There is a possibility this summer that NO Hornets could deal IMHO Paul or Collison. Before you go off the deep end calling this unrealistic, you have to look at the facts . Collison is becoming a first tier PG. (had 20 assists the other night) He will be expensive to sign in another year or two. If NO could trade Paul bring in a hometown boy, proven 20+ scorer and move Collison in at the point this could probably make them a serios threat. Peja is on his downside with a year left on his contract creating a need for Granger. West is a PF that can light it up, this would make NO very good.
Yes, you would have to give up more than Granger, maybe 2 - 1st rnd picks and at least one of them unprotected. Collison on the other hand would require giving up picks also, he's no longer a secret. You might be able to get him for a high draft pick this year and a player. This would fill our need at PG. Do you make the phone ring in NO trying to pull this off.
NO would most likely want to deal Collison if a sweet offer came about, what would you give up for him?
