It appears the Oklahoma City Thunder may not be done wheeling and dealing after sending Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets on Thursday. While the team added veteran guard Chris Paul in the Westbrook deal, along with multiple draft picks, his future in Oklahoma City remains up in the air.
As ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported, the Rockets were hoping to find a third team for Paul, and the Miami Heat remain an option for CP3.
This comes shortly after the Thunder received Paul, two first-round picks and two pick swaps from the Rockets in exchange for Westbrook. Although Paul’s outlook is in question, there may also be the potential for a buyout if Oklahoma City can’t find a new home. But many things remain up in the air, and we’re going to take a look at a few potential trade options for the 34-year-old guard if he’s dealt again.
Chris Paul Trade: Heat, Pistons Among Top Fits
As Wojnarowski points out above, the Heat are still in the mix to add another playmaker, and Paul could be a good fit. His contract, which features three years and $124 million may be an issue for a number of teams, but Miami appears locked in on adding another big name next to Jimmy Butler.
