The Los Angeles Clippers are making moves to step out the Lakers shadow.
All-Star and Olympian Chris Paul is leaving the New Orleans Hornets and coming to the Clips.
In a large trade, the Clips will send Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu and a first round pick to New Orleans.
The Hornets will send Paul and two second picks to L.A.
The deal after weeks of speculation and uncertainty from the NBA owned Hornets.
CP3 thought he was going to be a Laker, but the NBA blocked the trade.
Now, the Clippers have taken one aways from the Lakers.
Does Chris Paul make the Clippers instant contenders?
