Lakers, Hornets, Rockets Discussing Trade for Chris Paul

The rumors continue to swirl around Chris Paul and the New Orleans Hornets. The most recent update claims that the Lakers are currently having conversations with the Hornets and the Houston Rockets in an attempt to pull off a three team trade that would bring Paul to Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is looking to build a package around power forward Pau Gasol. This would allow them to keep center Andrew Bynum to potentially trade to the Orlando Magic for Dwight Howard.

Involving three teams in a trade always makes things a bit trickier, but it is certainly possible.
