Chris Paul talks to Daryl Morey about the trade.

Golden State Warriors star Chris Paul joined Dwyane Wade’s podcast The Why with Dwyane Wade on Monday (March 29) to discuss the story behind his trade to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Anything can happen in the NBA, but when it comes to transfers, trust between player and organization is essential. 온라인카지노 A lack of trust on the front end can lead to difficulties down the road.

But when there are at least three stories in less than a year about an executive lying to a player? That’s a pretty devastating blow to your image. It can also have a major impact on future signings.

Daryl Morey, the former Houston general manager turned Philadelphia president, is a man who has been recognized around the league for his abilities. He used data analysis to push the “Morey Ball,” which focuses on three-pointers and inside scoring instead of mid-range jumpers.

Superstar James Harden was close friends with Morey. The two led their teams to Western Conference dominance in Houston and reunited in Philadelphia.

However, the relationship between Harden and Morris, which seemed to be solid, quickly cooled. Frustrated with his lukewarm attitude toward an extension with Philadelphia, Harden publicly sniped at Morey, calling him a “liar” for not keeping his word. Frustrated with Morey, Harden was traded to the Clippers shortly after the season began.

Patrick Beverley, who was recently traded from Philadelphia to Milwaukee after the trade deadline, also expressed his frustration with Morey for not honoring his promise that he would not be traded.

Moreover, Chris Paul’s credibility was further damaged when he revealed an anecdote about Morris. Paul said he was told on his way from Houston to Oklahoma City that he wouldn’t be traded, only to find out shortly afterward.

“It all started when Kawhi Leonard went to the Clippers and Paul George got traded. Russell Westbrook was still in Oklahoma City and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had joined Oklahoma City, so when I met him in Las Vegas, I told him, ‘This is going to be great for you, and I want you to play your heart out on your new team,'” Paul said.

“I went to the gym to work out and Mori called me and he said, ‘I’m calling to make sure you don’t want to go to Oklahoma City,’ and I said I didn’t want to go, and he said, ‘Okay. I was just checking in. I’m never going to trade you anywhere you don’t want to go because you’re coming to us from the Clippers,'” he added.

Paul, who found out about the trade while on the phone with his wife, vented his disappointment on the phone with Morey, double-checking the facts.

“I was at home on the phone with my wife, and I got the notification that I had been traded to Oklahoma City, and then I got a call from Morey, and he said, ‘Things moved so fast,’ and I said, ‘That’s fine. Tell me one thing, didn’t you say you weren’t going to trade me?” And he admitted it. So I said, ‘That’s all I need to know,'” he explains.

That’s not to say Morris’ move didn’t make sense at the time. Houston was in need of a change, and Paul’s performance left a lot to be desired after the previous season’s failures. But aside from that, Paul’s statement is a breach of trust for not honoring a promise to a player.

Mori’s current team, Philadelphia, is facing an important summer transfer window. With plenty of salary cap space, the team is poised to make a big splash in free agency. It’s never good news to hear bad things about Mori at this point.
