Hornets general manager Dell Demps says star guard Chris Paul did not request a trade during a meeting with New Orleans executives.

Demps says he is confident that Paul will be playing with the Hornets this season after Monday's meeting, which included new coach Monty Williams and team president Hugh Weber.

In a statement released by the team, Paul says he likes what he heard during the meeting from the Hornets about the "direction they want to take the team."

Paul also says he hopes to remain with the team for years to come.

Paul has two years remaining before he can opt out of his current contract with the Hornets.
