Everyday NBA and NBA 2K17 fans check social media many times for news of NBA offseason player movement. On June 28, 2017, Chris Paul was traded to the Rockets, he tweeted that he was going through an "unbelievable amount of emotions right now."
The Los Angeles Clippers acquired Montrezl Harrell, Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Darrun Hilliard, DeAndre Liggins, Lou Williams, Kyle Wiltjer and a 2018 first-round pick from the Houston Rockets in exchange for Chris Paul. This brings a huge shift in power for both sides, and it takes the point guard off the market for teams like the Spurs that planned to pursue him.
The effects of the trade can be seen through NBA 2K game series as well, where the acquisition of Paul gives the Rockets the best backcourt in the league.
Paul has a 91 Overall rating in NBA 2K17, which ranks him behind Russell Westbrook and Stephen Curry. James Harden, was rated at 96 only behind LeBron James for the best player in the league. Pairing the two All-Stars, the Rockets will have the highest-rated backcourt duo in NBA 2K18.
Paul brings the Rockets his exceptional ability to score at the rim and in the mid-range game. He will even be an upgrade from outside the arc over Patrick Beverley. Paul has great passing skills, Harden actually rates better in the majority of those categories.
There’s no question that the Paul-Harden duo can make the Rockets a better video game team. However, it remains to be seen how well he will cooperate with Harden on the real court together, whether they have the right complimentary pieces around them and what other moves might be made this summer in the reshaping of Houston's roster.
