The drama continues.
After the NBA world was flipped upside down yesterday by the news of David Stern’s decision to veto the three-team deal that would have brought Chris Paul to the Lakers, sources are now confirming that the deal may not be dead after all.
The Lakers, Hornets and Rockets are talking again this afternoon in hopes of finding a way to complete the deal that involved Chris Paul, Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol.
While it’s hard to say how the deal needs to be re-structured in order for it to pass through the Commissioners desk, it sounds like the willingness is there from all parties involved.
Representatives from the three teams have communicated and understand that they need to sweeten the deal for New Orleans, either through additional players or future draft considerations.
We expect this story will continue to be updated throughout the afternoon and evening. Stay tuned to our Twitter for the most up-to-date information.
