Phoenix Suns All-Star guard Chris Paul has agreed to stay on a new four-year deal that could be worth as much as $120 million, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

Paul, 36, was traded to the Suns in November. He logged 18.3 points, 9.4 assists, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per Regular Season game. He went on with 19.2 points, 8.6 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per playoffs tilt helping his side make it to the NBA Finals.

Paul decided to decline his option for the 2021-22 season and become a free agent, but only to sign a longer contract with his current team.

As team owner Robert Sarver said as a guest in Arizona Sports’ Burns & Gambo on Wednesday: “I had some discussions with him after the season and said, ‘You’ve only been a part of the organization for nine months so there’s really not a lot of history here, but from a team perspective, it was my best season in 17 years and it was your best season in 16 years.’ So there’s really a lot there to keep the two of us together”.
