    The Rockets recently explored trading Chris Paul into New York’s cap space, but the Knicks refused, according to league sources. Trading Paul would have positioned the Rockets to be a Clint Capela or Eric Gordon trade away from freeing up the cap space to sign Jimmy Butler, who league sources say they plan to pursue. Injuries to the Warriors opened up the West, and there’s a scramble to accumulate talent and take advantage of Golden State’s misfortune.

    KOC also says "The Mavericks are considered favorites to land Celtics free-agent big man Al Horford, according to league sources,"

    @ch44 backed that up already here

    So much smoke. Is it disinformation from other teams / agents?

    Knicks aren’t as stupid as they were before

    What are they gonna do with CP0 anyways? It makes absolutely no sense for them. Maybe if the Rockets were attaching a top 2 pick or something of that nature to CP0 the Knicks would think about taking him.

    Chris Paul is a bitch
    Chris Paul didn't hold up his end
    Screw this guy.


    It's not OK for Chris to want out or request a trade but it is OK for the Rockets to shop him/trade him to New York or wherever they can get a deal.

    oh

    Well, CP0 demanding a trade when he’s got a top 5 worst contract in the league would be funny to me. How are u gonna demand a trade when u got a deal that’s damn near unmovable? Morey needs to have a seat too doing all this talking every summer. Less talk, more action

    I was about to say.

    Knicks and Lakers are suckers for everything.........spare parts.

    Tough road for Morey, I doubt, GSW's double injury was in his plans months ago.

    same.

    If Butler doesn't opt in, it's not happening. I'm not sure we'd even be better with him than having CP3 + one of Gordon or Capela. It would have to be a SNT which would hard cap us. I'm not sure we'd have enough to put together a contender.

    I also think these leaks are coming from a party who wants to hurt us. KOC is reputable so he definitely was told this by a reliable source. Someone out there is planting bad stuff all at once.
