Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers fell short of their postseason goals once again this spring, but is it already time for Paul to look for his championship elsewhere?
Reports surfaced on Wednesday that there’s “mutual interest” between Paul and the San Antonio Spurs, a rumor that surprised many in the basketball community. Initial reports before the Clippers lost to Utah this postseason indicated that Paul would sign an extension with the Clippers. But who knows how much has changed since then?
ESPN’s Zach Lowe said on his podcast, The Lowe Report, Wednesday that the talk of Paul moving to San Antonio is legit.
“There’s been a lot of rumblings about Chris Paul, and I think that’s real,” Lowe said. “I think there’s mutual interest there. I don’t know how real it is given the Clippers can offer a gigantic amount of money and are also a really good team; and the Spurs, like I said, have no sort of cap flexibility to get there. I’m very curious about what they do this summer and who’s on the team next year.”
