Not the most appealing location compared to Miami and LA but playing with Towns and with the opportunity to revive a long dead franchise. He is also very close to Okogie who he managed on his AAU team, he'd be great next to Culver. If OKC can somehow throw Galo into the deal, a Galo+Covington+Towns front court immediately gets him contending. I'll do it if I was Paul.
Paul doesn't have a no trade I am sure they will try and move him to his preferred destination but they are also going to take the best deal
Of course OKC will do what is best in their interest but no team will trade for a 34 years old overpaid Chris Paul if he doesn't want to play for them.
OKC will need to play this carefully. Paul still has a lot of influence around the league more than we know of. NBA is a circle, if you don't have to piss off one more person, you don't have to do it. I think sure OKC will find a place for Paul, whether a team he wants to go, or a team set up for some sort of contending.
Re your earlier mention of Okogie - yeah, with Culver, he is dispensable.
