Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 9, 2020 1:41 am

The Milwaukee Bucks are expected to explore a trade for Chris Paul, according to rival teams that spoke with Marc Stein of the New York Times.


The Oklahoma City Thunder are expected to eventually trade Paul and pivot to a rebuild.


The Milwaukee Bucks were eliminated from the playoffs in Game 5 on Tuesday by the Miami Heat.

Listen every year we talk about how Chris Paul is going to fall off. Listen it hasn't happened yet the guy will fight through adversity no matter the odds. Imo the Rockets were way better with Paul than Westbrook. The thunder were better with Cp3 than they were with Westbrook and George. The pelicans were better with Paul they Anthony Davis. Clearly a hall of Famer. Hate to say it but I'll be the first, I'm not a big believer in this move. Love you to death Cp3, but if the bucks make the move for you the rest of the roster would be so limited it would take a stellar draft and steal of a couple free agents. Just don't believe in the depth they would posses with Paul's 40m contract.

I don’t see how the match Paul’s salary or even come close. Paul makes 40 million. You aren’t trading Middleton for him for sure. Hill and Bledsoe combined make 26 million. You’d have to throw in Ersan who makes 7 too. Why would the Thunder want that package? For two late 1st? What’s the point of that.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

No team who wants CP3 has any bad contracts to trade to OKC. So, this trade ain't gonna happen until March 2021.

Also OKC wouldn't want Middletons long contract anyway..

Bledsoe, Hill, Ilyasova and Robin Lopez (picks up his PO) would do it for the salaries. OKC can flip Bledsoe for rebuilding parts.

Hill is getting old. Ilyasova and RoLo don't play in meaningful games so the talent swap would be Bledsoe for Paul.

Why not the lakers and trade Danny Green, KCP, and Quinn Cook this offseason. The Lakers have cap space then OKC shaves off at least 15 million immediately.

Not that hard if you get a 3rd team involved + draft picks to sweeten the deal.

Why the hell would the Knicks make that trade. That’s insane. And it says Knicks will decreased their wins by about 15 games with that trade. So they win about 6 games next year with this lineup :lol:

Instead of Chris Paul, they should look into getting Bradley Beal.

First of all, the Knicks do insane trades all the time: :D But seriously, the Knicks are getting 2 all-defense team players and the best 3P% shooter in the league. That's an instant rotation around RJ Barrett. At least a playoff contender in the East, which should be good enough for the Knicks.

If you want to sweeten it for the Knicks, then you keep Robinson and the Knicks also get DDV.
