Things seem to be deteriorating in Houston rather quickly.

After 2 back-to-back seasons of being eliminated by the Golden State Warriors, the team seems dead set and changing up the roster drastically.

One of those moves seem to involve moving Chris Paul, who received a massive deal during the 2018 offseason.

The Rockets have reportedly engaged teams with the necessary cap space to absorb the $38.5 million Paul is owed for the 19-20 season in addition to the two seasons beyond that totaling $125 million.

While GM Daryl Morey has already publicily stated the Rockets do not plan to trade Paul — owner Tilman Fertitta has expressed regret over the Rockets’ decision to sign Paul to a four-year max contract, according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
