Hornets still looking to trade Paul

WESTWEGO, La. – While Chris Paul darted around a basketball court in a black Hornets practice uniform, the only NBA team for which he has played resumed trade talks for the All-Star guard, opening discussions with anyone who is interested.

“We’re talking about everything. Everything is on the table,” general manager Dell Demps said Friday.

When asked if he was working with Los Angeles or Houston to resurrect the trade that would have sent the 26-year-old Paul to the Lakers but was rejected by the NBA Thursday night, Demps would not say specifically if he was talking to the Lakers.

Although Paul practiced fully and even got in some extra work at the Hornets’ suburban training center, the team did not make him available to speak with reporters.
