Chris Paul requests deal to Knicks chris paul

Via Yahoo-
Chris Paul?s(notes)?agent informed New Orleans officials on Wednesday that his client will not sign a contract extension and wants to be traded to the?New York Knicks, league sources told Yahoo! Sports...The Hornets will be motivated to make a deal as soon as possible for Paul, and aren?t completely determined to get a point guard in return for him, sources said. They?re willing to play?Jarrett Jack(notes)?as the starter for the rest of the season, and mostly want to gather the best possible package of overall talent and draft picks...If Paul were to opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent after this season, he could sign a maximum four-year, $74 million deal with another team. The Knicks currently would have enough salary-cap room to offer him a four-year, $55.5 million contract with a starting salary of $13 million.
Could it happen sooner before later?
