Knicks Offered Amar'e Stoudemire In Rejected Chris Paul Trade, According To Report

The New York Knicks has offered to trade Amar'e Stoudemire to the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for Chris Paulaccording to the New York Post's Peter Vecsey. But the Hornets rejected the deal on Thursday.

The Hornets did have a CP3 trade in place on Thursday, one that would have sent the All-Star point guard to the L.A. Lakers with the Hornets landing Lamar Odom and three players from the Houston Rockets (Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and Goran Dragic). Pau Gasol would have gone to the Rockets. But David Stern vetoed the deal from the league-owned Hornets' position.

That the Knicks are willing to unload Stoudemire for a guard after reportedly reaching a deal with free agent Tyson Chandler -- CP3's former teammate in New Orleans and an elite defender -- is notable. The Knicks brought All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony to town last season to pair with Stoudemire after picking up the big man in free agency.
