Trade Idea to get Portland Chris Paul and Al Thornton

I've been messing around with the trade machine for a couple of hours and I just couldn't figure out a way that Portland could get Chris Paul. In the trade machine he has a poison pill provision (PPP) and it expires July 1st, 2009. Since there is no way I can simulate all the contracts for after this date I started reading the CBA to teach myself how to make trades.

Let me tell you, PPP and BYC players are a real headache to trade. So I came up with my first successful trade after learning how the system works. 

The teams involved are Portland, New Orleans, Memphis and the LA Clippers:

 

4 team trade

 

 

There is probably no chance any of these teams would do it besides Portland. Although I wonder if the Clippers wouldn't be happy to get rid of Thornton since that will be Blake Griffen's spot when they draft him. The Hornets would end up saving money once Chris Paul's huge check needs to be sent out, but I'm not really sure if Memphis would want to take on two scrubs with the cap space they have.

 

This trade was mostly for fun, but I think it's at least interesting. Maybe KP will throw it out there on draft night. Sweeten the deal by throwing in some of those 2nd round draft picks.
