Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that neither the Lakers nor the Hornets will be pursuing a direct trade to obtain Chris Paul. Sources are saying that the Hornets would be able to obtain the pieces they are looking for from either team individually.The revised trade proposal would have stocked New Orleans with younger players and draft picks to prepare for the future of the team.
It's not currently clear why the Lakers decided to pull out of the trade, but their withdrawal is key to the entire deal falling apart.
