Rockets considered having a ‘serious chance’ of luring Chris Paul away
One of the most coveted free agents this summer is L.A. Clippers point guard Chris Paul, who is expected to receive a lot of interest from teams around the league. His proven leadership and playmaking is what makes him very valuable, and many will benefit from his skill set should they be able to land his services.
Although the Clippers, New York Knicks and San Antonio Spurs have all emerged as potential destinations for the Wake Forest product, the Houston Rockets have quickly emerged as one of the favorites as well. There have also been reports that they have a strong chance of signing him, and pairing him with their franchise player, James Harden.

In 12 seasons in the NBA, CP3 has averaged impressive numbers of 18.7 points, 4.4 rebounds, 9.9 assists and 2.3 steals per game. He is widely considered as one of the best floor generals in the league today, and is a very smart player. However, he has failed to make it past the second round of the playoffs, and now at 32-years-old, many are starting to believe that he will take more time to decide where he wants to play next, as he now wants to win a championship more than anything.
Whichever team will be successful in signing him, it will definitely be a huge boost to their chances of winning. His experience and knowledge of the game is second to none, and his addition has the potential to change the landscape of the NBA, especially if he ends up with a strong contender.
