Chris Paul Trade Reportedly A Three-Team Deal Involving Houston Rockets

And here come the Houston Rockets! After reports on Thursday morning indicated the Rockets may be the third team in a potential trade package that would send Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers, it appeared the Hornets and Lakers were prepared to go it alone. But now, the Rockets are reportedly back in the "done" deal that will send Paul to Los Angeles for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the trade package sends players every which way and is as follows.

Hornets working to finalize details on 3-team deal to send Chris Paul to Lakers, Gasol to Rockets and Odom, KMart, Scola to NO, sources say.

So, the centerpieces of the deal appear to be Paul and Gasol, who are headed to the Lakers and Rockets, respectively. New Orleans will, essentially, get back Odom, Kevin Marin and Luis Scola in return, cashing in on assets with both Houston and Los Angeles.
