Jimmy Butler and Chris Paul are unsurprisingly among the NBA's most clutch players, but how did the Sixers fare in the clutch? By Noah Levick

Chris Paul’s days as a member of the Thunder may be numbered. But those hoping that he would find his way to Milwaukee to team up with Giannis Antetokounmpo may be out of luck. According to Eric Nehm and Sam Amick of The Athletic, the Bucks’ ownership is wary of Paul’s price tag — his contract calls for him to earn about $85 million over the next two seasons. Because Milwaukee is over the salary cap, constructing a trade for Paul would be difficult without including some combination of Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, Eric Bledsoe and George Hill

Ian Begley and Maurice Peebles tip off the show with some Chris Paul to the Knicks discussion, while Ian reveals what he learned from talking with NBA Draft Prospect RJ Hampton and his shooting coach, 2x NBA Champion Mike Miller.

It comes down to the $85.5 million Chris Paul is owed the next two seasons, plus a potential personality clash.
