Chris Paul could be on the move again after being traded from the Rockets to Oklahoma City as part of the Russell Westbrook deal, multiple outlets are reporting.
Paul was sent to the Thunder, along with draft picks, Thursday night as part of the deal. But before OKC's All-Star guard landed in Houston, the Heat had emerged as another possible destination for Westbrook. After news of the trade broke Thursday night, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that it could now be Paul who ends up in Miami.
Houston had reportedly hoped to find a third-team destination for Paul before finalizing the deal, but the team was unable to make it happen, ultimately sending CP3 to the Thunder and leaving Paul and his agent Leon Rose to discuss next steps with Oklahoma City's general manager, Sam Presti. per Wojnarowski. Miami is rumored to still be a possibility for Paul, who has three years and $124 million remaining on his contract.
