David West opts out… is this the first chip to fall for Morey’s "quest for the one?"

The New Orleans Hornets are in trouble.  Not just with the roster either, but the entire franchise.  It's actually a unique situation, but very complex.  David West's decision to opt out may be the spark that causes a wildfire(sale) for the organization.  I don't want to get into whether or not it was a good decision for him personally, but instead what does this mean for the Hornets' franchise moving forward.

Let's face it, if the Hornets aren't competitive, they are irrelevant to the NBA, Southwest Division, and the state of Louisiana for that matter.  While Chris Paul leaving for greener pastures may be imminent, another team signing West would all but be the nail in that coffin.  In fact, it may accelerate the movement of CP3.  Due to the Hornets' financial situation, this may be that special case where "young," "cheap," "solid" role players and future picks that Houston has acquired may pay off.

From the position standpoint, the PG may be the deepest spot on the roster, rivaling the PF.  While Houston may be "set" currently at the position, this could be our chance to acquire "that" player.  You know, the perennial all-star who's one of the top 3 at his position, maybe the best all-around.  This is where it gets fun, and all you Morey jrs have to realize that parting ways with something you love has to happen.  Personally, i gave up fishing every weekend for a relationship, not that any of you care.  So here goes nothing, bash me, praise me, agree or disagree...  But let me know if this improbable transaction has any legs.  And oh by the way, there's currently 14-15 players on the Rockets right now who supposedly need to play this season, so let's keep that in mind.  Obviously Kyle Lowry would be the centerpiece in what is given up.

 Edit:  This isn't about Houston acquiring West, it's about CP3 being moved to the highest bidder.  The title offers more of a cause and effect meaning.
