Chris Paul could be wearing a Celtics' uniform next season if Boston's trade talks with the New Orleans Hornets are successful. Boston is engaged in trade talks with the Hornets for Paul, but they are not alone. The Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors have also contacted New Orleans about their All-Star point guard, according to a report (via Adrian Wojnarowski's Twitter).
Paul reportedly has no intention of re-signing with the Hornets. Although it is not his choice to make, Paul said that he would like to be traded to the New York Knicks. One drawback for the Celtics in this offer battle: Adrian Wojnarowski also reported (via Twitter) that Paul might be inclined to stay long-term if the Clippers or Warriors were to sign Paul's old New Orleans teammate Tyson Chandler.
