The Chris Paul effect is real, wherever he goes, the team gets visibly better. The Suns point guard has a $44,211,146 player option. He can take that option, or the 36-year-old could decline his player option, and accept a 2021-22 salary reduction and secure more total overall compensation.

“Paul has a $44.4 million player option, which according to several sources, he intends to decline with hopes of inking a new multiyear deal (perhaps in the $100 million range over three seasons). It’s unclear if his recent shoulder injury changes his plans.”

If CP3 does optout, Paul would be eligible for a three-year, $140,702,685 deal with the Suns or a three-year, $136,794,277 deal with another team.
Might as well get as much money locked up now. This is probably his last big deal he’s going to get.
