Chris Ryan is thinking Chris Paul could go to the Rockets instead of the Spurs. He does the homework and breaks down why this could be a thing. I don’t believe it, but I appreciate the investigating. I still think Spurs. No matter where he goes, this quote is what I’ve been saying about him leaving the Clippers and that extra money on the table:
Being Chris Paul is all the leverage Chris Paul needs, right? Maybe a shot at a ring is worth $50 million to him.
Chris Ryan ultimately agrees with me:
San Antonio makes the most sense for Paul. He becomes an immediate and huge upgrade at point guard, plays for a team that takes winning basketball games as seriously as he does, and plays for a coach who knows how to navigate a season in order to peak in the playoffs.
