Phoenix Suns star point guard Chris Paul has agreed to stick with a new four-year contract that could be worth up to $ 120 million, his agents Steve Heumann and Ty Sullivan confirmed to ESPN.
Paul led the Suns to the NBA Finals in his first year with the team. He averaged 16.4 points, 8.9 assists and 4.5 rebounds in the season.
Paul is expected to be ready for the start of training camp next season after undergoing surgery on his left wrist, a source added to The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears to ESPN on Monday. The 36-year-old was seen with duct tape on his left wrist during the Finals.
Paul, who declined his $ 44 million player option for next season before the new deal was agreed, is an 11-time All-Star.
Following the Suns’ Game 6 loss in the NBA Finals, Paul apparently hinted at an interest in staying in Phoenix to help the Suns overcome the blow. Clearly, he meant it.
“I think for myself, I just look at myself and find out how I can improve, what I could have done more and make sure I come back next season ready to do it again,” he said.
