In an update to the reported trade listed above, Marc Stein of ESPN.com has tweeted that the deal will not go through tomorrow as earlier reported and Chris Paul is going to show up at Hornets camp tomorrow.  The cause of the deal not going through is unclear at this moment.  Word has it that the NBA (Hornets Owner) does not want the team to trade Paul.
