Chris Paul Trade: Houston Rockets May Receive Draft Picks, Pau Gasol

There's still a lot of moving parts in the reported trade that will send Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers, and the pieces are continuing to come together. As it stands now, the deal will reportedly send Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers, Pau Gasol to the Houston Rockets, and Kevin Martin, Luis Scola and Lamar Odom to the New Orleans Hornets. Paul is clearly the centerpiece, with Gasol also playing a big role.

But in addition to Gasol, the Rockets are also likely to get draft picks, plural, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

It is likely that the Hornets will receive draft picks as part of a package for Paul, but source says: "Those are still being determined."

We'll be back with more on the reported blockbuster trade as it becomes available.
