Paul is coming off of a season in which he made the All-NBA Second Team with averages of 17.6 points, 6.7 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game. He led the Thunder to the playoffs, ending with them losing in seven games to the Houston Rockets in the first round.
Last week, ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Tim Bontemps reported that the Suns were interested in trading for Paul.
Paul has two more years remaining on his contract. He'll make $41.4 million in 2020-21 and has a player option worth $44.2 million in the 2021-22 season.
