The veteran point guard of the Phoenix Suns, Chris Paul, has already decided to give up the $ 44.4 million of his player option to return to NBA free agency this summer. The 36-year-old, who qualified for the Conference Semifinals last night with his current team, would have as his main goal signing a multi-year contract.
Much market is anticipated for CP3, with rumors pointing to the New York Knicks led by his former agent Leon Rose, despite his advanced age. The player’s idea would be sign for a minimum of three years and about $ 100 million.
His complicated shoulder injury, which he has dragged throughout this first round against the Lakers, could also intrude on the player’s plans.
Whatever happens, his name is sure to be strong in the coming months, starting during the playoff games with the Suns, who will face Nikola Jokic’s Denver Nuggets in the semis.
