Chris Paul

  1. Three team trade sends Redick to Clippers, Bledsoe to Suns, picks to Bucks

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    The Clippers needed a few things to become serious title contenders in the West. One was a more consistent defense, Doc Rivers has to help handle that (and mature DeAndre Jordan’s game). They also needed a two guard and wings who could stretch the floor — you can check that off the list. This is…

  2. Jose Calderon meeting with Kings, one of many suitors

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Looks more like football as Toronto Raptors' Calderon races Sacramento Kings' Robinson up the court in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    When the Pistons traded for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract, they immediately stressed they didn’t view him as a one-year rental. After years of subpar point guard play since they traded Chauncey Billups, Calderon brought playmaking skills to the position Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey couldn’t come close to matching. But Calderon and Andre…

  3. Clippers to meet with O.J. Mayo, Carl Landry on Tuesday

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo, Patrick Patterson

    The Clippers re-signing of Chris Paul to a max contract in free agency this summer was only the beginning of their plans to add talent and tweak the roster so that it’s more immediately ready to compete for a championship under new head coach Doc Rivers. The decision of whether or not to trade reserve…

  4. Report: if Rockets don’t land Howard they may chase Josh Smith

    Jul 2, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    UPDATE 5:01 pm: Talking on Houston Radio today, they said this may not be a plan to have a fallback for Dwight Howard so much as to unite Howard and Smith — offer the Hawks a sign-and-trade with Omer Asik and other pieces or contracts the Rockets want to unload. The Hawks might take that.…

  5. Reports: Eric Bledsoe trade rumors include Redick, Mayo

    Jul 1, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    We told you once Chris Paul said he was in for next season the Clippers would get serious about moving Eric Bledsoe. And Chris Paul says he is all in with the Clips. So expect new trade rumors for Bledsoe to start popping up, such as this one from Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles:…

  6. Chris Paul confirms he’s “all in” with Clippers

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I'M IN!!! #CLIPPERNATION— Chris Paul (@CP3) July 01, 2013 He’s made it official. Well, technically Chris Paul can’t put ink to paper until July 10, but we all knew he was going to stay with the Clippers and he tweeted this out Monday morning to confirm it. This will be a five-year, $107 million deal,…

  7. Brandan Wright poised to get substantially bigger contract

    Jul 1, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Bradnon Wright

    Just 14 players have ranked in the top 25 for PER in each of the last two seasons: LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Al Jefferson, LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kobe Bryant, Brandan Wright, Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry. The 13 highest-paid members of that group, even…

  8. One dozen NBA free agents to watch (not named Howard or Paul)

    Jul 1, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Chris Paul is going to stay a Clipper. Dwight Howard is going to do whatever it is Dwight Howard is going to do. But those two are not the only guys who became free agents at the stroke of midnight and we ventured into Monday. Here are a dozen other newly minted free agents worth…

  9. Report: Chris Paul will accept Clippers five-year, $107 million offer

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:37 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    There isn’t a lot of negotiating to do here: Chris Paul is a clear max contract player, the Clippers wanted to keep him and he wanted to stay with the Clippers. So while nothing is formal an official yet, we have confirmation of what we already knew — Chris Paul and the Clippers will aggree…

  10. No surprise, Chris Paul’s reps inform teams he’ll re-sign with Clippers

    Jun 30, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    As free agency in the NBA gets set to open at midnight Eastern, one of the top names has taken himself off the market — not that it comes as any surprise. Chris Paul will re-sign with the Clippers, according to a report from Chris Broussard of ESPN.com. Paul’s representatives have told teams “not to…

  11. Report: Raptors also talking to Clippers about Eric Bledsoe

    Jun 29, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    DeMar DeRozan

    Once Chris Paul formally signs on the dotted line, it will not be long before Eric Bledsoe is moved. While Doc Rivers may wonder what a CP3/Bledsoe backcourt looks like, there are other holes on this roster and Bledsoe is a key trade piece to fill one. We know the Clippers are talking to the…

  12. Doc Rivers talks exit from Celtics, Rondo, new look Nets (VIDEO)

    Jun 28, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Doc Rivers

    It became one of the talking points of the NBA Draft broadcast — ESPN’s Bill Simmons (a Celtics fan) said Doc Rivers quit on Boston, so when Rivers was asked about that on the broadcast his response was, “I would like to call him an idiot but I’m too classy for that.” Rivers was on…

  13. Are the Brooklyn Nets contenders now? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

    Jun 28, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Former NBA basketball player Kidd poses for photographers with Brooklyn Nets player Williams at a news conference in Brooklyn

