Wasn’t he a finals MVP too?  I guess they should have retired his number.

I just saw a report where the Warriors will retire Iggy's number too lol

On a broadcast it was speculated that the Thunder will probably buy out Chris Paul. OKC will be in a major rebuild and they know that Westbrook would not want to be part of that process.

They are rebuilding at this point. Westbrook alone does them no good, so they wanted the picks. Not sure what will happen with CP3. It has to suck to be a okc fan. At one point you were in the finals and had Durant, Harden, and Westbrook, 3 of the best players and biggest stars in the league. Then one by one they are all gone.

Well said. It also wouldn't surprise me if they flip Paul for more assets at this point.  

 

Presti has played a couple of bad hands just about as well as anyone could expect.  Impressive.  The NBA is so fun.

He didn’t really earn it, it was just that Curry wasn’t all that impressive, so the cynics and haters had to find someone else.

 

Cornbread Maxwell was another cynical pick by the jaded media.

the picks are in 24 and 26...thats a hell of a long rebuild LOL. And @JohnC, Paul is owed like another $80M i believe..cant believe a team like OKC can eat that. 

 

Just getting up, will flutter around the interwebs a bit to see what I am missing

 

(edit)

 

owed $124M for next 3 seasons..not bad work if ya can find it eh?

 

has to be flipped, no doubt. Will prolly have to take a pretty good clip on a buyout..which i guess you can do in the NBA?

 

OKC now has 16 first round picks through 2026..GMTM is calling them them with expertise on how to use that haul!

I think OKC will trade Chris Paul to Miami, CP3 and Jimmy Butler seem like a better fit than Russ and Butler would've been.

I heard they have been scouting the 5th grade rec leagues and think 2026 is going to be an epic draft 

 

actually I think they are going right try and flip CP3 for more picks too

Cp3 is the perfect guy to lead the tank for okc.  Don't forget he was on the new orleans hornets teams that played in okc after katrina.  He has clearly diminished skill wise which actually works for them.  Big enough name to sell tickets, bad enough player to not cost then draft positioning.

 

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.  I really dislike cp3 he and harden were the worst duo.  Both very good players but harden's style of always looking for a foul and cp3s dirty play/constant whining did not make for fun basketball viewing.

 

Edit and now woj is reporting that okc hopes to move him quickly and without him playing at all for them.

I suppose it's good asset management by Morey.  Even though his contract is ludicrous, RW is younger and better at this point than CP3.  And when you factor in Paul's remaining term, RW is more valuable over the next couple of seasons.  I just can't see him playing second fiddle to Harden.

I've been watching the Lakers summer league team. Nick Perkins from UB is on that squad. He's been playing well but the Lakers haven't signed him. Hope he catches on somewhere.
