ESPN is saying that the Dubs are balking at the idea of trading Curry without an assurance of an extension from Paul. Same with the Clippers & Gordon.
I've read that we will do the trade regardless.
I can find the links after I'm back from work.
No need to find the links, I believe you. At this point it's ALL speculation. I just don't think it's a good move. Curry's a very good player who's still on his rookie contract and is gonna be with the team for at least the next 3 years. And you're also giving up two guys with the potential to be very good role players. For a year of Chris Paul, hoping that his buddy Tyson Chandler (who you haven't signed yet) can convince him to stay? Bad move, IMO.
You do this deal every day of the week if CP3 wants to stay, but not under these circumstances.
