Is it possible that the New Orleans Hornets would consider trading superstar point guard Chris Paul?
Well, lots of things in this world are possible. For example, It’s possible I am going to walk down the street here in Las Vegas into a casino, bet my life savings on Red on a roulette table, close my eyes and hope for the best. But, I’m not going to.
And, the Hornets aren’t going to trade Chris Paul.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports:
In response Friday, Hornets President Hugh Weber said the possibility of them trading Paul is zero.
“There is no chance of him getting traded,” Weber said sternly. “I don’t know how to say it any stronger, but there is just no deal we would contemplate for Chris. I can’t speak for Chris, but I think he was talking about the nature of the business and the fact that the question was asked the way it was.”
“I have not nor will I enter any discussions for him,” Bower said.”(Trading Paul) is not going to happen. I think what Chris said just shows his selflessness that he’s not different than anyone else on the team.”
