Chris Paul

  1. Billups not happy he could be moved by whims of a superstar. Again.

    Dec 3, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    Chauncey Billups is not chopped liver. He is a five-time NBA All-Star, an NBA Champion and finals MVP. He’s a rock in the locker room, someone highly respected by other players around the league. He’s a damn good point guard. And last year he was moved on the whims of a superstar, yanked out of…

  2. Rondo’s not really cool with this whole “we may trade you to a non-contender, but seriously we love you” thing

    Dec 3, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    How would you like it if you found out, through the media, no less, that your employer was thinking of shipping you to a worse company in exchange for someone who everyone says is so much better than you despite his never having reached the pinacle of your profession and your longstanding success with your…

  3. Why are we talking trades for Paul, Howard? Money.

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Since about three minutes after David Stern and Billy Hunter sat bleary-eyed in a New York conference room to say they reached a deal, we have been talking trades. Specifically Chris Paul and Dwight Howard trades. The two superstar, franchise cornerstone guys who can opt out as free agents next summer and may push their…

  4. Report: Chris Paul knows he’s not getting traded to Knicks

    Dec 2, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul may have asked to be traded to the New York Knicks. Or he may not have. But either way he knows he’s not getting there by a trade. That is the spin coming out of the report this week that Paul demanded a trade to play with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire in…

  5. Rondo wants to be a Celtic, wants clarity from franchise

    Dec 2, 2011, 2:38 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo wants to be a Celtic. And he wants some clarity. That’s what his agent, Bill Duffy, told A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Duffy had a conversation with Celtics GM Danny Ainge Friday, and you can bet trade rumors that had Rondo being shopped for Chris Paul — something that is not going to…

  6. Report: Hornets wouldn’t mind a Paul for Stephen Curry deal

    Dec 2, 2011, 1:11 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    This is a long shot, it’s more about a glimpse into the thinking of the New Orleans Hornets as they do a dance with Chris Paul. If it comes to trading Paul, the Hornets have their eye on Stephen Curry, according to a tweet from Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News. Multiple NBA…

  7. Chris Paul denies requesting trade to New York. As he must.

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:31 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    This was inevitable and predictable. And it doesn’t change one thing. Chris Paul has officially denied that he has requested a trade to the New York Knicks. Here are the quotes via the Times-Picayune. But two league sources confirmed after the story broke that Paul’s agent, Leon Rose, never made the request to the Hornets.…

  8. Chris Paul could get his max deal in New York… just don’t bet on it

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul wants to go to the Knicks. Chris Paul also would like a massive payday of a bird-rights extension — five years and $100 million. But he can’t get those two things the way Carmelo Anthony did, the new collective bargaining agreement takes that away. The Hornets could (in theory) do a sign-and-trade with…

  9. Report: Chris Paul’s agent tells Hornets he will not sign, wants to be Knick

    Dec 1, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This might be David Stern’s worst nightmare. The only thing that would make it worse is if union lawyer Jeffrey Kessler were Chris Paul‘s agent. Paul has informed the Hornets front office that he will not sign an extension with the team and that he wants to be traded to the Knicks, reports Adrian Wojnarowski…

  10. Danny Ainge: No plans to trade Rajon Rondo

    Dec 1, 2011, 2:20 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Okay Celtics fans, you can stop now with plans for your 10-team trade where the Celtics send out Rajon Rondo and get back Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard and Rudy Gay. Rajon Rondo is going to stay a Celtic, Danny Ainge said Thursday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. Danny Ainge says he has no plans…

  11. Thursday morning one liners: NBA rumor mill keeps churning

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  12. Tyson Chandler expects to join new team

    Nov 30, 2011, 9:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Tyson Chandler was the anchor of the Mavericks championship defense. In an era with no hands allowed on the perimeter, you can’t win without a big who can protect the rim. He was a key change that took them from contender to pretender. In a surprise development on the first day that NBA teams and…

  13. David West drawing interest from Pacers, Warriors, more

    Nov 30, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    David_west

    David West (kind of like Caron Butler) is an interesting free agent case — he’s 31 and coming off major knee surgery. Combined those are a pretty massive red flag. But he has been a good, borderline All-Star (he made it in 2008 and 2009) forward who is one of the best pick-and-pop bigs in…

