NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The three players the Hornets acquired by trading Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers are in New Orleans, and all three say they’re looking forward to a new start.

Guard Eric Gordon, center Chris Kaman and forward Al-Farouq Aminu were presented with their new Hornets jerseys before a scrimmage on Saturday.

Gordon says he sees his move to New Orleans “as a good opportunity” and looks forward to great things early on.

The 7-foot Kaman says he has “a lot to go out there and prove” after missing most of last season with a left ankle injury.

Aminu says he’s also “happy how things turned out.”

Coach Monty Williams says he does not feel like he’s starting over with the new players, but “moving in the right direction.”

  1. well they are gonna get more playing time than they would of had they stayed in los angeles except for gordon. And gordon now becomes the best player and captain of the team in new orleans. Kaman has to play his best since he is in his contract year, and if he can stay healthy, he might be able to get moved to a contender before the trade deadline. Aminu for sure will get 30+ minutesa night. In LA behind butler, he would be more of a 15 minute a night guy at the most. So he has a chance to show whether or not he has improved this offseason. And between the three of them they know how to play together so with okafor, and ariza that’s not bad for starting five, I guess that makes gordon their point guard with ariza, aminu, okafor, and kaman.
