In retaliation to the latest news that the NBA has vetoed the trade that would send Chris Paul to the Lakers, the perennial all-star will not attend Hornets training camp on Friday. Camps are set to begin for all teams on Dec. 9, but Paul will not be joining his fellow players. Paul believes the deal is still on hold and he will wait a little longer before making his next move.
The rejection to the Lakers-Paul trade shocked the entire league, and Paul is not willing to let Stern dictate his future. In addition to sitting out of Hornets camp, Paul has spoken to Billy Hunter and expects to use the players unions’ legal powers to push the trade.
