Deal in the Clippers Lisa Dillman Los Angeles Times Mad Men, part II? Not exactly. Chris Paul can't pack up one weekend, join forces with a couple of other superheroes and leave the Hornets with a bunch of empty desks, full wastebaskets and a few stray basketballs. It only happens on TV with the fictional advertising execs from Sterling Cooper. Oh, yes, and LeBron too. What should the Hornets do, besides spin the story? It's easy. Nothing, for the moment.

Having survived the hype for the free agent Class of 2010, hopefully by changing channels … Who's up for the hype for the Class of 2011? If you aren't, you had better change channels again or turn the page, because it's here, along with that for the '12 class. The NBA preseason is usually a down time for trades, but this fall is more like the summer of 2011, moved up. The Carmelo Anthony watch — which may stand down for a few days, weeks or months after Denver almost traded him to New Jersey — is only the start.

Coach: Dave Leitao, first season at school, sixth overall (80-69) 2004-05 record: 14-15, 4-12 (tied for 10th in ACC) Returning starters: Sophomore G Sean Singletary, junior G T.J. Bannister, junior G J.R. Reynolds Sun prediction: Losing record Why it will happen: Leitao inherited a team that hasn't had a winning record in the ACC in the past four seasons and hasn't been to the NCAA tournament since 2001. Billy Campbell, the team's lone senior, didn't start any games last year. It's a mystery who is going to generate the frontcourt offense, as no returning forward or center scored more than 4.2 points per game last season.

WASHINGTON - - Chris Paul scored eight of his 26 points in the final three minutes Sunday to lead the New Orleans Hornets to their sixth straight win. Antawn Jamison tied his season-high with 32 points, and Foye had 23 starting in place of the suspended Gilbert Arenas to set a season-high for the second straight game as the Wizards wasted a 58 percent shooting game by committing 19 turnovers. The last-place Wizards, expected to struggle with Arenas suspended indefinitely by the NBA during a guns-related investigation, nearly pulled off an upset for the second straight game.

Chris Paul has requested to be traded and the Hornets have scheduled a meeting with the star guard on Monday, according to a person familiar with the situation. Paul will sit down with new head coach Monty Williams , new general manager Dell Demps and team President Hugh Weber in New Orleans, the person told the Associated Press on Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not made plans to meet with Paul public, and because Paul has not publicly demanded a trade.

C.J. Paul used to tease his little brother, laughing when this pipsqueak said he was going to play someday for their beloved North Carolina Tar Heels. One day, after Chris Paul's sophomore year at West Forsyth High School outside Winston-Salem, the teasing stopped. "He worked in the summertime on a Tim Hardaway move where he goes between his legs real fast and he crosses over," recalled C.J. Paul, who is two years older and starts at point guard for the University of South Carolina-Spartanburg, a Division II school.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Most basketball players have to adjust to being complementary players when they get to college. Justin Gray wasn't one of them, as the Wake Forest senior guard is in a lead role for the first time since he was a sophomore in high school. Growing up in Charlotte, N.C., Gray spent three seasons on the same Amateur Athletic Union team with Rashad McCants. At Oak Hill, the hoops finishing school in rural Virginia, he fed Carmelo Anthony. Gray's freshman season at Wake revolved around Josh Howard, and the previous two were spent as Chris Paul's sidekick.

RALEIGH, N.C. - Chris Paul and Luis Flores took different roads to yesterday's second-round NCAA tournament game at RBC Center, but Wake Forest's freshman point guard and his senior counterpart from Manhattan each wanted to wind up in the same destination.
