Chris Paul could be on the move again this offseason
The LA Clippers wrapped up their lengthy search for a head coach last week and wound up landing on an in-house hire with Tyronn Lue to succeed Doc Rivers, but now there is talk of them potentially bringing a former Clipper back into the organization.
Last week, while discussing the Clippers offseason with co-hosts Keyshawn Johnson and Zubin Mehenti, former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Jay Williams, expressed the sentiment that Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul could very well find himself back in Los Angeles before the start of the 2021 NBA season.

“I’m telling you, it feels like the Clippers are going to try to make a strong move, to bring Chris Paul back to the Clipper organization.”
Since the NBA Finals wrapped up just over a week ago, there have been rumors floating around about the Los Angeles Lakers potentially seeking a trade for Paul. After hearing this revelation from Williams, this may prove to be an even busier offseason than usual for all 30 teams. An offseason that is all but guaranteed to be shortened as the news broke last week about the NBA planning to start the 2021 regular season on January 18 (MLK day).
If this date holds true, then we’ll see an offseason that is usually closer to five months, jammed into about three months. This means the draft and all pre-draft activity, free agency, training camps, and any other usual happenings of an NBA offseason will be forced to take place within a timeframe of about 90 days.
This NBA offseason should be one of the more interesting ones we have seen in quite some time. It should be immensely entertaining to watch how teams further maneuver their way through these unprecedented times.
Also, this new Chris Paul storyline should continue to gain steam as we get closer and closer to the new year.
