Paul, who opted into his contract yesterday, did so only to be moved later on for more pieces.

The Rockets traded out Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Lou Williams and a first round pick.
The 8 players Houston’s sending to LAC (including pick) for Chris Paul is most in NBA history for a single player, passing the ‘07 KG trade.

That’s a nice haul for the Clippers to get, and small enough for the Rockets to land an All-NBA guard in return.
Chris Paul was owed $3.6 million for being traded (kicker) – he reduced it to $661K to make the trade work. (via @BobbyMarks42)
