on the realgm.com website there is a mock draft article. the article states a rumor that atlanta and NO may work out a draft day deal. Al and the #2 would go to NO for magloire and the #4. There would obviously have to be cap filler involved, but I thought it was interesting none the least.


"4.) New Orleans Hornets : Chris Paul, PG, Wake Forest, So.

There have been some Hornet rumors that have them trading center Jamaal Magloire and this pick to the Hawks for the #2 and Al Harrington. Iím not sure if that works under the CBA trading rules right now because Magloire is a base-year player, meaning that his contract doesnít escalate with each passing year, so his cap number is different for him. If the rumors arenít true, then Paul still is the best choice right here. He and J.R. Smith would be one the best scoring and most exciting backcourts in the league, even if only 8,00 people in New Orleans will be watching. "
