Side note: Everyone is acting like OKC is going to be a wasteland next year. They've got a starting lineup that contains Adams, Gallo, SGA, and Chris Paul. They need frontcourt help, but they've got a lot of guards that can be used for (very) small ball or as trade chips with their approximately one zillion draft picks. That's not so terrible. And if I was a frontcourt guy that wanted to reestablish my NBA career, I'd go for OKC. Any vet min signing at SF and PF (and C) will get plenty of playing time.
Thing is, looks like Presti will dump CP to anyone who will take his contract at a moment's notice. FAs with any other options have to look elsewhere first.
That said, if CP is stuck in OKC with Adams, Gallo and SGA, they could flirt with .500, and if they were in the East, probably even make the playoffs. This Chris Paul fellow still knows a thing or two about the game. If he were on the Sixers, they win the East in a walk.
