The New Orleans Hornets have agreed in principle to trade All-NBA point guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers for a package including stud shooting guard Eric Gordon, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. The package will also send veteran center Chris Kaman, young forward Al-Farouq Aminu and the unprotected 2012 first-round pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Hornets.
A member of the 2008 McDonald's All-American Team and a star at Wake Forest, Aminu was selected by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2010 NBA Draft with the 8th overall pick. He averaged 5.6 points and 3.3 rebounds in 81 games played last season, 14 of which he was a starter.
In New Orleans, he should play behind Trevor Ariza at small forward, provided that Ariza doesn't immediately go on the trade block.
