Chris Paul has the option to opt out of his contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder this offseason.

However, the NBA All-Star said he has no plans to leave the team.

“I don’t control that. [Thunder General manager] Sam Presti has been amazing this year and Oklahoma was amazing, obviously we’ll see what happens this summer or whatnot.

It’s nice to be here and be close to my family. I think for me, I’m gonna let everything play out, see what happens, but I’m in a good place.

I wish we could’ve kept advancing in the playoffs, but I don’t have no plans of opting out no time soon, neither,” Paul said, via Moke Hamilton of USA TODAY SPORTS.

Paul is set to earn around $85 million over the next two seasons.
