Crazy Trade Idea

Chris Paul isn't happy in NO.  While the team picked up Okafor to show Paul they were serious about contending, if they keep on losing and tensions continue to strain, we could see New Orleans shift back to cost cutting mode.  And TMac and Brian Cook could cut some costs very quickly for them.  I would be afraid to mess with Houston's roster, as everything is working well and the team chemistry to perfect, but a trade sending Paul, Peja and Posey to Houston with Brooks, McGrady and Cook going to NO would allow NO to cut a lot of salary fast, and would still give them a talented, cheap PG.  

I don't really know what NO's financial situation is like or how much other teams value Brooks, and its difficult to compare talent versus cash savings; but what do you think about the trade?  I could easily see NO refusing to trade Paul for so little (Brooks and cap relief) but I can also see Houston refusing to take on so much salary and mess with team chemistry.

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
