CP3 to Houston

Chris Paul Headed to the Houston Rockets to Join Harden

So things keep happening.

The NBA offseason has been more entertaining than the playoffs, and it just got even more wild.

Just minutes ago, sources have told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, that Chris Paul has opted into his 2017-18 player option in order to be traded to the Houston Rockets. In return, the Rockets will send the Los Angeles Clippers a package of Lou Williams, Sam Dekker, a 2018 first-round pick (protected Nos. 1-3) and gritty defender Patrick Beverley.

The 32-year superstar point guard will now earn $24.2-million for this upcoming season as he is set to form a dynamic backcourt with MVP runner-up James Harden.

Paul had until today to opt out of the final year of his contract and hit the unrestricted free agent market. Had he done that, he could have been eligible to sign a new deal that would pay him $34-million annually. Paul will now be capable of signing a five-year, $205-million maximum contract extension with the Rockets.

According to league sources, Paul and Harden have discussed partnering up, and the Clippers were not ready to lose the face of their franchise for nothing.

‘CP3’ is a nine-time All-Star and will be entering his first year with the Rockets after spending six seasons with the Clippers and six with the New Orleans Pelicans. For his career, the future Hall of Famers has averaged 18.7-points, 9.9-assists, and 2.3-steals per game.

The new face of the Los Angeles Clippers organization is DeAndre Jordan!
