The Philadelphia 76ers are considering pursuing a trade for Chris Paul, per Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer.

The Sixers are in search for a new head coach, but also want to make their team stronger and become a title contender next season.

Per O’Connor, the Sixers have put some serious thought into adding Paul to the roster, however this will not come without a trade.

Paul is expected to have a $41.4 million salary in 2020-21 and a likely $44.2 million in 2021-22 (once he opts in).
