Chris Paul doesn’t seem very excited about going to Golden State?
In the past week, Chris Paul has been a hot topic in the trade market. Initially, rumors suggested that he would be waived by the Phoenix Suns, but then he was involved in a massive trade that sent him to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Bradley Beal.
Shortly thereafter, the Wizards traded him again, this time to the Golden State Warriors for Jordan Poole. Although this places CP3 alongside his quasi-rival, Stephen Curry, he has expressed excitement about the trade.
When asked about his feelings, he said, “I’ve been asked that question so many times already. So, I’m really excited.”
Caught up with Chris Paul tonight – he is in his Winston-Salem hometown promoting his new book “Sixty-One.”

Naturally Twitter noted his unenthusiastic response:
his answer was as dry as Atacama Desert

He don't look no excited. Steph and him been silent beefing for more than a decade! But if there is one player who can make it work, it's Steph!

He’s not happy, trade him home to the Hornets. They need a veteran presence & have good young pieces to place around him.

That was the most enthusiastic response to being traded to the Warriors I've ever seen. I wonder if he was as blind sided as everyone else?

Additionally, Bleacher Reports Chris Haynes reports that the Warriors intend to retain Paul and try to make it work with him and Curry in the backcourt.
Cp3 may need an attitude adjustment before he arrives in San Fran.
