According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Rivers and the Rockets have agreed to a guaranteed deal for the rest of the season with the team. This news comes after Rivers and Phoenix Suns agreed the former-Washington Wizard fit better with a more veteran team. And while Rivers will take a load off of Brandon Knight, the addition has raised some concerns as Rivers and the Rockets' focal piece Chris Paul have had a chaotic history that dates back to their time as teammates on the LA Clippers.
Sources have been on record stating that during their time as teammates, Paul felt Rivers had a sense of entitlement because his father Doc Rivers was the coach of the Clippers. This resulted in some bad-blood that boiled over last season when Paul and the Rockets tried to use the Staples Center's secret tunnels to get into the Clippers' locker room following a heated game.
Despite their past, those close to the team say Paul had no objections to Rivers coming to the Rockets, and it is assumed that he will help stabilize the team while CP3 is out with a strained hamstring.
