According to Brian Sampson of Forbes, the Milwaukee Bucks, who are 1st in the Central Division with a 18-3 record, could eye the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Chris Paul as their potential trade target:

“One of the most polarizing trade candidates available, Chris Paul would have Bucks’ fans all in their feelings if an agreement was struck. … Ownership would also have to be okay with going into the luxury tax-something fans are skeptical about. On the court, the fit would be pretty good. Despite his advanced age, Paul would stabilize the point guard position.

It’s a coin flip to decide who’s better, but he doesn’t go through the extreme highs and lows Bledsoe does. Paul loves to have the ball in his hands, but he showed in Houston he can play second fiddle when necessary. His outside shooting and defense are on par with what the Bucks want.”

This season, Paul is averaging 15.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.7 steals, and 5.7 assists per game, while shooting at 45.6% from the field.