  14. Wednesday morning one liners: Portland loves Brandon Roy

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Do not underestimate the love of the Blazers fan base for Brandon Roy, or how that could weight into plans to use the amnesty clause on him. Carlos Boozer thinks the Chicago Bulls can win an NBA title. This year. How desperate are the Knicks for a big man to take a one year deal?…

  15. Reports: Chris Paul won’t sign in Boston; Pacers talk to Celtics

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:23 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    There is a lot of smoke around the Chris Paul to the Celtics rumors, enough to make you think there is some fire. But that is a very, very different thing than saying this trade is going to happen. More likely it is not. Why? For one, take this tweet from Chris Broussard of ESPN.…

  16. Boston open to Rondo trade, but Chris Paul hard to land

    Nov 30, 2011, 8:04 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    It shocked some Celtics followers and a lot of basketball fans around the globe when it was reported Boston was open to trading Rajon Rondo. However, it didn’t shock those around the team. Boston has been open to the idea of moving Rondo for a couple of years, but only for a perfect deal, reports…

  17. Report: Clippers will go hard after Dwight Howard

    Nov 29, 2011, 4:17 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard

    This is what a star like Blake Griffin can do for a franchise. A year ago, the Los Angeles Clippers were not on anybody’s radar as a free agent until they got desperate. Now, in one day they have popped up as a potential landing spot for the two biggest free agents on the market.…

  18. With rumors abound, Lakers near a franchise crossroads

    Nov 29, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Though the formalization of the new CBA proceeds at a slow churn, the NBA rumor mill is already in mid-season form. Chris Paul and Dwight Howard — both in the final year of their respective contracts — are suddenly ready to be shipped every which way, and media outlets of every form are examining the…

  19. Rumor: Lakers to make run at Dwight Howard AND Chris Paul?

    Nov 29, 2011, 12:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Chris Paul

    Now we know the lockout is officially over because ridiculous, outlandish Lakers trade rumors are flying around and gaining some momentum. Like the Lakers getting Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Reality be damned. These ideas gain traction because Lakers fans dream big. Outlandishly big. Plus Lakers ownership can be bold. It’s one of the reasons…

  20. Report: Boston “open” to trading Rajon Rondo

    Nov 29, 2011, 9:34 AM EDT

    Rondo_Mavs

    We suggest before reading this report you have a shaker of salt with you. Unless you’re a Celtics fan, in which case you should have blood pressure medicine with you. But know up front we don’t totally buy this. Chris Broussard at ESPN has suggested the Celtics will listen to offers for All-Star point guard…

  21. Report: Chris Paul eyeing Knicks or… Clippers?

    Nov 29, 2011, 8:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony

    When the New Orleans Hornets reach out to Chris Paul not long after Dec. 9, they will offer him a max deal that will have one more guaranteed year and be worth $27 million more than what any other team can offer. That’s a lot of money. And there are not many people — even…

  22. Winderman: Chris Paul rumors show why Hornets need owner fast

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:44 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony

    Since the NBA last bounced a ball, one team has changed hands (Philadelphia) and another was sold only to have that deal fall apart (Atlanta). All the while, a franchise that might have as great an impact as any in reshaping the league remains in the hands of the league (New Orleans). While the NBA…

  23. Are the Knicks considering Kwame Brown? Apparently.

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:14 AM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    Free agent priority No. 1 for the Knicks — maintain projected cap space for next summer so they can try to bring in one more star player (cough* Chris Paul *cough). Priority No. 2: find a big defensive minded center, but one will take a one-year deal as not to screw up priority No. 1.…

  24. LeBron, Wade, ‘Melo homecoming tour now just one game

    Nov 28, 2011, 9:54 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Duane Wade, Carmelo Antho

    The summer (and fall) of NBA charity games has come to an end… but not without at least one more. The “homecoming tour” to be anchored by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony has been cancelled, to be replaced by one game in New York this Tuesday. Games in Akron, New Orleans…

  25. Heat, Knicks may be big winners in last minute deal changes

    Nov 26, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Heat Mavericks Basketball

    Part of the motivation for the hardline owners during the NBA lockout was to never let what happened with LeBron James going to Miami to ever happen again. To never let what Carmelo Anthony did to the Nuggets ever happen again (they lost the ‘Melo part of the fight). Small market owners didn’t like players…
