Whatever CP3 does, it has to be in his own best interest and in the interest of the other players he represents with the players union. Taking a longer deal, for less per year but more guaranteed, is a lucrative deal. I don't think the Suns would have a problem coming up with an offer that beats anyone else. The problem would be if there are other factors that would mitigate. He bought a house in Encino CA last May. I do believe that is where his family is living now. He sold a house in Houston in January for 11 million. Maybe he will buy a house in Phoenix, maybe he already has. If he has, it hasnt hit the news yet. So. Going back to LA could be an option to be home. But I cannot see him going back to the Clippers, and I do not see him fitting well (personality wise) with LeBron. The Suns would probably offer him the most lucrative deal. So being the President of the NBPA works in the Suns favor. He would not be as likely to take less money for convenience or competition because of his role with the union. Also, was doing a little research. The NBPA is incorporated in NY as a non-profit. I kinda expected that. But also, the NBA itself is also incorporated in NY as a non-profit. You lawyer types probably understand that better than me. I am sure each team is also incorporated separately as a for-profit company, but the league office is rolling in the dough I assume.
