Clippers Clippers are close to acquiring Chris Paul

Quote:
The Los Angeles Clippers are close to acquiring All-Star point guard Chris Paul in a multi-player blockbuster trade with the New Orleans Hornets, according to a report in The Los Angeles Times.

The paper, citing two sources familiar with the discussions, reported late Sunday the deal would cost the Clippers center Chris Kaman, backup guard Eric Bledsoe, second-year forward Al-Farouq Aminu and Minnesota's unprotected 2012 No. 1 pick.

The report said both parties were in the final stages of negotiations and that the NBA will likely review the deal on Monday.

The Clippers know that Paul is unlikely to sign an extension with any team that trades for him because the rules in place in the NBA's new labor agreement make it more advantageous for top stars to play the season out and then sign a longer deal in free agency, even if they're staying with the same team. But sources told ESPN.com earlier Sunday that the Clippers, in one scenario, merely wanted Paul to pick up the 2012-13 contract option at the time of the trade -- thus delaying his free agency by one year -- if they would cede one of their two most prized trade assets for Paul: Eric Gordon or a future No. 1 draft pick.

TBH, I would be surprised if Gordon didn't go if CP3 agrees to pick up that extra year option.

Yeah, if I was hornets, I wouldn't accept anything without Gordon. What's happening though is Clips don't want the same thing to happen to them as what happened with the Odom and him wanting to leave if the trade doesn't go through.

The NBA is pretty much making any team who wants Paul give up their whole roster. It's insane. I think he'll stay in New Orleans because no team is willing to give up what Stern is demanding. If Clipper make this trade, it makes nnooo sense to me. They Already got Mo Williams as a pg. They would be giving up Gordon, who is one of the most underrated players in the league. IMO, Chris Paul for Kaman and Gordon would have been good.

At least the league is making a stand saying hey, you want a top player...You're going to give up more then his worth. Will make the top players stick around and not leave their franchise.

The New Orleans Hornets and Los Angeles Clippers have submitted a multiplayer blockbuster deal to the NBA that would send All-Star point guard Chris Paul to Los Angeles, a source with knowledge of the discussions said Monday.

But the trade as presented has at least one stumbling block: The league, which owns the Hornets, wants the Clippers to add Eric Bledsoe to a package that already includes guard Eric Gordon, center Chris Kaman, forward Al-Farouq Aminu and Minnesota's unprotected 2012 first-round pick.

The deal would be done if the league hadn't asked for Bledsoe, according to one source close to the process.

thats a hundred times better for the hornets. gives them a borderline young allstar, a core of young high potential players, cap relief and a possible second top ten pick in this years draft.

way better looking than the original deal.

This is like the 2nd/3rd trade for CP3 that seems to be falling apart. Probably Stern ended up demanding more. But its ridiculous how gordon Bledsoe, Kaman, Aminu and Minnesota 1st guaranteed top 3 just for CP3

If this goes through and they keep Gordon and match DJordon, Clippers are going to very good team in the West

i think it's a decent haul for nola without gordon. obviously it's better with him, but cap space, a decent pick, and 2 young talented guys is a pretty good haul for a rebuilding team. if they dropped gordon and threw in their own pick (and filler if necessary) it would be a really solid deal.
