Chris Paul was dealt to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Russell Westbrook last week in a trade that almost caused the internet to explode, but it still isn't clear where Paul will be on opening night next season. In the past, Lakers veteran Rajon Rondo and former Laker sensation Brandon Ingram have had an ugly fight with Paul. The Heat quickly emerged as a potential trade partner, but they don't seem all that eager to add the nine-time All-Star.
Since news broke that the Thunder may be looking to move Chris Paul, some have connected the point guard to the Lakers given his close friendship with LeBron James. We'll start finding out if they're right come October. Taking on Paul's contract also prohibits the Lakers from being active in free agency over the next three offseasons.
Newsday, DRC: Ebola outbreak reaches Goma
Almost 2,500 people have been infected and more than 1,600 killed in the second biggest outbreak on record. Michael Ryan, who is directing the agency's Ebola response, said the meeting would be held this week.
It marked the end of a chapter for Oklahoma City basketball, an 11-year era of remarkable success that lacked only an NBA title. As expensive as the deal is, it's a year shorter than Westbrook's. I think middle-tier players aren't getting that mid level money anymore.
After all, Paul is still thought to have no winning ways with the Thunder and is expected to sign with a different team this offseason. Oklahoma City's abrupt shift toward rebuilding from contending was sparked by Paul George earlier this month requesting a trade to the LA Clippers to play with Kawhi Leonard. "Either Paul is on the roster or traded- hard to believe a buyout would even be part of the discussion", Marks tweeted.
