A Yahoo! sports report today claimed Chris Paul‘s agent told the New Orleans Hornets his client did not want to sign an extension with the team, and was requesting a trade to the New York Knicks. However, the Times-Picayune is reporting, through two NBA sources, that Paul has not requested a trade to the Knicks. Paul met with the media today, saying, “My heart is in New Orleans.”

When asked about the trade rumors, Paul responded, “I don’t think about it to tell you the truth.”

The Los Angeles Clippers and the Boston Celtics have reportedly contacted the Hornets about a trade for Paul. In regards to the Celtics, a report yesterday suggested Paul would not sign an extension with Boston, quickly squashing rumors of Paul heading to Beantown.

However, Paul to the Knicks will continue¬†up to the point when¬†Paul is actually traded, and if he’s not, up until the trade deadline.

Hornets General Manager Dell Demps has not met with the media since the lockout was lifted. Once he does, expect him to be bombarded with questions regarding Paul trade rumors.
