The Hornets, Lakers and Rockets have resumed talks in search of a way to complete their three-way trade for Chris Paul, according to sources.

"All three teams are engaged," one source says. "Not sure if it will work."

On Thursday, the Lakers agreed to acquire Paul in exchange for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom. Houston would acquire for Gasol while sending Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Goran Dragic and a first round pick. The Hornets would receive Odom, along with Martin, Scola, Dragic and the first round pick.

Sources tell ESPN that the NBA gave the Hornets permission to resume talks on Friday.
