The New York Knicks failed to sign LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade who have all decided to play together in Miami. So far they have landed one blue chip free agent in Amare Stoudemire. The NBA heartbreak team for years now may just bag another key player soon.
New Orleans Hornet Chris Paul is one possible candidate as he is reportedly demanding a trade to the Knicks, Orlando Magic or LA Lakers. The Hornets are on a decline, missing the playoffs in the 2010 NBA season. They ended the regular season with a losing 37-45 win-loss record.
It seems that the Knicks with new acquisition Stoudemire could be a good fit for Paul. The Lakers triangle offense would only inhibit Paul from displaying his great individual skills. Orlando Magic is a good option for Paul given its roster of talents that instantly puts them in title contention.
Paul signed up on a two-year extension with the Hornets thinking that they were title contenders. Now that he realizes are way past their peak, he appears to be taking the same route that LeBron James took… moving to a team with more potential to get deeper in the playoffs. Hornets management is set to have a meeting with the star point guard, hoping to sell a more attractive winning future for Chris Paul with his current team.
