According to a source with knowledge of his plan, Chris Paul has requested that the Hornets trade him to the Knicks, Magic or Lakers before the season begins.
“He wants out,” the source told Ken Berger of CBS Sports. “He wants to play with another superstar. He wants to follow LeBron’s model of teaming up with other great players.”
NBA sources say that members of Paul’s camp recently told them, “He’s not going to start the season in New Orleans.”
The Hornets will try to persuade Paul to remain based on the team’s new direction.
