Paul, 35, had a resurgent year for the Thunder, averaging 17.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game during the 2019-20 regular season.
Paul’s play and veteran leadership helped lead the Thunder to the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference.
The Pelicans just missed the playoffs this season, as they struggled mightily in the eight seeding games in the NBA’s Orlando, Fla. bubble.
Adding Paul to a young core could help them take the next step in their rebuild.
Paul began his career in New Orleans when the team was still known as the New Orleans Hornets.
