Houston may have a problem. The James Harden Chris Paul dynamic duo on the Rockets could be over soon.
That’s if you believe Stephen A.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith dropped this bit of news on his radio show Friday while talking to NBA insider Brian Windhorst.
“In the end, it’s this: With Kevin Durant out, with Klay Thompson out for most of the season, one could argue the Houston Rockets now have a window to get to the NBA Finals,” Smith said. “But you’re also hearing Chris Paul wants out, Chris Paul wouldn’t mind going somewhere else, preferably LA, maybe, we don’t know, with LeBron. We don’t know. But you’re hearing he wants out.”

CP3 is owed $38.5 million in 2019-20, just over $41 million in 2020-21 and just over $44 million in 2021-22.
“I would never say that CP3’s untradeable,” Windhorst said. “He’s tradeable, for sure. But he’s not tradeable in a way that makes their team better.”
Not sure who will take on CP3’s contract.
He’s on the wrong side of 30, and his best days are most certainly behind him.
