Oklahoma City Thunder Trade Chris Paul to the Phoenix Suns
Chris Paul is on the move again.
The Phoenix Suns are finalizing a deal to acquire Oklahoma City Thunder All-Star guard Chris Paul, sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 16, 2020
According to ESPN, the terms of the deal include CP3 and Abdel Nader to the Suns for Kelly Oubre Jr., Ricky Rubio, Ty Jerome, Jalen Lecque and a 2022 first-rounder.
Lines predicted that Phoenix would be one of Paul's best landing spots, and now that's come true. He'll replace Rubio as the team's starting point guard and slot next to the ascending Devin Booker. Paul should also be a big boon to DeAndre Ayton, who will have a point guard who should set him up with great looks in the paint.

In 70 games last season, CP3 averaged 17.6 points, 6.7 assists and shot nearly 49% from the field.
For Oklahoma City, the Thunder now own 17 first-round selections through 2027.
