Chris Paul News
Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul is reportedly drawing interest from the Lakers heading into the 2021-22 campaign. The veteran, who could decline a $44.2 million player option to become a free agent, arguably had his best season to date, finishing with 16.4 points, 8.9 assists, and 1.4 steals while shooting nearly 40 percent from deep to lead the Suns to the NBA Finals. While a sign-and-trade deal involving Dennis Schroder, Kyle Kuzma, and Talen Horton-Tucker could be the most likely scenario necessitated to acquire Paul's services, there is still a good chance he remains with his current team. Depending on where the 36-year-old ends up, he could see a decrease on the scoring end. However, he is expected to remain an elite fantasy option as long as managers acknowledge the risk of injury is higher than others.
Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul (hand) denied reports that he is injured. "I'm fine," reported Paul, who suffered a right-hand injury during the Western Conference Finals. Although the veteran has balked at questions regarding a potential ailment, his recent play hasn't supported the concept, recently scoring just 10 points during the Game 4 loss to Milwaukee while also averaging five turnovers throughout his last three contests. As a result, fantasy managers partaking in single-game contests may want to think twice before inserting him into a DFS lineup.
Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul has reportedly been telling those close to him that he plans to opt-out at the end of the season, whenever that may be. The 36-year-old is rumored to forgo his $44 million player option and inquire about a two-year contract, whether it be in Phoenix or elsewhere. Paul has enjoyed a career resurgence during his lone season with the Suns, averaging 16.4 points, 8.9 assists, and 1.4 steals while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field. As a result, he is expected to draw plenty of interest from teams throughout the league, primarily due to the limited amount of quality players in the upcoming free agency class.
Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul remains out for Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. Despite being vaccinated, the veteran recently tested positive for COVID-19. While Paul is currently showing no symptoms, he will need to clear health and safety protocols before returning to the floor for Game 3. Until then, Cameron Payne should continue to start in his place, with the 26-year-old recording 11 points and nine assists throughout 29 minutes during the Game 1 win. Cameron Johnson, who had 12 points across 24 minutes of work in that one, should also be on the DFS radar as a value option. However, if Payne remains out of foul trouble in Game 2, Johnson's fantasy outlook isn't as bright.
