Real GM is posting two stories one of which probably involves our search for a new PG.
The idea that teh Hornets will consider trades involving Chris Paul probbaly make sense because trading him is the only legit way for them to unload enough salary to get away from paying a steep luxury tax penalty.........linked to LeBron as well.
If I'm Donnie Walsh I think about offering Eddy Curry, Wilson Chandler, Danillo Galinari and a couple of future #1s for Paul and Okafor.
I know it is a big lopsided trade in Ny favor but the Hornets are being sold and they would be getting away from Okafors deal and a big luxury tax hit while picking up a couple of nie pieces and two picks. Ultimately they cant make that trade but I would make the offer.
The Pacer story involves the Bobcats looking to buy their way into a draft pick. A target like Ed Davis or Udoh makes sense for Charlotte looking to get a young big to play defense and rebound.
They have no picks but a deal centered around Raymond Felton and Gerald Henderson could get done IMO. Felton and Henderson for Ford and #10 could make everyone involved happy with Felton getting 3 or 4 years in the 5mm per range.
Felton is actually my favorite PG candidate outside of Darren Collison who we cant get because we wont take back a big contract in the deal.
That also serves the great purpose of getting TJ off our payroll which symbolically makes everyone in Indy feel better.
I'll go ahead and predict that Raymond Felton will be our new starting PG as soon as the deal is allowed to be announced.
