The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to trade All-Star point guard Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets for Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Lou Williams and a top-three protected 2018 first-round draft pick, a person with knowledge of the agreement told USA TODAY Sports' Sam Amick.
The person spoke under the condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been made public.
The Clippers made the deal after Paul opted-in to the final season of his contract. The veteran point guard would've been one of the most sought-after free agents on the market.
Paul played for the Clippers for the past six seasons, where he failed to lead the team past the second round of the Western Conference playoffs. He now joins NBA MVP runner-up James Harden in Houston's high-powered offense.
Paul, a nine-time All-Star, turned 32 in May.
The Vertical first reported the agreement.
