Free agency soon

NBA: Utah Jazz at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Huge news with free agency days away: Chris Paul is going to the Rockets.

the Clippers receive Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams, Sam Dekker, and a top-three protected 2018 first-round pick

Apparently Paul said he was going to opt-out and join Houston before this move was negotiated. Instead he’ll now opt-in for another year of his deal. And be eligible for a huge contract next offseason.

Meanwhile, Paxson looks really smart for this ‘path’. Whereas before we’d wonder ‘where at the Bulls’ when any big-time NBA moves are made, we don’t even really get to feel like the Chicago franchise is part of the league anymore.

Anyway, use this thread to talk about real NBA teams doing moves.
