After spending six years with the Los Angeles Clippers, Chris Paul is officially out.

The Clippers will deal the NBA All-Defensive team point guard to the Houston Rockets for guards Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams, forwards Sam Dekker and Kyle Wiltjer, along with several non-guaranteed contracts, a protected 2018 first-round pick, and $661,000.

In the first blockbuster deal, announced on Wednesday, of what could be an hyperactive free-agent period, Twitter had plenty to say.

For CP3, saying goodbye to Los Angeles after six years was bittersweet:

His former teammates also reflected on their time with CP3:

Gonna miss @CP3, been thru a lot of wars, battles, ups & downs together the last 5 years.. One of the best pg's EVER. #brotherregardless

Patrick Beverley and Sam Dekker joined in on the bittersweet sentimentality, but are ready to be a part of the Clippers:

Lou Williams seemed to take the news relatively lightly:

Thanx houston for the love. But let's pretend like those 3 months didn't happen. No harm No foul lol.

Sixth man of the year and current Rockets player Eric Gordon said his goodbyes:

Unfortunate to see Pat, Lou and Sam go, couldn't ask for better teammates! Good luck to you guys on your next journey

One big takeaway, though, is the extended family that forms in the NBA and in professional sports at-large:

My brother off to a new journey! Best of luck @CP3!! H-Town y'all got a great one coming to your city. #BrotherHood

When friends of mine are happy then I'm equally as happy for them. Congrats to my brother @CP3 on choosing his own direction. #Brotherhood

Hate seeing @patbev21 @dekker & Lou go. That intensity & passion that Pat brings is tough to replace. Much love bro, will still be watching!
