According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles, Chris Paul has verbally agreed to a contract extension with the Los Angele Clippers to the tune of 5 years, $107 million.
All indications were that Paul would re-sign with the Clippers after they lured Doc Rivers away from the Celtics. Paul representatives also reportedly went as far to tell other teams to “not even bother” pursuing him once Rivers was in the fold.
The deal can’t become official until July 10, but Clippers fans can all finally breathe a sigh of relief.
UPDATE: Chris Paul confirms that he’s “all in”.
I'M IN!!! #CLIPPERNATION
