Cavaliers playing Warriors in NBA Finals again sets record

Frederick Owens | 28 May, 2017, 03:26

Paul has been linked with the Spurs since the Los Angeles Clippers suffered yet another first-round defeat in the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

"I think that they deserve a chance to win", Rivers said to the Orange County Register earlier in May.

"The knock on Chris Paul is that he wears on his teammates for demanding so much, for paying such close attention to every detail and expecting everyone else to do the same".

Chris Paul could form an imposing "big three" with the Spurs' Kawhi Leonard, left, and LaMarcus Aldridge.

With their limited salary cap space, the Spurs will not be able to accommodate Paul unless he lowers his contract demand. But it would be very reasonable for San Antonio, which finished six games behind Golden State in the regular season before getting swept in the playoffs, to conclude that it needs to add more firepower.

Sources say the LA Clippers, meanwhile, regard the threat of San Antonio signing away Paul as a legitimate concern, even though the Spurs, at present, have virtually no salary-cap flexibility. The Spurs must get creative with the cap if they're going to become his ultimate landing spot, though. If Paul is serious about joining San Antonio then Mills will likely be a roster casualty. At 32, Paul is eligible for a five-year deal worth an estimated $205 million from Clippers owner Steve Ballmer this summer, thanks in part to rule changes in the NBA's new labor pact that are more favorable to stars in Paul's age bracket. He's a nine-time All-Star, a future Hall of Famer and, by some measures, one of the best point guards of all time.

Being a restricted free agent, the Spurs can match offers to Simmons.

Offering a max deal to Caldwell-Pope and/or Porter would put the Pistons and Wizards in a tough position given their current salary cap situation.

Paul averaged 18.1 points, 9.2 assists and 5.0 rebounds in 61 regular-season games this season. It's also been reported that both sides have mutual interest. The Clippers and Spurs could agree to a sign-and-trade deal, allowing Paul to accept a maximum deal from the Clippers, but still make his way out of the city of Los Angeles.

When he hits the open market on July 1, this decision will be a real one for Paul. Paul has never been out of the second round in his career, while San Antonio has been to the conference finals four times since Paul joined Los Angeles for the 2011-2012 season.
