  • Rockets' Chris Paul: Dealt to Rockets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Paul, after informing the Clippers he would sign with the Rockets in free agency, opted-in on his contract and was subsequently dealt to Houston in exchange for Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Lou Williams and a 2018 (top three protected) first round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports. After another disappointing season in Los Angeles teamed up with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, Paul seemingly decided that the grass was greener on the other side. Originally, Paul had decided to opt out of his contract, but then informed the Clippers of his intentions to sign with the Rockets, eventually leading him to opt in, so the Clippers could deal him and get assets in return. From a fantasy perspective, this trade could have significant implications for both Paul and Harden, who are both ball-dominant guards in every sense of the word. That said, Paul shot a career-best 41.1 percent from beyond the arc last season, making it a possibility that he could occasionally do some catch-and-shoot action while Harden shuffles the defense. On the other side of the equation, Harden played mostly shooting guard and small forward for the majority of his career until coach Mike D'Antoni decided to officially convert him to a point guard this past season, so playing off-ball isn't foreign to him. It seems likely, however, that one or both of them will suffer in the assist department but could compensate with increased scoring efficiency. Whatever the case may be, Houston now boasts one of the most, if not the most, skilled backcourts in the NBA.

  • Chris Paul: Officially becomes free agent
    By RotoWire Staff

    Paul officially exercised his early termination option to become a free agent Saturday, Paul Garcia of The Sports Daily reports. As anticipated, Paul will pass on his final year with the Clippers in order to test the free-agent waters, which opens July 1st. His former team could offer him the heftiest contract -- which could be worth upwards of $205 million on a five-year deal -- but any other team could only offer him a maximum of $152 million over four years, according to ESPN.

  • Clippers' Chris Paul: Intends to opt out of contract
    By RotoWire Staff

    Paul intends to opt out of his contract on June 29th, which would make him an unrestricted free agent, ESPN reports. Paul will forgo the final year of his current deal with the Clippers, which is worth over $24 million, to hit the open market when free agency starts July 1st. While Paul is waiting for the final day possible to officially declare his intention, star forward Blake Griffin opted out of his final year on Friday. As a result, Los Angeles' two best players will be free to field offers from around this league next month, leaving the franchise with a humungous offseason ahead. At 32 years old, Paul averaged 18.1 points, 9.2 assists, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 2.0 three-pointers while shooting 41.1 percent from deep in 61 appearances this season.

  • Paul recorded 29 points (10-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), eight assists, three rebounds and two steals across 38 minutes Friday in a 98-93 win over the Jazz in Game 6 of the series. With Blake Griffin missing the last three games of the series with a season-ending toe injury, Paul has took it upon himself to carry the Clippers offense on his shoulders. He was once again masterful in Game 6 as both a scorer and distributor, providing at least 27 points for the third straight game and bumping his assist-to-turnover ratio up to 29:8 during that span. Paul should see another sky-high usage rate in Sunday's Game 7 as the Clippers aim to advance to the second round.

  • Paul generated 28 points (10-19 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and one steal across 38 minutes Tuesday in a 96-92 loss to the Jazz in Game 5 of the series. Paul's hot shooting from three-point range in the fourth quarter nearly allowed the Clippers to score a comeback victory, but the Jazz converted on some key plays down the stretch to take a 3-2 series lead. The point guard failed to record a double-double for the first time all series, but he's still averaging 27.0 points (on 53.1% shooting), 10.4 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 2.2 three-pointers and 2.0 steals in 36.4 minutes per game over the five contests, all of which match or surpass his regular-season numbers.
