    We all heard of "The Decision", right? Kicking sand in the face of your homeland is a bigger at the end of the day though so I hope you're right.

    Multiple league executives say the Knicks are now in the lead to land Tyson Chandler, jumping in front of the Warriors.
    If the deal goes through, the Knicks use amnesty on Chauncey Billups and move Ronny Turiaf to make room for Chandler, sources say.
    Can confirm @WojYahooNBA detail that one scenario in Chandler deal has Billups being traded. Amnesty also a possibiity.
    If the Knicks' next move is to engage NOR in CP3 talks for Stoudemire, this is not something that Amar'e would be happy with, at all.

    I sort of hope Amare gets screwed over here and the Knicks get Paul. I'm not rooting for anyone who bails on their team. So Amare takes his medicine and then the Knicks pretty much make a lateral move because Amare and Billups is just a good a combo as Chandler and Paul.

    I really don't get what more the Rockets have to offer.

    The Knicks could also wait it out for Steve Nash next year.

    They could offer him the full MLE this summer.

    Hou has what New Orl wants in trade 4 CP: established players (Scola, KMart), youth (Budinger, Patterson), 1st-rnd picks (Own, NYK'12)..
    If Paul ends up in LAL with the Lakers only giving up Gasol we should all be prepared for the Lakers having Paul, Kobe, and D12..... oh yeah, and Turkoglu!

    More agent Andy Miller on Knicks exposing Billups to amnesty waiver wire: "....unless it's a team he chooses himself. Buyer beware."


    WojYahooNBA Adrian Wojnarowski
    Agent Miller on Billups: "He has no intention of being open-minded about any possible situation where a team would claim him off waivers.."


    WojYahooNBA Adrian Wojnarowski
    Just spoke to Andy Miller, agent for Chauncey Billups, who describes his client as "irate" over possibility of Knicks using amnesty on him.

    Chauncey is M-A-D!

    Chauncey did not want to leave Denver, but ended up leaving anyways. He can be mad all he wants, but if the Knicks want to move him, he'll be moved.

    The Knicks hailed Amare and Billups as part of the next run for a title and now they're going to stab both of them in the back. Brilliant. That's how to build a strong reputation with the agents.

    Well, in fairness to the Knicks, Amare was a consolation prize and the Knicks wanted Melo not Billups. Not sure the KNicks ever saw Billups as part of their core given his age and decline. I'm not sure I understand the Paul trade. If the Knicks have Chandler, Melo and Amare, well, that's a pretty great core. They are set at the #2. You don't need a great PG to run that team, just someone decent. Still, I get the argument that Paul/Chandler/Melo is better than Chandler/Melo/Amare. Lot more balance.

    Everyone hates the Lakers....

    Those dirty Lakers... next target is D12 I assume. Although giving up Odom certainly makes a trade a little more difficult.

    The Los Angeles Lakers are nearing an agreement to acquire All-Star point guard Chris Paul in a three-team trade that will cost them Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

    The Lakers are finalizing the trade with the New Orleans Hornets and Houston Rockets. Under the terms of the deal, the Lakers would send Gasol to the Rockets. The Hornets would receive Odom, Rockets guards Kevin Martin and Goran Dragic and forward Luis Scola, league sources said.

    “It’s not finalized, but we’re close,” one front-office official involved in the negotiations said.

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slu...ets_nba_120811
    That is a good deal for the Hornets:

    Lamar Odom
    Kevin Martin
    Goran Dragic
    Luis Scola.

    I wonder if any draft picks are involved?


    *EDIT* Actually, it wouldn't go down as this. The numbers do not work.

    *EDIT2* It would work as two separate trades. LAL-NOH, then NOH-HOU with Gasol getting traded twice.

    I've always liked CP3 but now I'll learn to hate him cause he plays on the stankin' Lakers. Please don't follow suit D12...

    The Hornets just got better by trading their all-star. Who knew. Good for them. Scola is tough as nails and very underrated. Okafor and him make a nice front court. Odom can come off the bench or play the 3, Martin is a flat out scorer and Gragic is a nice backup. New Orleans is very solid now.

    I see holes in the Lakers. Sure, they now have arguably the best back court in the league, but what about their front court? I can definitely see either Dallas or OKC. (or maybe the Hornets now) coming out of the west. Full marks to Will Demps.

    Don't forget it appears they also got a 1st round pick (Knicks 2012) and a second round pick (not sure from who).

    Source confirms 3 team deal sending Chris Paul to Lakers is done. Gasol to Houston. Odom, Scola, Martin, Dragic, 1st and 2nd to NOH.

    I'm interested as to see who the Lakers will try to offer Orlando for D12. I'm thinking the Nets have the inside track.

    The Hornets and Rockets just got on the mediocrity treadmill, in my opinion. They'll both probably make the playoffs, but I don't see what the point is, quite frankly. I thought both Utah and Denver did way better than New Orleans.

    And for those wanting to know how you can get a franchise player without going through a rebuild? Do it like the Lakers. Of course, it helps if you're team is located in Los Angeles.

    I do find it funny that, after all the talk about wanting to level the playing field, the two biggest names on the block go to New York and L.A. And Miami and the Clippers might have gotten the 2 best non-center free agents.

    Imagine if Orlando agreed to it. You could say that Orlando would only agree to in exchange for World Peace.
