Bad move by the Clips, IMO.

They had all the leverage in the world to say you won't get a better deal than Bledsoe/Aminu/Kaman/ + Minny's 1st rounder or Gordon. The longer Paul stayed a Hornet the more likely the Clips were to get that deal done. You can argue all you want that the TWolves pick might not be top 5 but we don't know that yet and for just two seasons with no guarantee beyond that I'd say this is a damn steep price, even for Chris Paul. EDIT: Especially after claiming Billups.
