Hello! @JLEdwardsIII and I are about to go live and podcast! We’re going to talk a bit about the weird Zion Williamson situation, the Chris Paul/NYT interview, and then the Pistons, who are at a weird intersection of everything this offseason.… PM

Biggest thing I don’t get about this trade is people acting like Chris Paul is some washed scrub. Higher BPM than Beal last year and played more games.…5:25 PM

There’s a small part of me that thinks, a few years from now, Chris Paul’s career is going to end with him winning a championship as the backup point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder. – 4:50 PM

Ball Don’t Lie @Balldontlie
Chris Paul was on a plane when he found out he was traded to the Wizards 😳
Seemed like that was still a touchy subject this morning.

🆕 @TheAthletic
For the second Monday in a row, we discuss a possible reconnection between the LA Clippers and Chris Paul.
But it’s not just how and why the Clippers would be interested in CP3 2.0. Here’s a look at the other stakeholders involved too.…10:27 AM

Chris Haynes @ChrisBHaynes
Chris Paul says he found out he was traded on a flight to NY for his @GMA appearance: “In this league, anything can happen. You just figure out what’s next.” This was prescheduled to promote his new book, Sixty-One. AM
Cameron Tabatabaie @CTabatabaie
If it’s true Chris Paul would frequently fly back to LA to be with family in between Suns obligations, I don’t really see how he ends up anywhere other than California – 9:40 AM
Jeff Wade @SkinWade
The point of all this is that a father and son executed a shakedown. How did the ghost of David Stern not step in and once again halt a CP3 trade?
I mean, it doesn’t impact my life but it’s NBA so it’s fun to wildly opine on these matters – 9:00 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
In light of Clippers monitoring Chris Paul situation, this interaction from @TheShopUN where Paul showed his appreciation for Tyronn Lue as an assistant in 2013-14 hits a little different.
CP: “I haven’t played for him as a head coach, but I’m sure he’s still the same way.” AM

More on this storyline

The Clippers are interested in a reunion with Chris Paul, sources within the team not authorized to speak publicly on the matter have said. He has pre-existing and strong trust with Clippers coach Tyronn Lue from their overlapping seasons with the Clippers when Lue was Doc Rivers’ assistant. -via Los Angeles Times / June 19, 2023
The Lakers for sure would have interest in acquiring Chris Paul, but only for the veteran minimum. If he were to take that from the Lakers, it would be a good deal for the Lakers and allow them to retain Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura possibly without hurting their salary cap too much. -via Los Angeles Times / June 19, 2023
You said recently in another interview that you wanted to remain in Phoenix. What are your feelings toward the organization at the moment? Chris Paul: Like I said, Mat and Isiah, they want to go in a different direction. But my time there has been amazing. You know what I mean? It’s been great. And so, get back to work. -via New York Times / June 19, 2023
