Today the New Orleans Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Clippers for Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman and Al-Farouq Aminu plus an unprotected First Round Draft Pick. Paul seems to be excited about the move and is looking forward to playing alongside reigning Rookie of the Year Blake Griffin.
The question of the day is will this trade increase or decrease Chris Paul’s collectability?
Now that the Chris Paul trade has gone through I think many people are turning their attention towards the possibility of the Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard being traded. This has been an interesting situation beginning last week when the Magic brass claimed the Nets began talks with Dwight Howard violating the NBA’s tampering policy. This was followed by rumors that Howard would demand a trade on Friday, the first day talks could begin and low and behold, Howard did indeed demand a trade on Friday morning. Reports have claimed a Howard trade is in the works with the Nets but the Lakers and Mavericks have also begun to appear in rumors. Currently the Magic claim trade talks are off and they are trying to work things out with their star Center but according to Howard’s Twitter and Facebook page the trade request is still on. Only time will tell.
Question #2 of the day, will Dwight Howards collectability increase or decrease with a trade to the New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets? How about a trade to the Lakers or Mavericks?
