If the New Orleans Hornets trade Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers, will Eric Gordon be headed to the Crescent City? That question is at the center of conflicting reports from Yahoo! Sports on ESPN.
Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski reported early Monday that Gordon was not included in the deal as under review by the NBA, which owns the Hornets. That report matched a Los Angeles Times report on Sunday that did not include Gordon in the package.
ESPN's Chris Broussard followed Woj's report by saying not only that Gordon is included in the deal, but that the Clippers are trying to keep Gordon's name out of reports to prevent a Lamar Odom situation, should the trade fall apart. (The L.A. Lakers had to trade a disgruntled Odom on Saturday after he was shaken up by reports he'd be traded to New Orleans; the Lakers' deal for CP3 was blocked by the league office.)
We should find out whether Gordon is heading to N.O. soon enough.
