Berger: Chris Paul Lists Orlando Magic Among Desired Trade Destinations

Ken Berger of CBSSports reports that Chris Paul, a three-time All-Star, Olympic gold-medalist, and the NBA's active leader in assists per game, has asked the New Orleans Hornets to trade him, and has included the Orlando Magic on his list of preferred destinations, along with the New York Knicks and L.A. Lakers. From Berger:

Paul's inclusion of the Magic on his list dovetails with CBSSports.com's report June 30 that star center Dwight Howard has asked Orlando management to pursue a trade for Paul -- although Magic GM Otis Smith said by phone Wednesday that he is unaware of such a plan.

As Berger mentions, this report isn't the first item linking Paul and the Magic. Indeed, earlier this summer Sam Amick and Tim Povtak of NBA FanHouse filed separate reports regarding the Magic's interest in Paul, with Povtak saying the Magic had offered their starting backcourt of Jameer Nelson and Vince Carter for a package featuring Paul.
