NBA Trade Rumor: Orlando Magic to Acquire Chris Paul?

June 22nd, 2010 by Evan Massey Leave a reply »
There have been some rumors flying around that the Orlando Magic and the New Orleans Hornets are talking about a possible trade of Chris Paul.

So far, we haven't really heard any names that would be heading back to the Hornets in return, so I'm writing this article to offer some possibilities.

The Orlando Magic have not had a legit "star" player in his prime to put alongside Dwight Howard so far, and acquiring Paul would definitely do that for them.

The catch?

New Orleans is going to be asking a hefty price in return, and while that may deter some teams from going after him, the Magic are willing to move a lot in order to acquire the franchise point guard they have longed to have for the past few seasons.

There are quite a few players that I'm sure the Hornets would love to acquire from the Magic.

Among those guys are Vince Carter, Jameer Nelson, Brandon Bass, and Mickael Pietrus.

My guess would be that the deal would look something like this:

Chris Paul
James Posey


Vince Carter
Jameer Nelson
Mickael Pietrus
Brandon Bass
