Blockbuster: CP3 Headed to PHX

It's starting to feel like this is going to be a big week.

Two days before the NBA Draft, and four days before the start of free agency, we got news of a blockbuster deal, with Chris Paul on his way to Phoenix. The news came via ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Monday, as the 35-year-old future Hall of Famer is reportedly going to the Suns (along with Abdel Nader) for Ricky Rubio, Kelly Oubre, Ty Jerome, Jalen Lecque and a 2022 first-round pick. 

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Steve Alexander and Ryan Knaus join me to discuss the fallout from that trade, and the rumor (via Shams Charania of The Athletic) that James Harden wants out of Houston.

We also highlight the big names expected to go at the top of the NBA Draft (including LaMelo Ball, James Wiseman, Anthony Edwards and Obi Toppin), and break down some of the big players to watch for in free agency, from Fred VanVleet to Montrezl Harrell to Christian Wood — who is apparently going to be difficult to land in fantasy drafts featuring any and all Rotoworld writers.
