Report: Orlando Magic Trying To Dump Vince Carter & Jameer Nelson for Chris Paul

It appears the Magic now understand what a catastrophic mistake it was thinking that Vince Carter was the missing piece of their championship puzzle and are trying to ship him out of town.

The object of their affection is Hornets guard Chris Paul who we reported yesterday possibly could be trying to wiggle his way out of New Orleans.

Fanhouse broke this latest story here are the details:

The Orlando Magic’s preliminary inquiry into the availability of point guard Chris Paul involved a discussion that included a trade of both starting guards Vince Carter and Jameer Nelson to New Orleans.

The Magic, as part of the early discussion, would receive both Paul and small forward James Posey, according to a second NBA source that confirmed the original FanHouse story by Sam Amick involving the two teams.

Ironically I was on twitter today talking about what Dwight Howard needs to become a more complete player and one of my suggestions was a dynamic guard, who was a leader and had a serial killer instinct  about him.

Chris Paul does meet those qualifications, but I still would be surprised (not shocked) if he is traded.

Original reports stated that World Wide Wes was trying to get Paul traded in a package deal to get him and Lebron James to team up “SuperFriends” style.

Now I hearing Wes is just trying to get Paul to a contender and out of New Orleans.

The Summer of Lebron continues.

    NO way jose, New Orleans will never do that trade, that would be the worse trade in NBA history. You guys need to stop with these ridiculous rumors. Dont you people no anything about sports, your a god damn sports web site. Anybody who has a brain knows this trade will never happen. Who would trade the best PG in the game for a SG whos old and cant produce and Nelson its crazy, Thanks but write some real stuff next time.

      Actually the stupidiest trade ever was when jerry bus traded kwame brown for pau gasol whoever did that trade was straight up silly

    • TardIN says:

      It doesn't make sense for NO, but worst trade of all time? Do you know anything about sports? I hate you so much.

  2. it's all speculation util something happpens, and we fans have no control over anything.

      Why would they do it? Because they could end up trading Jameer to Indiana for the 10th pick in the draft giving them 10 and 11…. Also, where is NO going right now?? absolutely nowhere and even Chris Paul acknowledges it by saying he's open for a trade if the team isn't serious about winning a title (which they're not) This trade would also allow NO to clear up cap space by dumping VC when his contract expires next year.. If Pietrus is involved in the trade he would become a FA next year too…. That allows NO to clear up around 23 Million dollars next year alone just from those 2 players…. Now imagine if NO were to include Okafor… That'd make it around 34 mill that they clear up…. So don't just assume that since NO wouldn't be getting as much talent as they are sending that it would be a bad trade for them…. Honestly, it would help out both teams.. NO isn't going anywhere so there's no point for them to keep Paul if he wants to win…

  3. I agree, man. While pleasant to talk about, this would be a stretch to pull off.

    otis smith will come back with a better offer,maybe add a draft pick in there with vince and jameer nelson…if cp3 wants a championshp he needs dwight howard to get it!

  5. markymark says:

    come to the orlando magic cp3, dwight and chris paul together would win championships!

    these two players need to move on . They showed there worst work in the playoffs what a lousy percentage with boston. They are not going to improve on what they did they were healthy. Yodeous

    For Magic fans, this would be a dream come true. Vince tried his best, but the fit was never there. Turkoglu would have been more of a threat in the Eastern Conference finals; maybe even helped them beat the Celtics. I agree that the Magic GM could sweeten the deal for New Orleans. Still far away from happening, I would guess.

    • Wooo! says:

      I don't think it'll happen, but Turkoglu is seriously overrated. As a Magic fan I used to watch games with his super-slow point-forward back-to-the-basket way of running an offense and cringe. We don't need Turdofglu back, I don't think we need to move Nelson either. We need a slasher that's a good 10 years younger than VC and more fearless. Maggette wouldn't have been a bad pickup if he could stay healthy for longer than a quarter of play.
