    Yea pretty sure youíre right. I mean if he wants out of OKC itís probably his only way. Might mean the heat decide to only take 1 pick from OKC too

    Just canít see a guy possibly declining 44mil that late in his career. It would be malpractice. Heís also the Union chief, no shot he does that

    If CP agrees to decline his 3rd year as part of the trade effectively making it a 2yr contract, I'd gladly welcome him. To be honest I'd even do it letting them keep them both of our picks, but at least adding lottery protection to the 2021 pick (but if it doesn't convey in 2021 the deal is satisfied).

    The trade would still be tricky to get Miami under the hard cap nonetheless. I'm not confident a deal gets done even if everyone's on board.

    And like everyone has said, I see 0.01% chance he declines that option.

    Yea I agree that if Paul eliminates his player option than I would welcome that trade but I would still want our 2023 1st pick back just because those protections last until 2026 which means the next earliest pick we can trade would be 2028 and since that's further than seven years out we can't trade it even if we wanted to anyways...The Thunder can still keep our unprotected 2021 pick tho

    I was playing with the trade machine and the trade that kind of makes sense would be: Chris Paul and Patrick Patterson's expiring contract and our 2023 first round pick for Goran Dragic's expiring, Meyers Leonard's expiring and James Johnson's two year deal...We trade out $45.853 million and we get in return $44.217 million...But that trade would have to wait until 9/4/19 since Leonard has a trade restriction that expires then

    If Paul is willing to eliminate his player option ONLY for us than that would give us major leverage in trade negotiations since any other team will clearly ask for 1-2 first round picks due to that third year at $44 million...But again, like you and countless others have said the probability of Paul eliminating his player option is close to zero
