Is there any chance we can get Chris Paul?

Is there any chance we can get Chris Paul?

Postby younghooper on Sat Jun 04, 2011 7:43 am

I know he's supposed to be a free agent either this summer or next, but what are the chances we get him? I'd rather see CP3 on the team than Dwight if I had to choose. I feel that we have a solid big man already (Bynum)

Your thoughts?

So go after the guy with a worse knee than Kobe or Andrew because both of them actually have a meniscus :bang:

Did I mention that he couldn't even defend Fisher on isos either in the series as derek blew by him many times?

Nothing is impossible, but we have a better chance of picking up Deron Williams than we do picking up CP3.

There's little chance of that happening unless he decided he wanted to force his way here. Even so, the Lakers have few assets to offer New Orleans.

I honestly rather Deron Williams - Deron/Brook for Bynum I feel Deron is more what this team needs than Chris Paul, this team doesnt have the athletes to make use of Pauls full skillset .....Deron and the pick and roll in utah would be similar to what Brown would use - and Kobe/Pau pick and roll with Deron would be great.

CP3 is an amazing player but would rather have D. Williams.

I don't see LA going after either.. Tony Parker possibly.

Chris Paul is even less likely than Dwight Howard

For some reason I don't even feel like he would want to come here.

I would take CP3. But I dont think Lakers need a point guard like CP3. Lakers could get someone like Raymond Felton. I have heard a trade like Pau Gasol+Blake for Monta Ellis and Dorell Wright. Lakers get a quick slashing player who could play PG (Ellis) and Lakers finally get a better wing player (Wright) then Lakers would have space to sign free agents and then pick up a backup center in the draft or something.
But I would rather have D-Will becuz if Paul gets hurt; then wat? Even though CP3 dominated Lakers this postseason (like every other point guard has done this season) he still has not been himself. He has lost that blazing speed/quickness; he is still quick but not like he used to be.

Whoever made up that trade proposal needs to be shot immediately.

Pau for Monta and Dorell? Where do we bend over?

The Nets are working without a, well, net by trading for Deron last year. If by the trade deadline they felt he wasn't going to re-sign with them and the Lakers offered Gasol and Blake... who knows? It might be the best offer for them to try to save face before he bolts.

No chance this ever happens unless Jim Buss gets over his love fest for Andrew Bynum.
