ESPN Reports Lakers Back into Chris Paul Sweepstakes

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Despite the fact that the Los Angeles Lakers could not acquire Chris Paul due to the David Stern’s veto, the team is reportedly back in the hunt for the all-star point guard. According to sources, the Lakers have reemerged as a destination for Paul, and the front-office hopes it can present a better offer to the league office.

Update- The Lakers have turned their focus from a Kobe-Paul-Howard core to a Kobe-Paul-Bynum team

The Lakers tried to include the Houston Rockets in their previous push for Chris Paul, but David Stern did not find the players ‘good’ enough. Stern insisted that the Lakers and Rockets add in younger players into the deal, and he didn’t believe Kevin Martin or Goran Dragic could help the team.

The Lakers could look for help from the Minnesota Timberwolves or Golden State Warriors, two teams that have young, talented players. The Lakers already spoke to the Warriors about a trade centering around Pau Gasol, so perhaps the three-team deal could include the franchise from the Bay Area.

    Are you kidding me????

    There has to be a deal out there for a power forward that they’re looking at. If anything I would say Andrea Bargani for Luke and Steve (whom Toronto can cut/amnesty) after the CP3 deal is completed. Or Al Jefferson (doubtful) and lastly, either Charlie V. (Det) or Andray Blatche (Wash) . Also can we sign Terrico White? He’d be nice learning from Kobe. Peace, GO LAKERS!

    We need to make somthin happen its game time baby

  • Anna

    I want Chris Paul on our team!!!!!!!

  • Mario

    It will the dumbest season in laker history if they move both pau and Bynum after letting odom go for nothing come on the lakers had four if not five good players now they go down to 3 players Kobe Paul and Howard and no bench might as well call ourselves the Los Angeles heat

  • kevin cha

    why are the lakers so stupid!? dont they ever u should always sticvk with ur first pick!? get cp3!! stupid enough to trade odom for dumb first round pick. whoever made that trasaction is so pathetic

  • Rich K

    I think any prospective trade for Paul by the Lakers will be kyboshed by Stern. If they gave the entire team he’d stop it. He has to reclaim face.

    • Pamela

      Sad but I agree with you

  • JR

    I would really love this deal if lakers get mcroberts

  • raed

    how about chris humphries plus cp3 ?

    cp3-kboe -world peace – chris humphries.bynum

  • Nikko

    Is this the big deal? And what happens if Bynum gets hurt again?

    • abraham

      Second the sh** out of that

      • ray

        true but if he doesn’t they will be amazing

  • Skim

    Unless its impossible to get DHoward, this is a idiotic move. Howard should #1 on the wish list, especially since we let go of Lamar. Sigh… I hope this has nothing to do with Jim Bus’ reluctance to let Bynum go.

    Mitch/Lakers Organization should of prepared for this long before the first CP3 deal was offered. We were fine with the core that we had (PG/KOBE/LAMAR/PAU/BYNUM) and all we needed was a decent PG to fill in for Fisher. Why the Lakers didn’t make a move for Delonte West, Mike Bibby & Chauncy Billups beats me…I think we’re in for a lousy 2011-2012 season :0(

    Did I mention we have yet to find a decent PG to start for our team?

    Kapono?
    Green?
    McRoberts?
    Thompson? Who?

    I hope all those are chips Mitch got to throw in for a “BIG DEAL”

    I’m not worried about this season at all.iknow Mitch has something up his sleeve…Go Lakers!
