Chris Paul Trade Rumors: CP3 Could Be With The Clippers By Tuesday, According To Report

The long, strange saga of 2011 NBA free agency seems as if it has always involved Chris Paul in one form or another. On Monday, just hours after a deal between the New Orleans Hornets and the Los Angeles Clippers had been announced as dead, news has come out that the same teams have been communicating about the trade with renewed vigor.

Marc Stein of ESPN tweeted the following on Monday evening:

Just filed w/@Chris_Broussard: Sources close to talks tell ESPN there is renewed momentum to seal @CP3 trade to Clippers as soon as Tueday

After trade talks between the two camps had broken down earlier on Monday, the Clippers claimed Chauncey Billups off of an amnesty waiver from the New York Knicks and matched an offer sheet that the Golden State Warriors had put in on center DeAndre Jordan.

If the Paul rumors turn out to be true and if the Clippers get their wish of holding on to Eric Gordon in the deal, they would have a fairly stacked team anchored by superstar Blake Griffin.
