Hornets, Clippers Agree on Chris Paul Trade
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- NBA Commissioner David Stern says his only consideration during trade talks concerning Chris Paul was getting the best deal for the New Orleans Hornets.

Stern says he believes he's succeeded with Wednesday night's deal in which the Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers for guard Eric Gordon, forward Al-Farouq Aminu, center Chris Kaman and a first-round draft choice.

The deal required Stern's approval because the Hornets are owned by the league. The commissioner says he did not believe a deal he rejected involving the Lakers last week was as good for the Hornets, which the league intends to sell to new owners who'll keep the team in Louisiana.

Stern says ''the future of the Hornets in New Orleans is brighter than it's ever been.''
