Officially opened for business on Friday, with the start of both Free Agency & Training Camp
. We've already seen Chris Paul
head to the Lakers in a 3 team deal
, only to be sent back to New Orleans.
The fallout from that particular deal now had CP3
headed BACK to L.A
., but in a different uniform. The current deal being discussed involves The Clippers sending Chris Kaman, Eric Bledsoe, Al-Faroq Aminu & Two Future 1st Round Picks to New Orleans for CP3
, and my guess
, Trevor Ariza or Marco Bellinelli.
This would leave the Clippers
with a projected lineup of, PG Chris Paul, SG Eric Gordon, SF Caron Butler (newly signed), PF Blake Griffin, C DeAndre Jordan
. That lineup is Crazy!
Further fallout from the CP3
fiasco now has the L.A. Lakers
focusing on acquiring Dwight Howard
, who formally requested a trade to the New Jersey Nets. The Nets
have offered Brook Lopez & 2 First Round Picks for Howard
. The Magic have asked the Lakers for both Andrew Bynum & Pau Gasol
, which the Lakers have refused.
