    Right, we're talking about the Knicks here. Why not though, CP3 would still be a draw over what they have and put butts in seats at the garden. Plus, that vet presence right? Knox, Barrett, CP3, maybe they make the playoffs, it's a start.

    Just like Chris Paul has wasted no time in showing that he is not capable of running a team when it matters most.

    As has been implied several times by the national media (rightly IMO), the FO won’t trade CP3 unless it makes us better, and there aren’t many scenarios where that’s the case.

    Forget CP3s contract, and just think about him as a player. Is he the same guy he was 3 or 4 years ago? No. Is he still one of the best PGs in the league? Yes. If he was making say $20 million, everyone would be talking about how he’s an indispensable part of our championship aspirations.

    IMO, unless Llull is committed to coming to the NBA, Houston will stick with CP3.

    Personally i think that team has like -0 chance of making the playoffs and if i'm the Knicks i would never trade for Chris Paul, even if i can get him for free, but that's just me ;)

    Knixies have been so laughingly bad, so dysfunctional for so long and yet there isn't an empty seat in the world's most infamous house...

    I don’t care if the trade makes us better or not we need to get out of that contract.

    Miami could be an option - CP3 + scrubs for Dragic (expiring), Josh Richardson, and Olynyk

    We're not getting anything, only question is how many picks we're gonna send out.

    CP3 + 2 1sts for Jrue + Salary

    E'Twan Moore works.

    Pls gitrdun Mry!

    CP3 returning hero to New Orleans. Veteran who can mentor Zion. By the time they need to pay Zion, CP3 will be off this awful deal.

    It works. So just do it.

    Really don't like reading TF "grumbling" about players/$$$ to underlings and them telling reporters about it. Organization really needs to tuck its shirt back in. Getting real loose and sloppy on Polk Street.

    Do you really think someone would do that? Just go on the radio and tell lies?

    Trading Cp3 will require taking back bad contracts. Then Rockets can get rid of the trash they receive with picks every other year, for about 10 year's.

    Trading for CP will probably go down as one of if not the worst move in Morey's tenure.

    Look at what we gave up to get him and what we will have to give up in terms of draft capital to get rid of him.

    The Knicks sell out every game? What about their TV ratings?

    This would be one of the most epic gifs in sports history if CP3 didn't pull his hammy the next quarter.

    Whatever it is something will get done. Can't wait to see what the organization really has in the works, in regards to getting the team ready for next season!
