Wooden deck onto of patio stones

Need some input on this one....have a 12x12 pergola that was over a 10x10 hot tub and pad...the pad and area are 18"X18" stones that were placed on 3/4 TB and 1/8 screening....we are moving the tub and reclaiming this as our dining area...question is could i attach 2x6's to the 6x6 posts of the pergola and have the joists resting on the patio stones for support? It was dug down 10 inches and backfilled with the above or would i need to put deck blocks down in place of the patio stones?

No? And yes? Check local codes. They have support blocks that you can place ontop of the pavers.
