Chris Paul

The simple answer for whether the Chicago Bulls should invest $124 million over the next three seasons in a 34-year-old point guard who clearly has lost a step is, well, no. But that’s too simple. So let’s do a quick dive into whether Chris Paul would actually be worth a look.

It appears that all is not well in Houston, as James Harden and Paul are apparently not seeing eye-to-eye. Whether that means the Chicago Bulls should bail out the Rockets and ship assets to Clutch City is a different story altogether.

Just finishing his 14th season in the NBA, Paul averaged 15.6 points, 8.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds while shooting 35.8 percent from long range. At one point in his illustrious career, CP3 was considered the best point guard in the league, but that time has faded and his veteran presence would be a questionable fit with the Bulls.

This is really only a discussion based on’s tweet stating that GarPax came close to dealing Markkanen and Kris Dunn to Houston for Paul before changing their mind.

In this case, being a flip-flopper is a good thing.
