    NBA Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets

    CP3 picked up his player option with the Clippers so they could trade him to Houston and get a little something back for him. A 2018 1st round pick, Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, and Lou Williams.

    Thats actually a decent package..with some upside and an 18 pick..considering how much $205mil 5 yrs and how old Paul will be during that Max deal..this will give my LAC a chance to retool and reset... It be nice to get a haul from Boston for Blake next..

    The deal expanded a bit after the rockets made fifty trades for random guys like Deandre Liggins and Tim Quarterman.....Tim Quarterman folks!

    "The Rockets will send Sam Dekker, Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams, DeAndre Liggins, Darrun Hilliard, Montrezl Harrell, Kyle Wiltjer, a top-three protected 2018 first-round pick and $661,000 to the Clippers in exchange for Paul, who said on Twitter that he was going through an "unbelievable amount of emotions right now.""

    CP3 + Harden? I don't know why, but I don't think this duo will work together.

    Re: Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets

    I was going to point out that poor Sweet Lou is yet again stuck on a shitty LA team, but knowing how feeder NBA teams operate these days, I expect the Clippers will either dump his salary in a trade or a buy out. Same with Pat Beverley. Especially with the Daddy's Boy stories about Doc and Austin resurfacing, everyone's going to want out of the team.

    CP3 was oft-injured when he was with the Clippers, so it makes sense that the main guy the Clippers got back in the trade for CP3 is now out for the season.

    im never wrong, just temporarily incorrect!

    nah, houston is incredible. i still feel like the season is a waste if they dont beat gstate in the west finals and then lebron in the finals... but i cant deny that cp3 and harden, with all those shooters, is working amazingly.

    I saw some ridiculous stat that with Harden, CP3, and Capella on the court together the Rockets are 35-2.

    Who knew the Clippers would still be fighting for a playoff spot with no CP3, no Patrick Beverley, no Blake Griffin, and Galinari sidelined again?
