Problem is they'd probably have to give up one of those picks to move him. The only way they get assets for him would probably be to trade for Wall with Washington.

I guess getting picks makes the swap of gaudy contracts worth it, but I better not see Chris Paul ever play in a Thunder uniform. Keep going Presti.

How many picks did they get? Now they will get more when they trade CP3

OKC fans finally get to see Harden and Westbrook play together again.

See dumping Paul for Westbrook is a big win even if the fit doesn't work.

So we assume Paul is mega negative value. How many picks did it take to offset that?

Westbrook has to be some kind of franchise player right? With positive value at least.

I really don't see how the Rockets lost this trade value wise.

Harden must really hate CP3 if he is willing to play with Westbrook.

Houston might become the most unlikable team in the league now. Combining fans who hate Harden flopping and fans who just hate Westbrook. Those are two huge sets of fan bases.

Harden and Westbrook will pretty much be fighting for all the points, rebounds, and assists.

So, anyone still ranking the Rockets above the Jazz now?
