Similar as far as production goes but Russel does try each night. He's just not very effective or efficient. I need to look up and see how he did in Golden State before I'd say no because he'd be in a similar role here. He would be ok as a 3rd tier star of sorts, hes not a legit star but he was an All-Star in Brooklyn a few years back and he was big for LA this year in a 3rd option role as well.
The more I think about it and the more I'd do it because he can probably be flipped again, like he was for Wiggins, and that might not be a bad move since I can almost guarantee he'll have more value than CP3 will in a year given how cash strapped the Suns are. I don't want to be in the position of deciding what to do with Paul again next off-season, although waiting him then makes a lot sense considering only like $1-2 million of his deal is guaranteed, which is essentially nothing.
