Eric Gordon Reportedly Heading To Hornets As Part Of Chris Paul Trade

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 Gordonaccording 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.

Gordon played one season of college basketball at Indiana and finished his freshman season leading the Big Ten in scoring and tied for 19th in the nation at 21.5 points per game. Gordon entered the 2008 NBA Draft and was selected seventh overall by the Clippers.

Gordon has played progressively less games in each of his three seasons with the Clippers, going from 78 to 56, mostly due to injury. That hasn't prevented him from scoring in droves, averaging 22.3 points per game last season. He was on the NBA All-Rookie Second Team and was part of the 2010 FIBA World Championship gold medal team.
