The Phoenix Suns have reportedly informed point guard Chris Paul that they will be waiving him before his guaranteed contract date of June 28, making him one of the best free agents on the market this offseason.
If so, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Knicks will be among the potential touchdown spots for the 38-year-old.
“Look at the two teams in Los Angeles, the Clippers and the Lakers, the Knicks in New York or the Golden State Warriors”, Woj said on Friday’s NBA Countdown. “Those would all be potential destinations for Paul, who would sign a deal at a much lower price than the $30 million he’s guaranteed in Phoenix”.
Paul reportedly has plans to play for several more seasons and would like to join a contender. Signing in New York with the Knicks, who are heading in the right direction after reaching the second round of the playoffs this season, would certainly give him that opportunity.
