No Chris Paul trade looming for Thunder

Chris Paul will now likely start next season playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder

The Thunder have been working with Paul's camp to find a suitable trade destination for the nine-time All-Star, however "nothing has materialised" thus far, Wojnarowski added.

Per Woj, discussions surrounding trading Paul "are parked" and there is an "increasing expectation" that the 34-year-old point guard will start next season in Oklahoma City. According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder's talks to try and move him have stalled. Paul is set to make $38 million this season, and his contract runs through 2022, when he's set to make over $44 million.

Paul had a positive experience in Oklahoma City during the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons, when his New Orleans team was relocated there because of Hurricane Katrina.

A starting five of Paul, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari, Andre Roberson and Steven Adams has the potential to be a frisky team.

In another blockbuster move, the Thunder traded Westbrook to the Rockets and received Chris Paul, two first-round picks and the rights to first-round pick swaps in 2021 and 2025.

Sources told Wojnarowski the Thunder don't feel the need to surrender draft compensation to unload Paul's contract right now. Free agents signed this offseason can't be traded until December 15 of this coming season, which is when Paul rumors are expected to again heat up. While he's hardly a building block given his advanced age and recent regression, Paul sticking around in OKC for a year might not be the worst thing in the world. While it was sad to see Chris Paul leave Houston, especially after his contributions both on and off the court, it's quite obvious that Houston improved after the trade.
