Chris Paul Trade Rumors: Clippers Willing To Deal Eric Gordon, DeAndre Jordan

There are a lot of teams going after Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets. The best point guard in the NBA is not likely to re-sign in the Big Easy in the 2012 offseason, which means a lot of teams are trying to make a deal with New Orleans before the season arrives.

Many teams have expressed interest in Paul, like the Los Angeles Lakers, the Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics. But the Los Angeles Clippers might be the team with the most to offer.

Eric Gordon and DeAndre Jordan are two young stars who could definitely smoothen the transition from the CP3 era. Both are young talents that could provide instant scoring, rebounding, steals, and other various assets.   Ken Berger of CBS Sports reports that both would be involved in a deal for Paul.

The Hornets began to seriously engage in trade discussions for superstar Chris Paul Tuesday, with the Celtics, Clippers, Warriors and Mavericks among the most serious suitors, sources told CBSSports.com.

The Clippers' opening salvo was an offer that included Eric Gordon and restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan, with L.A. hoping that the prospect of playing with electrifying forward Blake Griffin and the big stage of Los Angeles would be enticing enough to Paul that he would eventually commit to the team long term.

Paul is also very interested in playing in Los Angeles because of the prospect of playing with Blake Griffin. It would be a really tantalizing combination that would make the Clippers one of the instant draws in the NBA.
