Chris Paul Signs $120 Million Deal With Phoenix Suns
Chris Paul has reportedly signed a four-year extension that will keep him with the Phoenix Suns. The deal is worth up to $120 million. His agents Steve Heumann and Ty Sullivan confirmed the deal when speaking with ESPN. Paul is expected to be ready for the Suns’ training camp after having surgery on his left wrist.
Paul’s deal comes alongside signings of guard Cameron Payne and big man JaVale McGee. Payne will be with the Suns for three years, and McGee for one.
Earlier, Paul declined his $44 million player option for next season.
Paul averaged 16.4 points per game alongside 49.9% shooting, 8.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game.
“I think for me, I just look at myself and figure out how can I get better, what I could have done more, and make sure I come back next season ready to do it again,” Paul said of his time with the Suns.
Phoenix was just two wins away from an NBA Finals win.
