As the Phoenix Suns are still exploring all their options involving Chris Paul, he made sure to set the record straight in the sense that he wants to still be a Sun.

Paul talked with AZ Central Suns insider Duane Rankin, and Paul told him he would “absolutely” love to return to the Suns next season.

“Absolutely,” Paul said when asked if he wants to stay in Phoenix, per Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic. “That’s why I’m there. I’ve talked with my family, we’ve had conversations about what could be, what might be,” Paul said Thursday of his future. “I’ve talked with my agent. Talked to my brother (C.J. Paul).”

Paul has two years left on his four-year $120 million contract, and the Suns are looking into potential trade options before they way all their options involving the soon-to-be 19-year veteran.

The Suns have been dominant under Paul over the past three seasons. They’ve made a championship appearance, they’ve won a franchise record 64 games, and are 135-59 with him on the floor.
