With Chris Paul being traded to the Houston Rockets, many fans are divided on their thoughts on the move. Vote on how you think the LA Clippers did!
It’s a sad day in Clipper land. Chris Paul, known as the “Point God”, has officially been traded to the Houston Rockets. Paul, who will go down as one of the greatest LA Clippers of all-time, did actually help the Clippers out. By opting-in to his contract, he was able to be traded, thus giving the Clippers some assets back. Call it his final assist, if you will.
In the trade, the Clippers got a plethora of talent. At the moment, the Clippers will be receiving:
- Patrick Beverly
- Lou Williams
- Sam Dekker
- Montrezl Harrell
- DeAndre Liggins
- Ryan Kelly
- Tim Quarterman
- 2018 First Round Pick (Top-3 Protected)
Liggins, Kelly and Quarterman are all non-guaranteed, meaning they will most likely be waived. The team will also possibly receive a trade exception, but that’s only if the deal is made after July 1st.
