The Phoenix Suns will pursue Fred VanVleet if they fail to trade for Chris Paul, per Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.

The Suns are in talks with Paul, but if they don’t agree with him, then VanVleet will become their top priority.

“If Chris Paul falls through, Fred VanVleet is a guy Phoenix has interest in depending on how things shake out on the trade market,” Scotto reports.

VanVleet is a free agent this offseason and will be seeking for a lucrative contract. For his part, Paul still has two years left on his contract, worth $85M.
