Three-Team Deal Sends Paul to Lakers?
According to numerous sources, the Los Angeles Lakers are in discussions with the Houston Rockets and New Orleans Hornets in a bid to land Chris Paul.
The bait would be Paul Gasol, the primary piece the Lakers have been offering to the Hornets over the past couple of weeks for their available All-Star point guard.
The Lakers have not been willing to give up Andrew Bynum, a less-established player than Gasol, but one (based on age, potential and salary) with dramatically greater trade value.
LA is either saving Bynum for themselves or for a bid at Dwight Howard, should the Orlando Magic decide to put him on the market.
