Los Angeles Clippers Acquire Chris Paul from New Orleans

After news late last week that the Lakers’ trade for Chris Paul was vetoed it appears that Paul will be on his way to Los Angeles after all. This time, however, Paul has been acquired by the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Clippers were able to acquire Paul from the Hornets for a package of players built around young guard Eric Gordon and the first round pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2012 draft. Included in the deal are center Chris Kaman and forward Al-Farouq Aminu.

The Hornets certainly received more value in this particular trade than they would have gotten from the Lakers and Houston Rockets in the trade that was agreed upon last week. In the previous trade the Hornets would have acquired Lamar Odom from the Lakers as well as Goran Dragic, Luis Scola and Kevin Martin from Houston.

The more puzzling question for Lakers fans has to do with NBA commissioner David Stern’s approval of this trade compared to the last. Especially since his main reason was his refusal to allow Paul to dictate his ultimate destination. Regardless, for the Clippers this is certainly an exciting turn of events. Paul has agreed to opt into his contract for the 2012-13 season, leaving Los Angeles with at least two years of Paul and Blake Griffin on the same team.

    I’ve been a loyal fan of the NBA since I was a kid and even through this lockout and the 99 lockout i remained loyal but now they’ve gone too far. I find it funny that last night it was reported the Lakers were trying to get CP3 again and the next day David Stern trades him to the clips right away after rejecting their first offer. I called it last night that this would happen today. I guess every team but the Lakers are allowed to have multiple superstars. Fuck Stern and those other 28 owners.

    David Stern is an official Laker hater period. If Miami can have a big
    three, New York can have a big three, why can’t LA? My point proves that
    he didn’t discriminate any other team besides the Los Angeles Lakers.
    He definitely showed that along with another hater such as Dan Gilbert.
    It’s alright though, CP3 is going to be a free agent next year coming
    up. Lakers will definitely acquire him from free agency. #Lakers Nation
