We have a new trade to announce, days away from the start of NBA Free Agency this off-season. And, as expected, Adrian Wojnarowski just broke the news:
Sources: After Paul informed Clippers he'd sign w/ HOU in FA, teams agreed to deal sending Beverley, Decker, Williams and 2018 FRP for Paul. https://t.co/9Lk9FPEPbu— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) June 28, 2017
So the Rockets get Chris Paul, a pretty good point guard if you want to occasionally make the playoffs. And they are sending Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams, Sam Dekker, and a 1st rounder in 2018 to Flop City. This means the Utah Jazz are out of the running for the services of Patrick Beverley. Chris Paul joins James Harden in Houston, giving the Rockets a backcourt duo to compete with the Warriors Championship tandem of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
Does this mean a reset/rebuild for the L.A. Clippers? [Ed. Does this mean some Clippers would be available to be stolen from them for picks?]
Tell us what you think of this trade, and the aftershocks of it!
