Chris Paul could become a free agent this offseason if he declines his 21-22 player option with the Phoenix Suns. Paul could also do an extension beyond the 21-22 season.

"It certainly seems to me it's hard to see him go somewhere else," said Adrian Wojnarowski.

"He wanted to be there. He had to convince Phoenix a little bit that they were ready for him."

Wojnarowski also mentioned that the New York Knicks could be a "leverage point" for Paul in any potential negotiations with the Suns. The Knicks are run by Paul's former agent Leon Rose and they both have cap space and a need for point guard.
