Is 'CP3' Phoenix Bound?
via: NBA. 

The NBA season is right around the corner, and teams are already looking for pieces to add in order to get better for the shortened 72-game campaign.

One of those teams wanting to get better are the Phoenix Suns, who have reportedly discussed acquiring Chris Paul from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Tim Bontemps reported that talks between both teams have been ongoing and continued to gather traction, but there is no deal imminent.

Phoenix made a lot of noise at the NBA 'bubble' in Orlando, going 8-0 led by a great young core of Devin Booker and DeAndre Ayton. Despite their great run, they still weren't able to make the 'play-in game' in the Western Conference.

'CP3' ain't new to the system run by Phoenix coach, Monty Williams, as he played a season under him in New Orleans from 2010 to 2011.

Paul, who is coming off a season in which he averaged 17.6 points and 6.7 assists, still has two years and $85.5 million left on his contract. The veteran guard was also named an All-Star for the first time since 2016 and featured in the All-NBA second team. 

'Woj' also reported the Thunder have also told teams they remain interested in keeping Paul for next season.
