First it was the Lakers, then it wasn’t. Then it was the Clippers, before it wasn’t again. Now, according to a Yahoo! Sports report, the NBA has approved a Chris Paul trade, after all. CP3 lands in Los Angeles with…the Clippers.
The details, from Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears:
The NBA has reached an agreement to trade New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
The Hornets will receive guard Eric Gordon, center Chris Kaman, forward Al-Farouq Aminu and theMinnesota Timberwolves’ unprotected first-round pick.
Assuming all the paperwork goes through—not an easy assumption—Chris Paul will be throwing alley-oops to Blake Griffin this season, although getting him cost a hefty price tag. Will it work out for LAC?
