The NBA will approve a trade of New Orleans Hornets guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. The Hornets will receive a first-round pick, Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman and Al-Farouq Aminu. The Clippers will also receive two future second-round picks in the deal.
It was reported yesterday that a Paul-to-Clippers trade was still alive. Last week, the Hornets agreed to trade Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers in a three-team deal with the Houston Rockets, but the league did not allow the trade.
