Chris Paul Rumors Heat Up

Dave Pingalore of Local 6 is reporting the Magic could be on the verge of acquiring New Orleans point guard Chris Paul if they can find a third team to take New Orleans big man Emeka Okafor.

Local 6 sports director David Pingalore, through his NBA sources, is confirming the deal could be completed as soon as Orlando Magic General Manager Otis Smith finds a third team for Hornets Center Emeka Okafor.
If for some reason that deal does not work, the Magic have a backup plan.
The Chicago Bulls sent Kirk Hinrich to Washington on Thursday, and according to Pingalore’s NBA sources, he could be traded with Al Thornton and Randy Foye for Vince Carter.

There have been rumblings about Paul for the last two days but this is the first I’ve heard of the second deal.

    Chris Paul’s future with a grandeur of excellence and achievement is with Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson and the Los Angeles Lakers; any other move by Paul will be lateral and insignificant in propelling him into being one of the all time greats in Professional Basketball; in addition with Paul and Kobe, the Lakers would position themselves to win tow or more consecutive championships in particular if Fisher stays around and be Paul’s back-up. Dr. Jerry Buss and Magic Johnson without haste work with New Orleans to make this transaction.
