Chris Paul has a player option over his last year of contract with Clippers, but everyone knows he will not make it effective. It will become the base in one of the most attractive free agents of the summer market and will not be few the teams that are interested by him.
To date we knew two great candidates. One, his current team, Los Angeles Clippers, where he has been playing for 6 years. Another, San Antonio Spurs, a rumor that has put very nervous to the Angelinos by the potential of the Texan franchise and because it has been spoken of serious interest of the base to go to Spurs.
Now two other candidates come to the fore to get hold of Paul. These are Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets.
According to Broderick Turner, of the Los Angeles Times, Paul will meet in the free agency with Clippers, Spurs, Rockets and Nuggets. All of them, Western Conference teams. And there could be more teams.
Paul could charge a contract maximum of $ 205 million for 5 years with Clippers and $ 152 million for 4 seasons with the rest of the NBA teams.
The 9-time All-Star spent 6 years in New Orleans and another 6 in Los Angeles with the Clippers, will their 6-year cycles and will change destination? It will, of course, be one of the most interesting questions to elucidate in the summer market.
