At least according to CBS, Chris Paul is putting together a strategy to get out of NO.
as long as we make some sort of offer, or at LEAST contact them about it...i will be happy
FORGET CP3! Get the next best avail. pg and center! CP3 doesnt want to be here...Knicks, Magic or Lakers for him unfortunatley
You guys should have known CP3 wasn't coming here when he signed with LeBron James' marketing firm.
After reading about the power and influence the CAA now has in this league, all the prior talk about CP3 interested in returning home to play is in the past. He has stars in his eyes and is being steered towards the big market teams. We're probably out of the running before it even begins.
Just curious why some people are so eager to believe some things and refuse to believe others.
When people on this forum and in this city talk about a mutual interest we're dismissed.
When people from this city told people on this forum that he could potentially be had, we've been dismissed.
When the Bobcats made a trade that looked very much like the move before the move to get Dampier and people said as much, we were dismissed.
Now, a CBS writer, a very good writer (the very writer that dispelled the Bower wanted to trade CP3 rumor that people were using to refute all CP3 talk) says that CP3 may never play another game for NO and it's taken as gospel, but so are his "primary choices."
So now, people concede he may well be on the move but are quick to continue dismissing all of the intelligence that has been gathered in this city saying that he could come here.
He's got an "exit strategy." It would be difficult for all of his primary targets to swing a deal for him, and yet his hometown team has positioned themselves very well for this moment (and well before this story surfaced) and you think its a coincidence? You think him being in this arena multiple times since his season ended is purely by luck?
It's still possible that he never plays for the Bobcats, but to say that the odds haven't increased in MJ's favor is absurd.

I remember another guy that wanted to go to the Cavs/Lakers ect. A few days later he came out and said he would play where ever.
