Ok Clippers fans, you can exhale. Chris Paul is staying in Los Angeles.
According to ESPN.com, the NBA star’s reps have told teams to not even bother reaching out to him when free agency begins Monday (July 1), because he’s re-signing with the Clips.
Analysts say that the addition of coach Doc Rivers earlier this week sealed the deal with Paul, who wanted to stay in Los Angeles anyway.
However, the word was that he would’ve entertained the thought of going to the Atlanta Hawks with Dwight Howard, who also will enter free agency.
