NEW ORLEANS — Hornets general manager Dell Demps says New Orleans won't be rushed into dealing Chris Paul and that there's no timeline for a trade.
Demps says there remain "many options" for the NBA-owned Hornets to pursue in trading their four-time All-Star point guard and that the team and league will be diligent in "looking for the best one."
Demps says he's working "hand-in-hand" with NBA Commissioner David Stern and has not been discouraged or frustrated by the length of time it has taken to reach a deal that satisfies all parties.
Still, it appears the Hornets would prefer a quick resolution. The team has excused Chris Paul from a media event on Wednesday that is normally mandatory. Paul has not spoken with reporters since reporting for training camp last Friday.
