Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul is one of the players widely expected to be on the move this offseason, as the Thunder embrace a rebuild.

There will of course be the predictable suitors, such as the Miami Heat or the Milwaukee Bucks, but Paul’s veteran experience could help several teams.

Paul may end up in a big market, as he has in Los Angeles and Houston in the past. Or he could end up in a surprising situation, as he did in Oklahoma City.

Let’s take a look at four dark horse teams that could swing a trade for Paul.
