Chris Paul Trade Could Send Eric Gordon From Clippers To Hornets, According To Report

Late Sunday, it appeared that a proposed trade to send All-Star point guard Chris Paul from the league-owned New Orleans Hornets to the Los Angeles Clippers would not result in stud shooting guard Eric Gordon being sent back to the Crescent City. But according to an ESPN report Monday, Gordon may have replaced Eric Bledsoe in the deal. The Hornets would also receive Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu and the Minnesota Timberwolves' unprotected 2012 first-round pick, conveyed to the Clips back in 2005.

Gordon and the pick would make this a great package for the Hornets, though the 10,000 New Orleans season ticket holders -- a point of pride for the league -- may have to wait for on-court success. Gordon is a dynamic talent who averaged 22 points per game last season. He has one year left on his rookie deal, and is actually eligible to sign an early Bird extension this offseason.
