Chris Paul

  1. Report: Chris Paul would play for Clippers, but there are hitches

    Dec 11, 2011, 11:52 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is not going to the Lakers, they pulled out of the running for him. He’s not going to get traded to the Knicks, even Paul realizes they don’t have the young assets to make the move (even if some Knicks fans don’t). If he can’t land there, he wouldn’t mind playing along side…

  2. The Lakers and the high price of losing a sure-bet

    Dec 11, 2011, 9:02 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    If you had asked any NBA fan, or expert, or even Lakers official back in June what they’d be doing two weeks before the start of the season, they’d say there’d be some drama. There always is. With Phil Jackson retiring and Jim Buss taking the reins over from his father, there were sure to…

  3. It is now official, Lamar Odom a Maverick

    Dec 11, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    UPDATE 8:25 pm: It is now official, the Lakers have traded Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks for a first round pick (restricted, starting top 20 this year) and a second rounder. Dallas fits him in using the salary exception from the Tyson Chandler trade. The Lakers get their own $8.9 million trade exception to…

  4. Report: Lakers will not trade Bynum and Gasol for Howard

    Dec 11, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    The Lakers are starting to play a little hardball in their negotiations. Or at least threatening to. First they pull out of the Chris Paul trade, surprising the Hornets and Rockets, and now this nugget from the well connected Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register. I’m told the Lakers will not be trading Bynum…

  5. Boston misses mark, David West to sign with Pacers

    Dec 11, 2011, 3:47 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    David West to the Boston Celtics made some sense — not a perfect fit but the best player on the free agent market the Celtics could seem to get. Rajon Rondo was going to love having one of the best pick-and-pop bigs in the game to work with. Instead, Darren Collison is going to love…

  6. Knicks making effort to acquire Jamal Crawford in sign-and-trade

    Dec 11, 2011, 1:23 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Donnie Walsh said in the press conference announcing his departure from the Knicks’ president job that the team’s objective was to build supporting players around Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. He acknowledged the difficulty of that given the salary constraints of having two stars, but also made it clear that it wasn’t about a third…

  7. Rockets, Hornets stunned by Lakers dropping out of CP3 race

    Dec 11, 2011, 11:13 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul

    After weeks of work that had a trade to send Chris Paul to the Lakers — a deal that was consummated once only to have David Stern crush it — the Lakers unexpectedly walked away from the deal Saturday. Why? We’ll take a stab at that in a second. But first, the Lakers move left…

  8. Chris Paul could still land in Los Angeles — with the Clippers

    Dec 11, 2011, 9:59 AM EDT

    chris-paul-looks-confused

    So now what for Chris Paul? Small market owners got their wish — David Stern blew up the three-team deal that would have sent Paul to the Lakers and netted the Hornets a nice haul of players, and all the kings’ horses and all the kings’ men could not put the deal together again. The…

  9. Reports: Lakers pull out of trade for Chris Paul, will trade Lamar Odom to Dallas, Dwight Howard move next?

    Dec 11, 2011, 12:08 AM EDT

    Chris Paul Andrew Bynum

    And the strange, strange saga rolls on. After nearly a week of negotiations and one failed attempt by the Los Angeles Lakers to trade for Chris Paul in a three-way deal with the Houston Rockets which was blocked by the league, ESPN reports that the Lakers “have pulled out” of the Paul trade. The deal…

  12. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  13. Video: Suns owner Robert Sarver talks NBA business

    Dec 10, 2011, 9:03 AM EDT

    Suns Robert Sarver

    Suns owner Robert Sarver went on Darren Rovell’s Sports Biz Game On on CNBC and talked NBA business. He wisely sidestepped the steaming pile of Chris Paul trade fiasco and instead focused on what the shortened schedule (but he didn’t complain too much this time) and revenue sharing will mean for small market owners. Not…

  14. Chris Paul to Lakers deal back from the dead. Maybe. But modified.

    Dec 10, 2011, 1:49 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Quincy Pondexter

    A little more than 24 hours after the iron fist of David Stern crushed the Chris Paul to the Lakers trade because small market owners complained it was not good for the Hornets, we know four things. 1. Chris Paul is going to be traded. Sooner rather than later. 2. The Lakers’ and Hornets’ three-team deal…

    UPDATE (12:59 AM EST): Sam Amick of SI.com to the rescue: Orlando PR man Joel Glass calls to inform that D. Howard’s agent now has permission to speak w/ Lakers, Nets, & Mavs about possible trade. Glass was clear that this permission was from here “going forward,” not previously. The Lakers and Nets make sense…

    Dec 9, 2011, 11:36 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    Well, Boston is going with the “penetrating point guard and shooters” theory. Apparently. The Celtics are on the verge of signing free agent David West, tweets David Aldridge of NBA.com. This would be a three-year deal for about $27 million and likely will be a sign-and-trade where Jermaine O’Neal and others will head back to…

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  18. Report: Lakers, Rockets, Hornets talking reworking Chris Paul trade

    Dec 9, 2011, 4:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul

    This could get interesting. And it could provide David Stern a “face saving” way out of his public relations disaster. The Lakers, Hornets and Rockets are talking again about ways to sweeten the three-team trade vetoed by Stern yesterday, tweeted Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo (who has been on top of this story from the start).…

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    And you thought the Chris Paul situation was messy….

    NBA executives around the league are shocked — never before has the league stepped in to block a trade, even ones that appeared painfully lopsided — but they have used that power now. And the teams involved don’t like it. The Lakers, Hornets and Rockets will appeal the cancellation of the three-team trade that would…

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    It was the big story yesterday — until Chris Paul was traded then untraded — and it will shake up the Eastern Conference. And it is happening — the New York Knicks will sign Tyson Chandler today tweets Howard Beck at the New York Times. The Knicks will use the amnesty clause on Chauncey Billups…

  23. Stern’s trade veto about owners wanting their power back

    Dec 9, 2011, 9:34 AM EDT

    David Stern, Adam Silver

    Why David Stern pulled the plug Thursday on a reasonable (not ideal, but reasonable) three-team trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers is really simple: The NBA owners want their power over star players back. What LeBron James did scared most owners because he had the power — teams had to come…
