Oklahoma City trade guard Chris Paul to the Phoenix Suns

The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded point guard Chris Paul to the Phoenix Suns for four players and a first-round draft pick.

The Suns sent Ricky Rubio, Kelly Oubre, Ty Jerome, Jalen Lecque and a first-rounder to Oklahoma City.

The first round pick is protected from the first 12 picks in 2022, the first 10 picks in 2023, the first 8 selections in 2024 and is unprotected in 2025.

Chris Paul averaged 17.6 points, 6.7 assists and 5.0 rebounds in his only season in Oklahoma City.

The Thunder acquired the 10-time All-Star, along with two future first-round picks, after sending Russell Westbrook to Houston Rockets.

The Thunder agreed to trade Dennis Schroder to the Lakers this week for Danny Green and the No 28 pick in Wednesday’s draft.
