Chris Paul traded to Houston Rockets for Sam Dekker, Lou Williams, Pat Beverley, 2018 first round pick

According to sources, the Houston Rockets have traded for point guard Chris Paul in exchange for Sam Dekker, Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley and a 2018 first round draft pick.

Paul supposedly met with the Clippers for 90 minutes on Tuesday morning before letting them know Houston would be his choice during free agency.

Paul going to a different team will cost him $11.6 million next year, when comparing the full max he could have received from the Clippers to the contract he’ll get from the Rockets.
