The Phoenix Suns have begun setting their post-Paul, who is missing more and more games due to injuries, future and thus identify Charlotte's Terry Rozier, New York's Immanuel Quickley, and Toronto's Fred VanVleet as potential trade targets, according to Marc Stein.

"Chris Paul is back for Phoenix after missing seven games with a hip injury, but the 37-year-old has played in only 27 of the Suns' 48 games this season, having missed 14 games earlier due to a heel injury. Word is that those realities have prompted the Suns to start assessing their post-Paul future," an NBA insider writes.

Paul, a 12-time All-Star and four-time All-NBA First Team member, averages 13.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 8.4 assists per game this season.
