Chris Paul is interested in joining the Phoenix Suns, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Suns have engaged in trade talks regarding Paul, as Windhorst revealed.

“It’s really the Suns and Chris Paul who have to work it out with each other. The Thunder have given Chris Paul permission to talk to the Suns. It normally would be tampering, but they’ve given him permission.

I think it’s over 50-50… I think there’s momentum towards it. I think Chris Paul is interested in being a Phoenix Sun, and that is not a minor statement,” Windhorst said, via Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk.

Paul still has two years left on his current contract, worth around $85M.
