Chris Paul's stock has fallen to Dwight Howard levels.

Good trade for all!

Except for these two teams.

Pick swaps are useless as OKC expects to bottom out right? So they're fluff so Presti can pretend he got more.

Houston’s picks are likely to remain in the late 20s barring both Westbrook and Harden dropping off by 2024.

Those swaps are likely just so Presti feels nice because OKC will not finish with a better record than Houston anytime soon.

Issues between CP3 and James Harden must’ve pretty damn serious

These 4-5 year consecutive pick trades are shocking to me. This is exactly how the Nets destroyed their franchise for years and now the Lakers, Clippers, and now Rockets have now done it in one offseason

Good move for Houston. It made sense for them. Getting out from CP3 to get Westbrook is a win.

Hell man, maybe OKC can convince CP3 to take a sizable buyout.
