Basketball Career and Net Worth

Paul kept on adding to his amazing career details when he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers in 2011 and after that the Houston Rockets in 2017. Despite all of his great teams, he was not able to achieve his dream of winning an NBA title.

When the Clippers traded him to the Houston Rockets, he thought it would be his best chance to win a title. Getting matched with scoring machine James Harden, Paul drove the Rockets to a NBA-best 65 wins in 2017-18. He even reached the Western Conference finals for the first time ever in his career, before the Rockets tumbled to the Golden State Warriors in seven games.
