Magic Now Atop of Chris Paul’s List

The Magic have replaced the Knicks as Chris Paul’s first choice if he can get himself traded out of New Orleans. New York, Portland and Dallas are also still on Paul’s short list. As reported by Chris Broussard: “The Orlando Magic have emerged as the top team on Paul’s list of preferred destinations, replacing the New York Knicks, according to league sources. While the Knicks are still high on Paul’s list, he believes the Magic, with All-Star center Dwight Howard, would be a better fit. Paul also realizes Orlando has much more to offer New Orleans in a trade and therefore believes it is a more realistic destination than New York, according to the sources.”
