WELP! Khlo-Money, pack up your bags.....you're headed to the "boot" babaaaay!
In shocking and surprising news in the NBA, it has been announced that Lakers superstar (and hubby to Khloe Kardashian) will be traded to the New Orleans Hornets, in return for point guard Chris Paul - who is now a Los Angeles Laker!
The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to a trade in which they will obtain New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom, sources tell ESPN.com's Marc Stein. The Houston Rockets are the third team in the trade and will obtain Gasol from the Hornets in return for Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, Goran Dragic, and a 2012 first-round pick that Houston received from the New York Knicks, sources said. In Paul, the Lakers will obtain an All-Star and gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic Team member who has averaged 37.1 minutes, 18.7 points and 9.9 assists a game in his six NBA seasons. Paul can opt out of his current contract with New Orleans after this season, and the Hornets have been fielding trade offers in an effort to acquire new players for the star guard rather than letting him walk in free agency. Paul averaged 15.8 points and 9.8 assists last season. (MORE)This is the game of professional sports, Dancers!
