After nearly two weeks, the press conference for the newest Rockets point guard has been scheduled.

On June 28, the world was shocked to hear that Chris Paul was going to the Houston Rockets. Now, nearly two weeks later, a press conference has been scheduled for him. He will be introduced to the city of Houston and to the fans who want to attend.

The event will be on Friday, July 14 at 2:30 p.m. For fans, the gates open at 1:30 and there will be one dollar nachos and hot dogs. Chris Paul shirt-jerseys will also be available for sale at the press conference. While all of these things seem cool, you have to wonder if CP3 will be the only player being introduced on Friday.

Carmelo Rumors Still Running Wild

The rumors of Carmelo Anthony being traded to the Houston Rockets has taken over. Nearly every reply to a tweet by Adrian Wojnarowski is related to whether or not Melo is coming to Houston, regardless of what the subject is.

With the current state of the Knicks’ front office, who knows when or if a deal will be done. Thankfully, Melo seems pretty confident that he will be a Rocket next season according to Ian Begley of ESPN New York.

Chris Paul stirred the rumor pot, even more, today by saying that we should “sit back and wait” about Carmelo Anthony. Does he know more than he is leading on about? Also, what was with this Instagram post by Nene last night?

Anyways, it has been a crazy free agency for the Rockets so far. Hopefully, there is more of the same in store for the rest of it.
