The Lakers are known to want to get younger after their aging core fell short in last year's playoffs, and they are reportedly willing to revamp almost their entire roster. The Lakers are willing to part with anyone except Kobe Bryant to pull off two trades, one for Magic center Dwight Howard and one for Hornets point guard Chris Paul, ESPN's Chris Broussard reports.

From the NY Daily News: “Hornets All-Star point guard Chris Paul may be using his clout to get traded to the Big Apple, but maybe Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni and the franchise’s front office should consider...
Rajon Rondo for Chris Paul? It's a deal the Celtics reportedly would love to make. But there would be big Boston risks, writes Zach Lowe, and they go beyond Paul's looming free agency.
L.A. would have to give up Andrew Bynum and probably Lamar Odom or Pau Gasol, but it's what the Lakers need to give them a jolt.The Orlando Magic made its most desperate attempt to court Dwight Howard the other day in a move understood by starry-eyed lovers everywhere.
The Orlando Magic formally announced several key changes at the top of their hierarchy Wednesday morning, and team officials pledged, again, that they will do everything they can to keep Dwight Howard for the long-term.
