Is Chris Paul getting ready to leave the Los Angeles Clippers? The veteran star point guard reportedly is selling his house in Los Angeles to fuel NBA trade rumors and speculations that “CP3” is on his way out of the Clippers.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Paul is selling his house in Bel Air, Los Angeles, which previously belonged to pop singer Avril Lavigne.
“The 12,184 square feet of interior has been updated during Paul’s ownership and features vibrant hardwood floors, modern fixtures and white gallery walls. Among the amenities are a 12-seat theater, a billiards room and a gym with a sauna. An elevator services both floors,” the article described Paul’s house up for sale.
The article notes that while Paul sold his house in Bel Air, he still has his home in Calabasas, also in California and the NBA trade rumors of him leaving the Clippers soon could be unfounded at this point.
However, Chris Paul has been rumored to many speculations last season and this summer because he has failed to help the Clippers win a title in his stint in Los Angeles.
Among the teams reportedly interested in Paul in the past are the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, the team already won a title with Kyrie Irving at the starting point guard position and it makes no sense to break up the core in LeBron James’ squad.
Paul will hit free agency after the 2016-2017 season and could be playing in his final year in Los Angeles if the Clippers don’t win another title or have another failed postseason run. Other Clippers’ like Blake Griffin are also involved in NBA trade rumors with the power forward’s contract also expiring after the new season.
Did Chris Paul sell his L.A. home because he’s going to be traded or leaving via free agency next year?
