Well, we’re just a quarter of the way into that four-year, $160 million deal and already Woj is reporting the Rockets have made Paul available for trade.

No one knows how much of today’s report is about the tension between Paul and Harden, how much is about Paul’s bloated contract, and how much stems from a desire to shake things up.

Just ask the Toronto Raptors.

No one should begrudge the Rockets for paying through the nose for Paul.

Trading for him was a risk they had to take.
