The Houston Rockets seemed to have its sights set on acquiring Chris Paul one way or another.

The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that James Harden had been recruiting Paul all season long. One league executive reportedly revealed Harden was telling some that Paul to Houston was a “done deal.”

Paul opted into the final year of his contract with the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday and he was traded to Houston immediately after that for a bevy of players.
