A report surfaced on Tuesday that Chris Paul will not take a pay cut to stay with the Rockets and is expecting a max contract. This puts a bit of a wrench in the Rockets plans if they want to pursue LeBron James in the off-season.
Ben Maller thinks that Chris Paul is exactly the kind of player that Magic Johnson would go after in the off-season. He is a star in the league, he's charismatic, and he has the gift of gab. On top of all that, the Lakers will have a huge amount of cap space this summer and Chris Paul would be the perfect mentor to Lonzo Ball as he approaches the twilight of his career.
