It turns out that not even the NBA Finals can put a pause on the NBA rumor mill.
Especially when it relates to one of most notable players of this generation, with the future of Phoenix point guard Chris Paul absolutely up in the air with the Kevin Durant-infused Suns looking to maximize their current window with a championship.
Midway through a four-year, $130 million contract with the Suns, the 38-year-old Paul is staring down what almost certainly feels like a divorce from the team he’s spent the last three years trying to lead to a championship, with their greatest effort coming back in 2021 with an NBA Finals loss to the Bucks. And when it comes to the reported split between Paul and the Suns, there’s been talk of the Suns trading Paul, and there’s been talk of the Suns outright waiving Paul.
And, naturally, there’s been talk of Paul coming to the Celtics.
