Phoenix Suns has basically agreed to a deal to take over Chris Paul, a Thunder All-Star security guard in Oklahoma City, according to ESPN sources Adrian Voynarovski.
The deal sends Paul and Abdel Nader to the sun for Kelly Oobre, Jr., Ricky Rubio, Thai Jerome, Jalene Lecke and a 2022 van, according to ESPN sources.
The owner of the Suns, Robert Sarver, brings the future Hall of Fame goalkeeper and franchise manager to the Phoenix and brings the star Devin Booker to a fellow runner. After the end of last season’s 8-0 bell and giving the impulse, the Suns suddenly became a factor in this season’s Western Conference.
ESPN’s Bobby Marks says that as a cost-cutting measure, the sun may decide to postpone trading until the moratorium is lifted on Sunday. For example, the sun could first use the space for his salary and then go over the hat as a team.
Paul, 35, will be reunited with Sun’s coach Monty Williams, who has trained the playmaker for a season (2010/11) in New Orleans. This season the team surpassed the 46:36 mark and lost the first round of the playoffs.
His basketball spirit, Paul van Williams said in December, I’m so excited about the pieces he made up.
The floor was bought by Thunder last summer from the Houston Rockets in exchange for Russell Westbrook, two future first-round pickups and two trade-in pickups. By adding another future pioneer, he places Westbrook’s tractor in the top three, plus the exchange of implements (and a successful year with Paul).

Paul returned to Oklahoma City and regained his reputation as the God of Points when he took command of the young UCC to lead them to a top position in the playoffs. Paul played in the All Stars game for the first time since 2016 and was included in the All NBA team (runner-up).
He was traumatized at several points in his career, but Paul had one of the most complete and prolonged seasons with Thunder, missing only one game because he was mourning for a good friend, Kobe Bryant. In 70 games, Pavel averaged 17.6 points, 6.7 assists and 5.0 rebounds. He also led the league in clutch time and led Thunder in close games, earning 5th place in the West.
Paul’s big contract – he has two years left with over $80 million – combined with his age, has made him a player previously considered virtually unsaleable. But he moved twice in two years, and Sunnyshko found that Paul’s season of corruption in the UCC had opened the way for a disagreement at the Western Conference and approved the price of his contract.
Chris Paul has been a central figure in several blockbusters during his NBA career, including one case that was rejected by the competition.
2020: Trade the sun for four players and select the first round (including Ricky Rubio, Kelly Aubrey)
2019: Went to Thunder with two trips to Russell Westbrook.
2017: Missile exchange for seven players and selection of the first round (including Patrick Beverly, Montrell Harrell, Lou Williams).
2011: Sold to the Clippers for Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Faruk Amin and first choice.
2011*: Sold the Lakers under a tripartite agreement with Pau Gasol, Lamar Odom, Kevin Martin, Louis Scola.
– ESPN Statistics and Information – has vetoed trade.
Thunder has experience working with star players and their representatives and, as with Carmello Anthony, Paul George and Westbrook, Thunder’s General Manager Sam Presti worked with Paul’s CAA representatives Thai Sullivan and Steve Heyman to bring Paul to his favorite destination.
For Thunder, this is part of a relocation and conversion plan that began after George was handed over to the Los Angeles Clippers, which then led Westbrook to switch to Rocket. After the agreement of Dennis Schroeder for the first round with the Los Angeles Lakers, Thunder now has 17 laps to go between 2020 and 2026.
Thunder can’t be done with the option to sign and sell the unlimited agent Danilo Gallinari to the challenger or move the Stephen Adams Center to obtain additional capital in the form of a bill of exchange. You can also follow some recently acquired veterans such as Danny Green (taken over by Schroeder), Rubio or Oubre.
But so far the Thunder has officially started the long-awaited revival by handing over the keys to the franchise to the young Shai-star Gilgius-Alexander, who trained under Paul last season. They then wait for the buyback of their recruitment box, and their next future franchise star may still be waiting for his driver’s license.