    Thanks to a blockbuster trade with Boston, next season the Brooklyn Nets will start Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. They will bring Jason Terry off the bench. They will start five former All-Stars and bring a former Sixth Man of the Year off the bench. So can we say…

  14. Danny Ainge isn’t going to coach Celtics, clearly didn’t like Doc leaving

    Jun 25, 2013, 11:31 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    Danny Ainge didn’t sound like a happy man. It’s not anything he said directly, just the overall tone of his discussion with the media on Tuesday (which was streamed live) left the impression he thought Doc Rivers would be back to coach the Celtics this year. “We sent him a letter saying that we expected…

  15. Report: Eric Bledsoe for Arron Afflalo trade talks heating up

    Jun 25, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    Of all the multitude of trade rumors around Eric Bledsoe, one stood out as making the most sense — Bledsoe to the Magic for Arron Afflalo. That trade talk appears to be picking up steam as we head toward the draft, according to a tag team report at ESPN. The Orlando Magic and Los Angeles…

  16. It’s official: Doc Rivers signs contract with Clippers

    Jun 25, 2013, 7:38 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    UPDATE 7:38 pm: The Celtics and Clippers have both confirmed that Doc Rivers has signed to coach the Clippers, this is done. One interesting side note on the compensation package deal — it specifies the two teams cannot trade players until after next season, not with a third team or in any other combination. There…

  17. Doc Rivers may run basketball operations for Clippers in addition to becoming team’s head coach

    Jun 24, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Monday was supposed to be the day that the NBA approved the deal between the Celtics and Clippers that would allow Doc Rivers to coach in Los Angeles next season. It hasn’t happened yet, but it isn’t because of a holdup on the league’s part. The deal has yet to be finalized and sent for…

  18. NBA wronging Kevin Garnett by preventing Celtics-Clippers trade

    Jun 24, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    Kevin Garnett worked hard, played well and won big. That earned him a no-trade clause written into his contract, a rare privilege extended currently only to Garnett, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki. David Stern has, in effect, taken it away from Garnett. The Clippers tried to trade for Garnett at the trade deadline,…

  19. It’s done: Clippers reach agreement with Celtics on a deal to hire Doc Rivers as head coach

    Jun 23, 2013, 6:38 PM EDT

    Jun 23, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    The on-again, off-again talks between the Clippers and the Celtics to free Doc Rivers from his contract in Boston so he can coach in Los Angeles are back, and this time the teams appear to be closer than ever on making it happen. Whether or not the league will allow it is another question entirely,…

  21. Pelicans taking No. 13 pick, Shawn Marion off Mavericks’ hands?

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Hornets Mavericks Basketball

    The Mavericks have been shopping the No. 13 pick to clear cap space, and maybe they’ve found a taker who will also accept the final year of Shawn Marion’s contract, which owes him $9,316,796. Fletcher Mackel of WDSU TV: REPORT don't be surprised if Pelicans acquire 13th pk from Mavs, select Giannis Adetokunbo. NOLA also…

  22. Clippers talk contract with Byron Scott and Brian Shaw

    Jun 22, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Byron Scott

    Maybe this is part of an elaborate bluff or misdirection or… Maybe the Clippers are just moving on from Doc Rivers. Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times: Clippers actually talked contract with Byron Scott after meeting with Sterling Tuesday night; Clips also talked contract with BShaw also— Brad Turner (@BA_Turner) June 22, 2013 BShaw…

  23. Report: Chris Paul unhappy after Doc Rivers-to-Clippers fails to materialize

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Chris Paul didn’t like Clippers owner Donald Sterling insinuating Paul had Vinny Del Negro had fired. Then Paul asked the Clippers to acquire Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett, which probably isn’t happening (though I won’t rule it out until the Clippers hire a coach or Rivers directly announces his intentions to coach Boston next season). How…

  24. Report: Doc Rivers to “no longer pursue” effort to become Clippers coach

    Jun 21, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    Looks like Doc Rivers will not be coaching the Los Angeles Clippers next season. The on-again-off-again negotiations between the Clippers and Celtics are off again, and Rivers wants off the roller coaster as Boston officials feel there is no deal to be made, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. After talks failed again on Friday,…

  25. Celtics plan Doc Rivers press conference, call it off. What does that mean? Who knows.

    Jun 21, 2013, 1:52 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge Doc Rivers

    At this point, the Celtics might as well invite the Ringling Brothers into this process, because their talks with the Clippers are already a circus. Here is what we do know: • The Clippers still want to do a deal with Boston that would pass muster with the league, something where the Clippers send picks…
