    So far, it seems that Miami is most interested. Charles Barkley said that Milwaukee should try to get him, but it looks like they do not have the salaries to match up.

    Here is my outside the box idea.

    Kyle Lowry for Chris Paul. Not sure which way picks should go to even it out, probably from OKC to Toronto. Toronto stretches their window a little hoping CP3 has a little more dominance than he showed in Houston (deferring to Harden) and OKC gets a good pg with only a year left on his deal.

    Any other ideas?

    To CHA for Batum and Zeller. OKC gets shorter contracts, Paul returns home. Jordan gets a replacement of Kemba.

    To DET for Jackson, Snell and Galloway.

    I don't see Chris Paul giving the Raptors that much of a bump over Kyle Lowry who produced in the playoffs and his contract is expiring.

    The Mavericks seem like a logical destination for Paul but Dragic might be a better fit.

    CHA makes a lot of sense but Paul is a shell of the player he once was. He has gotten old fast and is constantly injured. I know people say Westbrook will be a bad fit in HOU because of he is a ball dominant player just like Harden but HOU won that trade.

    That’s an unmitigated disaster trade for Toronto.

    Hardaway, Lee for Paul but if I'm the Mavericks, at this point of the rebuilding that is still too much money owed to Paul.

    Toronto rolled the dice and won a title.
    I hope their fans enjoy that.
    Now they are stuck in the dreaded in between place where you can’t get better until you get worse.

    Toronto still has a very good team. They might need to make some changes but they have the guns to reload rather than rebuild. They should contend in the east.

    Chris Paul's salary is a burden for sure. I like your idea of Hardaway and Lee for Paul.

    OKC would need to sweeten the trade by offering draft picks to make it more attractive for Dallas.

    Not sure why the Mavs would want Paul. They're in a similar situation to us.

    If Porzingis were 100% healthy it would make some sense but I understand the Mavericks are going to be watching his playing time so I can see them hesitating.

    Doncic, Paul and a healthy Porzingis would be pretty good.

    Agree. But Paul only makes that in between place worse. Much worse.

    Report: 'No appetite' among some NBA teams to take on final year of Chris Paul deal

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nb...of-chris-paul-deal/ar-AAEmBou?ocid=spartanntp

    The Oklahoma City Thunder are having a hard time finding anyone to take Chris Paul’s contract off their hands.

    According to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, based on conversations with NBA general managers, there is “almost no appetite” around the league to touch Paul’s contract, particularly the $44 million player option in 2021-22.

    Paul will be 37 years old by the time that deal expires.

    Having talked with a few GMs, there is almost no appetite for the final year of CP3's deal. My understanding is the Thunder may have to shovel over several picks to get a team to look at that cap hit. Today, I think he starts the season in OKC. https://t.co/CmxE04TKaa

    IMO Chris Paul is going to accept a buyout and go play for the LA Lakers.
