Clippers Trade All-Star Guard Chris Paul To Rockets

The NBA Offseason has already started off with a bang, first the Bulls trade Jimmy Butler to the Timberwolves officially letting people know that they’re going into a full blown rebuild. Then we had the whole D’Angelo Russell trade where he got sent to Brooklyn for Brook Lopez.

Now we have another big trade, the LA Clippers are sending Chris Paul to Houston in exchange for Lou Williams and Patrick Beverly. This isn’t a god awful trade for either team but the Rockets might get the short stick with CP3 and Harden being ballhogs, they can probably find a way to make it work but it’ll take a while for them to get into a rhythm and build chemistry. 

Regardless this makes the rockets a more watchable team even though they wont make it further than the 2nd round in the playoffs. For now the clippers can take an L for trading an all star.
