Brooklyn rejected Chris Paul.
The Athletic’s reporter Shams Charania reported on the 6th (Korean time) that the Phoenix Suns offered Chris Paul, Jay Crowder and multiple draft picks to the Brooklyn Nets for Kyrie Irving.
However, Brooklyn refused and agreed to 먹튀검증a deal with Dallas. Dallas hands over Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney Smith, 2029 1st round pick, 2027, 2029 2nd round pick.
This is pretty surprising news. Chris Paul is one of the greatest point guards of all time, a resource that has been on the court ever since a 2005 draft pick. It was a move by Brooklyn that gave us a glimpse of how negatively teams were viewing his aging issues.
Paul is averaging 13.8 points and 8.6 assists per game this season. He has a 39% 3-point shot success rate, so his hit rate from the outskirts is still the same, but the attack efficiency is not coming out as the basic at-bat rate has plummeted to 43.5%. The average score itself is a career low.
Paul has surprised fans with his performance in forgetting his age, but from this season, there are clear signs of aging. You can get a glimpse of Paul’s fallen status in that Phoenix tried to trade him right away, and Brooklyn rejected it and recruited Dinwiddie, who is far inferior in terms of name value.
According to reporter Karania, Brooklyn wanted three first-round picks in the Paul-Crowder package. By contrast, it took only one first-round pick and two second-round picks to acquire Phineas Smith and Dinwiddie. If this is the case, I think it can be said that Paul didn’t want it.
