Chris Paul Verbally Accepts Clips’ Extension

Posted By Sports Talk Florida Rumors On July 1, 2013 @ 3:28 PM In NBA,News and Rumors | No Comments

Chris Paul has verbally agreed to a five-year, $107 million contract extension to remain with the Los Angeles Clippers, his agent, Leon Rose, confirmed to ESPNLosAngeles.com on Monday morning.

Paul can’t sign his new contract until July 10 but could agree to terms as of 12:01 a.m. ET.

“I’m in. ClipperNation,” Paul tweeted.

Paul always intended to stay with the Clippers, sources said, and that sentiment was only strengthened when the team tabbed Doc Rivers as head coach and senior vice president of basketball operations earlier this week.

Sources have said Paul at least entertained the thought of going to the Atlanta Hawks with Dwight Howard, who also will enter free agency.
