    Default Chris Paul is (not) about to be a LA Laker

    Adrian Wojnarowski
    The Hornets are near a deal to send Chris Paul to the Lakers for Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom, league source tells Y! Sports.

    The Hornets have started to inform teams that they're sending Chris Paul to the Lakers for Bynum and Odom, league sources tell Y! Sports

    Thought this mega deal deserved its own thread...

    On the other hand, no way do they get Howard now with bynum gone.

    They gutted their only decent bench player, but I'm pretty excited to see what Paul, Kobe and Gasol can do.

    Also, they are down from one of the deepest frontlines in the NBA, to the thinnest.

    This was always the deal that made the most sense for New Orleans if available, Bynum.

    Who are the Lakers going to get to play upfront? Is Okafor included?

    New Orleans is going to Seattle within 2 years.

    The Angels getting Albert Pujoles, the Lakers get Chris Paul.

    A good day for LA sports. What else is new?

    If I were the Hornets, I'd ask for Pau Gasol.

    That's the elephant in the room. The only bigs left on their roster are Gasol and Derrick Character.

    Gasol and Bynum together is a bit much, even for Paul.

    Correction: The proposed deal to the Lakers is Chris Paul for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom, source says. (Huge difference!)

    I don't think this makes them better, they would need to get a big man.

    jesus, that's so much worse for both teams, unless a Bynum/Howard deal is in the works, and I don't see Orlando doing that swap straight up.

    If their attendance was bad WITH Chris Paul and a playoff team each year, imagine it now.

    They never established themselves in New Orleans and they just don't seem to care about basketball there so they would be appreciated more in Seattle, but they need a new arena.

    Andrew Bynum's games played, by season:

    2005: 46
    2006: 82
    2007: 35
    2008: 50
    2009: 65
    2010: 54

    That's 160 missed games over his six-year career, 124 over the past four seasons. He'll have a head start on missing a good portion of the 2011-2012 season, too, given his five-game suspension to begin the season.

    Good luck building around this, N'awlins.


    Edit: The deal's now being reported as Gasol to New Orleans, not Andrew "Broken-Down" Bynum.

    Gasol and Odom for CP3? I don't like that one bit for the Lakers. That's too much. If (when) Bynum is hurt, they have nothing upfront right now.

    I guess they figured they needed a PG more than a center.

    Kobe is pretty much a combo guard anyway. He often brought the ball up and led the offense.

    So I don't know. We'll have to see how they do and what kind of chemistry they can build.

    I think they are sending Gasol to Houston, what a horrible deal for CP3 :

    I think that this could be good news for us as well. NO likely moves both players for players such as what we discussed earlier.

    How does Gasol for Hans, DC, Rush and a #1 sound ??

    New Orleans actually has a squad if they keep Odom and Gasol.

    Agreed. JJ, Ariza, Odom, Gasol, Okafor makes the playoffs.

    So David West certainly won't return to NO. I hope they sign Kris Humphries so he and Odom can be teammates. You know, since they're practically family and all.

    I don't like Paul with Kobe...I'd laugh my *** off if they missed the playoffs this season. Any chance Bynum gets flipped for a package?
