NBA Rumors: Chris Paul Trade Deal with Minnesota Timberwolves Confirmed?

NBA Chris Paul Trade Deal with Minnesota Timberwolves

Chris Paul might have been wearing the Oklahoma City Thunder jersey but he might not play for them in the NBA 2019-20 season. OKC traded out Russel Westbrook and got Paul in exchange from the Rockets, but it was always intended as an asset and not as a player.

Minnesota Timberwolves are on those NBA teams who can make a big difference if they got a few high-profile supporting players around Karl-Anthony Towns. As per the reports, the Timberwolves are planning a big blockbuster deal with the Thunder, which would involve Chris Paul, Nerlens Noel and a lot of other picks and assets.

As per the proposed trade exchange deal, the Timberwolves will send out a trade package of Andrew Wiggins, Jeff Teague, Gorgui Dieng, a 2020 first-round pick, and a 2022 second-round pick. In return, the Thunder would exchange out Chris Paul, Danilo Gallinari, and Nerlens Noel to the Minnesota NBA team.

The blockbuster exchange deal would give the Timberwolves two All-Star veterans in the form of Paul and Gallinari who could help Karl-Anthony Towns in leading the team in the NBA 2019-20 season. OKC would also get their load of young players and future picks which they kind of need for rebuilding their team.

Chris Paul may not be the best point guard but he is still much better than Jeff Teague from the Timberwolves. In the last NBA season, Paul ranked at the 4th position among the point guard for RPM, while Teague got down to the 40th position.

Paul has multiple abilities, can create shots, make instant decisions and even stops the other defenders. It would also benefit Andrew Wiggins who was being sidelined in the Minnesota team by Karl-Anthony Towns as he can now take the center stage in Oklahoma City Thunder team.
