Chris Paul Traded to the Houston Rockets

Chris Paul. Arguably the best, if not best play maker in the league. Paired up with also one of the best, if not best play makers in the league in James Harden. Deadly. Lethal. They are going to destroy teams next year. This trade featured of course, Chris Paul, while the Rockets are giving Patrick Beverly, Sam Dekker, Lou Williams, DeAndre Liggins, Darrun Hilliard, Montrezl Harrell, Kyle Wiltjer, and a 2018 top-3 protected pick for Paul alone. This is the 2nd blockbuster trade in the off season so far. This is what the Rockets are doing to compete with the Warriors, and they will compete. And I think it is going to be a hard-fought series in the playoffs next year (Yes. I’m thinking that they will both play in the Western Conference Finals). This offense is going to be spectacular. Just seeing James Harden and the Rockets take the court last year was amazing. Now imagine them having future Hall of Famer Chris Paul on that team. They are going to have some HIGH scoring games. Not only this but the Rockets will have a proven defender in Chris Paul on the team. This trade was smart for both the Rockets and Clippers.

Well first of all, the Rockets got Chris Paul, who I just talked about. So let me get in depth with the Clippers. The Clippers knew that they had to trade Chris Paul, because reportedly, he told that once being an unrestricted free agent next year, he would sign with the Rockets. So why waste a season winning and getting a lower draft pick with Chris Paul, and letting him go for nothing, rather than start rebuilding and trade Chris Paul for all these young players. They will have a bad season, but it is okay. I talked about this in one of my previous posts using Paul George. Because same goes for the Pacers, too. I definitely think this is a win-win situation. Rockets can compete with the Warriors NOW, while the Clippers get young assets and a pick to start a rebuild.

Now I’ve been thinking about this, but I guess I’ll start making shorter posts like these. I could give you all the information in not a long 800 word post. Oh, and I won’t be posting at all from Saturday to Monday, but hopefully nothing too much happens so I won’t have to recap everything on Tuesday.

That’s it for now. Hope you enjoyed. 🙂 PEACE

  1. This trade is not going to benefit the Rockets as much as you think. The rockets the most out of young players last year. Clint capela and other players showed up big and helped them so idk how well chris Paul will get along with another great passer in harden

    1. Showed up big? Which players, harden carried the team in the playoffs. Lou Williams was a ball hog who chucked up shots. I agree patrick Beverly played good on defense. Chris Paul may not match that, but he is a good defender and made the all nba defensive team. And Chris Paul can make his own points when harden is out. Sam dekker definitely “showed up big” with 6.5 points this season. The “other players” you r talking about like Clint capela are still on the team. The other people the rockets traded like deandre liggins were just signed to then get traded. U do make a good point about how we dont know if they will get along but the rockets still have their solid players on the roster. I also agree that I’m overreacting on the trade but i mean this is CHRIS PAUL. FUTURE HALL OF FAMER. one of the best facilitators he is a beast. And adding that to the already amazing houston rocket offense will be mind boggling
