   2017 NBA Manifesto

Chris Paul
PG, 6’0, 175lbs, 32 years old, 12 years of experience

Despite advancing age, Paul does not seem to have lost anything. His slight downward trends in some statistical categories come only as a result of rightly managed minutes. Still one of the best defensive point guards in the game, if not the best, and still able to take over a game offensively, even if he often doesn’t. To retain him means to likely overpay him in the back end of a new contract, with no guarantees that revenues and BRI will rise enough to offset the huge percentage of the salary cap his contract would take up. But to lose him means to disappear from relevance.

Player Plan: Has exercised an ETO and will become a UFA. The price to re-sign him would be the max, almost certainly for five years. Pay it.

   2010 Summer League Rosters: New Orleans Hornets

But don't be mistaken. Collison's awesome rookie season does not make Chris Paul available for trade. The only way Chris Paul gets traded is if Chris Paul demands it. And if the Hornets succumb to that pressure before they do everything possible to better the team - which includes, but is not limited to, getting value for that Peja Stojakovic expiring - then they should be ashamed. Darren Collison is good, but Chris Paul is an all-time calibre point guard. You don't trade all-time calibre point guards just to move Emeka Okafor.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
