Chris Paul responded to the news of Utah trading Deron Williams with several less than flattering tags directed to the Jazz.

"Utah traded DWill?? #EpicFail #notagoodlook #trippin #cmonson," wrote Paul.

The Hornets are in a similar situation with Paul as the Jazz were with Williams. Both point guards are eligible to become free agents in 2012, but the Hornets have been aggressive in making a series of trades to improve their chances of retaining their franchise player.
