  • Paul: 'I never asked for a trade' from Rockets

"I never demanded a trade".

"It's cool", Paul said.

On Sunday while speaking with reporters at his Go hoop Day, Paul quickly shut down the rumors.

Paul, who was rumored to have demanded a trade out of Houston due to his disintegrating relationship with James Harden, says that didn't happen. "I'm happy about that". Further escalating those rumors are reports that the Rockets have placed everyone - outside of Harden - on the trade block in an effort to increase their chances of winning an National Basketball Association championship next season.

Iran: New US sanctions target supreme leader
The United States has embarked on a "maximum pressure campaign" to isolate Iran and roll back its influence in the region. Trump also said the sanctions would have been imposed regardless of the incident over the drone.

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported that the Rockets discussed a trade for Paul to the New York Knicks, which was rebuffed, while they are also reportedly targeting Philadelphia 76ers swingman Jimmy Butler in free agency.

Rumors and speculation have overtaken a Houston Rockets team that failed to match up to the Golden State Warriors in the postseason despite, well, that being the entire goal of the organization. I'm good ... There's only team that wins at the end of the year, you know what I mean? Paul said. "Since I went to Houston, from Day 1, it's been about winning games".

That said, it's still unclear whether the Rockets will keep Paul in their plans for the 2019-20 season. "It's always about winning games".

Paul has three more years left on his current contract and is owed $38.5 million, $41.3 million and $44.2 million, respectively.
