Paul a Laker?

The Hornets are informing teams that they will trade Chris Paul to the Lakers for Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom, reports Adrian Wojnarowski.

Sam Amick is corroborating the report, and there were reports earlier today that New Orleans was confident a deal was in place with L.A., so this sounds like a done deal. Signing CP3 would be a major coup for the Lakers, though they have to sacrifice Bynum in the process (and with him, their likeliest centerpiece for a Dwight Howard trade). There is no mention of the Rockets in the report, despite earlier talk of a three-team trade.

Not bad... hopefully we get some draft picks in return also.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Updating a previous post, the Hornets are now expected to trade Chris Paul to the Lakers in a three team deal with the Lakers (Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol) and the Rockets (Kevin Martin, Luis Scola and Goran Dragic).

The Hornets are expected to get Lamar Odom, Kevin Martin, Luis Scola and Goran Dragic, while the Rockets get Pau Gasol. This is a major coup for the Lakers, who now have an All-Universe backcourt and managed to land CP3 without losing Bynum, the likely centerpiece of an offer for Dwight Howard. It's ironic that this blockbuster, which enriches one of the highest-spending big-market franchises in the league (at the expense of a small-market league-owned franchise), went through on the same day as the new CBA. Keep checking Rotoworld's player news for all the fantasy fallout.
