I don't. Just glad he and his 120 million over 3 years contract are gone. Guy has nothing left. Daryl Morey got over on OKC again.

I donít think OKC cares about Paul or his contract ó just needed him to match money. The picks is what they wanted.

Source, to The Athletic:

Chris Paul's agent, Leon Rose, will talk to OKC GM Sam Presti in the coming days to determine what's next. If CP wants to go to Miami to join Jimmy Butler, it's clear there's a deal to be done there. The Thunder would engage and have interest.

I don't think Paul is really that good anymore. He hasn't looked very good the last couple years.

This has disaster written all over it, two ball dominant guards on the court together, but only one of them can shoot, good luck with that, glad he ended up in Houston and not Miami

I can't imagine CP ever playing a game for the Thunder, first off why would they take on his huge contract, and why would they want him on a rebuilding team, I would be shocked if CP starts the season in OKC

Makes sense, Miami would send them Dragic, who's in the last year of his contract, so his money would come off the book's at season's end, plus OKC would probably have to send a first round pick to Miami for taking CP's contract, a crazy offseason gets even crazier

Yeah, he's clearly reaching the end of his career, but in the right situation I think he still has a couple good years left, of course he's not the player he was, but I think he can still be an effective player

Stephen A

"Westbrook is quicker, faster, stronger, bigger, younger, healthier and better than Chris Paul. Harden has the outside shot that Westbrook has lacked the last 2 years and Westbrook can still beat anyone off the dribble and get to the hoop. Harden and Paul couldn't stand each other and this was the only place Westbrook wanted to go, to be with his buddy Harden. He knows it is James team and he will have no problem with that. This move puts Houston back in contention again in the West"

I agree!!!

I think this could be a really exciting season. We have moved on from the super teams or big 3 to the dynamic duo's. It should be fun to watch. I know a couple guys are injured but still.

Brooklyn - Durant/Kyrie
Miami - Butler/Paul <--- Assumption
Philly - Embiid/Simmons
Houston - Harden/Westbrook
LAC - Kawhi/George
LAL - Lebron/Davis
Dallas - Doncic/Porzingis They could be fun too!

And then you have some other teams that may not have the biggest names in the league but they are loaded with talent and depth ...

Utah & Denver in the West, and i still think GS will be pretty good when Curry, Thompson, Green and Russell are all healthy. In the East i think Toronto, Milwaukee and Boston have deep rosters.

Maybe but i have no interest in paying a 34 year old Paul, a guy who has not played more than 61 games in any of the last 3 seasons, 124 million over the next 3 years. No thanks.

2019/20 $38,506,482
2020/21 $41,358,814
2021/22 $44,211,146
