To be exact Paul and Abdel Nader are moving to the Suns for Kelly Oubre, Ricky Rubio, Ty Jerome, Jalen Lecque, and a 2022 first-round pick.
However, both teams would have a hard time completing the trade, unless they would sacrifice key members of their rosters. Οn the contrary, the Suns believe that the duo of Paul and Booker will make Phoenix a factor in the Western Conference.
Ricky Rubio, on the other hand, has also a contract until the summer of 2022 which will pay him a relatively modest $35 million. The 2019 FIBA World Champion with Spain is moving to his fourth NBA team after Minessota, Utah, and Phoenix at the peak of his career.
He is expected to have a dominant role in Oklahoma City, which also lost Dennis Schroder to the Lakers. Last season Rubio tied his career-high average in scoring with 13.1 ppg while dishing 8.9 apg.
