According to ESPN, an anonymous source has revealed that the Clippers will not part ways with DeAndre Jordan or Eric Gordon in attempts to bring Chris Paul to Los Angeles. However, I believe the Magic could easily swing a deal with the Clippers to include both of these players.
Not only is Howard younger than CP3, but he also has a far better track record when it comes to health. Plus, in a league filled with many sub-par starting centers, Howard creates a matchup nightmare each and every night for Clipper opponents.
For Orlando, they receive two young talented players who are just starting to blossom in the league. Eric Gordon averaged an astounding 22.3 points per game for a rebuilding Los Angeles team last season. As for Jordan, he has proved to be a more than capable starter who has tons of potential.

Of course it's an anonymous rumor because it probably came from someone that works for Bleecher Report. But if we can make this trade and then turn around and give New Orleans Bledsoe, Aminu, and the Minny pick for CP3, we'd have the following starting squad:
PG: Chris Paul
SG: Vince Carter (Yeah, we signed him too)
SF: Caron Butler
PF: Blake Griffin
C: Dwight Howard
Would Howard and CP3 seriously walk away from this just because it's the Clippers?
