Report: Warriors waive Chris Paul

The Golden State Warriors are waiving veteran point guard Chris Paul, The Athletic and ESPN reported Sunday.

Sunday was the deadline for the Warriors to guarantee Paul’s $30 million contract for next year. The team and Paul reportedly agreed to push back the deadline from Friday to Sunday as the Warriors sought a trade partner.

Paul, 39, becomes a free agent just ahead of the start of the new league year Monday.

The 12-time All-Star was traded last summer from the Phoenix Suns to Washington Wizards, then dealt again two weeks later to the Warriors.

Playing in 58 games for Golden State last season (18 starts), Paul averaged 9.2 points with 6.8 assists in a career-low 26.4 minutes per game.

Paul has averaged 17.5 points and 9.4 assists in 1,272 games (1,232 starts) over 19 seasons. He was named Rookie of the Year in 2006 and has finished in the top five of MVP voting five times, but his scoring average has dipped in each of the past four seasons.

Paul ranks third in NBA history in both steals (2,614) and assists (11,894).
