CP3 had such an unlucky career so far, all the injuries, losing that mvp to kobe, which clearly he should have won, losing in 7 against the spurs in the west semifinals, losing byron scott and now west...

He's going to look around and in the end probably re-signs with the Hornets at around what his contract would have been: 7-8 million for a couple more seasons. I don't think there is a lot more for him out there.

If he goes anywhere, it's to the Rockets (youngsters), Lakers (Bynum or Gasol), Celtics (Rondo) or someone similar with a good player/s to give back. Main part of the trade in (brackets)
It's not about the package,it's about CBA and CP3.

If CP3 wants to be a Knick and new CBA allows it - HE WILL BE A KNICK

I don't blame him for Opting Out. I just opted out last week. Those telemarketing calls will annoy the shit out of you.

Even if he doesn't make as much money next year, opting out might be better for him because he can have a longer contract.

I'm pretty sure he was talking about David West. No way Paul signs for the MLE lol

The way I see it, 3 teams really have a shot at him: The Knicks (cap space), Lakers (trade) and Clippers (cap space). Maybe Portland and Orlando.

Guaranteed $8, or opt-out and face an uncertain market, with an uncertain cap and uncertain rules -- all following surgery.

West is very good, borderline all-star, he'd be beautiful on SA/Phx/Bos/Cle/Orl and he has balls...

...but its not the choice I would make.

knicks will have capt space no matter what next season, may it be 9 mil or 15 mil, it depends on which way the cba puts the cap at. and with the cba shrinking the salaries, 9 mill might be enough to get chris paul

Honestly, I think the best case scenario for him is to hope he can work out a longterm deal with the Hornets. The only problem is that with the NBA owning them, David West having a longterm deal along with Okafor will actually make the franchise look less attractive to a buyer.

This is without a doubt a sign of the end if New Orleans cant bring him back, I know they like Carl Landry but West is a better & more consistent player.
This is what I came here to post.

Wouldn't mind throwing a few dollars at him and bringing him to Phoenix.

Probably not going to happen, though. Seeing as we just drafted Markieff.

The New Orleans Hornets owner was asked what he thought of David West's decision. Sir?












He had no comment.
