It will be huge if they don't have to give up Gordon.

Clipper line up would loook

Clipper line up would loook like

PG - Chris Paul

SG - Eric Gordon

SF - Caron Butler

PF - Blake Griffin

C - Deandre Jordon

Thats a pretty good line and i would even consider them to be better then the Lakers (especially after they gave away lamar odam and who knows how good pau is going to be) ...wow never thought the day would come where the Clippers would be the better LA team (i remember this team was the joke of the league back in the days)

They still have a ways to go

They still have a ways to go before they turn into the team to beat in LA. They have a lot of young talent with lots of potential on their team. I'd say this year they're in the playoffs maybe as a 7 or 8 seed.. Next year they'll be even better when they develop serious chemistry between Blake and Paul.

Honestly i like Caron Butler

Honestly i like Caron Butler coming off the bench in that lineup...He's too much of an Iso guy and volume shooter...He would be ideal coming off the bech to add depth and he will get his touches with whatever the second unit would be

Paul will get DJ easy looks...Gordon,Griffin,and Paul can get the majority of the touches on the first unit. Start Ryan Gomes and he should be good enough for his D and hit the open three to keep the opposing team honest.

From what I've seen

From what I've seen they'd have to give up Eric Gordan, Chris Kaman, Al Farouq-Aminu, & Minnesota's Draft pick. The Clippers are giving up a lot of potential, but they are receiving a top 3 Point Guard in return.

giving up way to much IMO.

giving up way to much IMO. That draft pick is undrafted and will probably be a top 5 pick in an amazing draft. Great deal for NOH.

Happy for NO. A stud in EG

Happy for NO. A stud in EG and 2 top 10 picks. Could be a very exciting team in a few years.

I don't think they're giving up Eric Gordon. They'd be fools to do that.

They are giving Up Gordon and The Sota Pick in 2012

So everybody get over it...The Hornets want the Pick and Gordon or they trade Paul to Golden State for Stephan Curry and David Lee...Ask me where I get my sources from, I dare you...

Dell demps pulls off that Deal, then I'll forgive him for almost gifting The Lakers Paul....This is a far better deal than the 3 team Trade offered earlier//...Gordon/Kaman/Aminu and Minnesota's 2012 pick for Paul...I was right on the money once again...

According to Adrian

According to Adrian Wonjarowski, Gordon isn't included in the deal.

However, according to Chris Broussard, he is.

According to most sites, LAC told NO that's it's either or in terms of Gordon or Minny's 2012 pick.

Gordon is def included in the deal if he goes to the Clippers it's the only reason they would trade him to the Clippers, the Hornets and Stern want Steph Curry or Eric Gordon in return for Paul. The Clippers are going to throw the Wolves 1st round pick in if the Hornets can get Paul to pick up his option for next year ensuring that they have Paul for atleast 2 years.

I think it's silly to give up

I think it's silly to give up Eric Gordon

I love love love Chris Paul, but I think they're giving up too much when you consider injury history. The Minnesota 1st rounder could be quite high this year if the twolves don't figure things out... and this should be a good draft.

if I was the clippers, I would go back in time and undo the stupid Butler deal... then I would try and convince Billups to play.

If you have to give up Gordon, I'd rather wait for the summer, when Deron, etc. might be available.
