New York Knicks Rumors: Chris Paul? Not So Fast

ESPN analyst Chris Broussard said Monday morning that the New York Knicks had a 'great chance" of eventually landing New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul. Monday night another ESPN analyst, John Hollinger, contradicted Broussard.

"It appears the only realistic way that Paul can end up in Gotham would be if he is willing to take a massive pay cut. He would likely make about 60 percent as much in New York as he could make in New Orleans and, even in the best-case scenario, forego tens of millions of dollars compared to playing in other markets … So if Paul really wants to go to New York, he can go — as long as he’s willing to give up, at a minimum, forty million dollars to do it. (The same, incidentally, applies for Deron Williams or Dwight Howard.)

So, what we have here is a battle of the analysts. Will CP3 end up teaming with Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire? Truth is, nobody knows. At least, though, we are talking about basketball and not lockout or legal stuff.
