Report: Chris Paul Wants Out Of New Orleans; Lakers On His Short List

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that Chris Paul is seeking a move out of New Orleans.

“He wants out,” said the person, who has been briefed on Paul’s strategy but spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss it publicly. “He wants to play with another superstar. He wants to follow LeBron’s model of teaming up with other great players.”

Berger also writes that the Los Angeles Lakers are one of three teams on Paul’s desired destination list.

Paul’s list of preferred destinations consists of the Knicks, Magic and Lakers, and members of his inner circle already have sent word to the Hornets of his desire to be traded to one of those teams, sources say.
