CP3 Is Being Traded To The Houston Rockets
NBA fans all over are being emotionally tested this morning with a bunch of news breaking regarding trades for next season. After news broke of Phil Jackson being ousted from his beloved Knicks, headlines quickly turned to (now former) Clippers player Chris Paul:
According to reports, James Harden was a huge reason CP3’s trade to the Houston Rockets was able to come to fruition. Apparently both point guards were determined to play together, and the two teams were able to come to an agreement in order to make this a reality.
Paul agreed to opt in to the final year of his $24.2 million contract, clearing the way for the Clippers to make a trade with the Rockets and bring back assets for Paul, league sources said. Had CP3 opted out of his contract, he could’ve signed a new deal that started at $34 million a year.
