    Suns’ Chris Paul: Hands out 11 assists in 22 minutes

    Chris Paul went for eight points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and 11 assists in Wednesday’s preseason win over the Lakers.After sitting out the Phoenix Suns’ preseason opener for rest purposes, Paul didn’t have much rust to shake off, as he carved up the Lakers’ defense for 11 of Phoenix’s 31 assists as a team. Heading into his age-36 campaign, it’s possible the Suns could make more of an effort to preserve Paul during the regular season, but he was already held to 31.4 minutes per game in 2020-21, so as long as he’s healthy his workload likely won’t dip too much lower.

    Suns’ Chris Paul: Off injury report

    Chris Paul (wrist) doesn’t appear on the Phoenix Suns’ injury report ahead of Monday’s preseason opener versus the Kings.Paul’s exclusion from the report doesn’t mean that he’ll play in the preseason opener, but it’s at least an indication that he’s made a full recovery from the surgery he required on his right wrist following the NBA Finals. After failing to play more than 61 games in three straight seasons from 2016-17 through 2018-19, Paul has missed just four contests over 72-game campaigns in 2019-20 and 2021-22. Betting on that durability continuing in his age-36 season is somewhat of a risk, but Paul should remain one of the NBA’s top assist men and most efficient scoring point guards whenever he takes the floor.

    Suns’ Chris Paul: Agrees to four-year deal with Suns

    Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns agreed to terms Monday on a four-year deal that could be worth as much as $120 million, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.The deal cannot be made official until later in the week, but the two sides wasted little time in negotiating a contract that could keep Paul in Phoenix until he’s 40 years old. After a one-year detour in Oklahoma City, the 36-year-old instantly changed the Suns’ fortunes last season, leading the team all the way to the NBA Finals. Across 70 games, Paul averaged 16.4 points, 8.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals while shooting 49.9 percent from the field — his highest figure since the 2008-09 season. Once considered an injury-prone player on a bloated contract, Paul has bucked that narrative in his mid-30s, missing just four regular season games over the last two seasons combined. As he heads toward his late-30s, the injury concerns won’t disappear, but Paul has proven he still has plenty left in the tank as he enters his 17th NBA season.

    Chris Paul: To decline $44.2 million option

    Chris Paul will decline his $44.2 million player option for the 2021-22 season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.As expected, the veteran guard will test the free-agency waters as he heads into his age-36 season. The Suns remain the favorites to retain Paul’s services, but he figures to receive heavy interest from a number of teams with cap space or the assets to pull off a sign-and-trade. After battling injuries for most of his prime years, Paul has stayed remarkably healthy in each of the past two seasons, missing just four total regular-season games over that stretch. He’s coming off of a strong 2020-21 campaign during which he averaged 16.4 points, 8.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 70 appearances for the NBA Finals runner-ups.

Though he committed multiple turnovers for the fourth time in his last five games, he also surpassed the 20-point mark for the third time in that span. Paul averaged 21.8 points, 8.2 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 0.7 steals per game during the Finals.

    Suns’ Chris Paul: Notches double-double in loss

    Chris Paul totaled 21 points (9-15 FG, 3-3 3Pt), 11 assists, two rebounds and a blocked shot over 35 minutes in Saturday’s Game 5 loss to the Bucks.Paul bounced back from a quiet 10-point effort in Game 4 with his first double-double of the series, but it wasn’t enough to prevent the Bucks from grabbing the win and a 3-2 series lead. The veteran point guard has played well overall during his first trip to the Finals, posting per-game averages of 21.0 points and 8.8 assists while shooting 54.3 percent from the field (including 52.4 percent from deep). With Phoenix facing an elimination game Tuesday, Paul’s leadership at the point could be key if the team is to force a Game 7.
