The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to surrender Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom in a trade for New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul, sources tell ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

Sources close to the process tell Stein that the Houston Rockets remain part of the talks and are trying to complete a deal that would send Gasol in Houston and the Rockets' Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and Goran Dragic to New Orleans along with Odom.

Pau must be pretty pissed off. So will Odom too, if I were to guess. That guy will have to be pried away from LA.

Feel really bad for Pau.... his play was the difference when he came over to LA a few years ago. They don't win those titles without him.

Now he has one bad playoff run and he gets the heave-ho?

Ouch.

new orleans comes away with a HUGE deal if this happens.

CP3 was gone anyway, so i love this trade for them - if it happens.

Agreed. With the package they are reportedly getting, they still have a good chance to make the playoffs this season. They have enough talent at least.

This is horrible for L.A.... they just lost their big front court. If bynum goes down (which is pretty likely) , they are done for good.

Still a confusing move for Houston, from my vantage point.

Jack
Martin
Odom
Scola
Okafur

Ahhh, i don't think so. The only thing i'll say is that they still need to add a bench.

How do you figure?

They have West, Martin, Dragic and Scola.... that ain't half bad. WAY better than our roster.

The Hornets projected starting lineup assuming they don't make anymore changes.

Jack/Dragic
Martin
Ariza/Odom
Scola/West
Okafor.

They will be better than us, I can almost guarantee that.
