New Orleans Hornets officials say they've excused Chris Paul from a normally mandatory preseason media event.
Hornets spokesman Dennis Rogers says the decision to keep the star guard away from Wednesday's event at the New Orleans Arena was mutual.

Chris Paul is headed to Los Angeles for real this time _ to the Clippers, not the Lakers.
The Clippers have agreed to pick up the All-Star point guard from New Orleans in a blockbuster deal that includes sending Eric Gordon to the Hornets.
The Clippers have acquired 26-year old point guard Chris Paul and two future 2nd round picks from the Hornets for 22-year old shooting guard Eric Gordon, 29-year old center Chris Kaman, 21-year old small forward Al-Farouq Aminu and the Timberwolves’ first round pick in 2012.

The Clippers will send guard Eric Gordon, forward Al-Farouq Aminu, center Chris Kaman and a first-round draft choice to the Hornets; the Clippers may be receiving 2 second round draft...
Lamar Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian have moved on to Dallas. The Lakers will miss everything Lamar brought to the team on and off the court. And I personally will miss Khloe sitting courtside. Her purse and shoe game was crazy! And so is her enthusiasm for Lam Lam. He’s one of those players I’ll cheer for no matter what team he’s on.
And of course I’ll be tuned in to the...
