future as well, unlike Bynum. We could also make some sort of play for Oden if that's possible next season to cover Bynum's departure. Although who know's what sort of role Oden would play when and if he returns to the NBA?

    David Stern to trade Chris Paul for Andrew Bynum?

    If that happens the value of the Hornets will go down. Stern will have a hard time selling a team with a franchise player that is a distant relative of Sam Bowie.

    Delusional if you are the hornets so far as I can tell.

    In Response to Re: Bynum for Chris Paul:
    In Response to Re: Bynum for Chris Paul : Solid response. See my other post for more in depth. What does 'I want a big to cover Okafor mean' And you have given up on Bynum as a 24-12 for many years Center? If the Hornets feel he'd be an injury prone bust that gets you 70 games one year 40 the next and goes for 17-9, then they don't make the trade. LA or whatever team gets Paul, probbaly has to take Oak's contract b/c it makes it that much more enticing for a future owner. You could toss in two 1st rd picks and try to take David West over Oak, but you don't get any bigger or able to defend Shaq/Perk... just get a few more points than Bynum would give you, and I doubt NO would do that over just getting a good return to rent West to another contender. Maybe toss in the 1st rd pick or two and try to keep Brown?

    Oops, that was a typo, substitute Bynum where I wrote Okafor.

    I'm more worried about us getting by OKC and San Antonio to be honest. Attempting to build a side to beat the Celtics would be our downfall this season if we go down that route.
