Chris Paul has reportedly been traded to the Phoenix Suns.

According to Shams Charania, the Oklahoma City Thunder have traded the star point guard to the Suns in return for Ricky Rubio, Kelly Oubre, Ty Jerome, Jalen Lecque and some draft assets. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Charania didn’t specify what the draft value is in the trade for the Thunder.

Damn, Chris Paul sure has been on the move a lot towards the end of his career. The trade to the Thunder really never made sense when he left Houston, and now he’s on the move again.

This time, Paul is headed to the Suns after a single season with the Thunder.

It’s a bit surprising that Paul hasn’t tried to strong arm his way onto a contender. Given how he’s nearing the end of his playing days, you’d think he might go ring hunting.

I’m not sure if he could find a way to the Lakers or somewhere else, but nobody thinks the Suns will be fighting for a title in the near future.

It’s a change of scenery, and we’ll have to see what he does with it.
