NBA All-Star guard James Harden and backcourt newcomer Chris Paul are expected to team up Sunday for LA Unified in the Drew League in Los Angeles, a source told The Undefeated. This marks the first time the two will play together since Paul was acquired by the Houston Rockets.

Spears pointed out that the matchup would be particularly intriguing for Paul and Harden if they do team up.

The matchup at the famed Pro-Am is even more intriguing due to the fact that LA Unified plays Home Town Favorites, which is expected to star 2017 NBA Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook, a source said.

Since getting traded in June, many have wondered how the two guard would play together. And considering just how much Paul handles the ball on offense and the role Harden grew into last season, it would be fascinating to watch them share the offense in any kind of basketball setting.

This summer we’ve seen AAU tournaments filled to the brim and even the Las Vegas Summer League sessions saw sellouts. It’s hard to imagine empty seats for a Drew League matchup featuring Harden and Paul squaring off against Russell Westbrook.
