The NBA had another major trade on Thursday, with the Oklahoma City Thunder sending Russell Westbrook to the Houston Rockets, in a trade that involves Chris Paul and a handful of draft picks.

As Westbrook reunites with James Harden in Houston, the Thunder will get Paul plus two first round draft picks in 2024 and 2026 and two pick swaps in 2021 and 2025. However there are now reports that OKC plans to move CP3:

Paul, who was drafted by New Orleans in 2005, spent 6 seasons with the Hornets and then 6 with the Clippers, before spending his last two with the Houston Rockets. The 9-time NBA All-Star has averaged 18.5 points, 9.7 assists and 4.5 rebounds in his 14-year professional career.
