Chris Paul is a free agent next season (Blake Griffin, too) and he will decide about his future with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Los Angeles Clippers are a legitimate title contender and they must pay whatever it takes to keep Chris Paul in L.A.

Zach Lowe of ESPN:

The team expects Paul to demand the full five-year max (or whatever the longest possible deal ends up being in the revised collective bargaining agreement) to stick around, per several league sources.

A five-year max contract – projected to be worth about $195 million (or maybe more in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement) – would take Paul into age 37. As he declines, that deal could become a liability.

Steve Ballmer recently said that the Clippers will try to keep Chris Paul and Blake Griffin next summer.

Chris Paul is one of the best point guards in the league but he never played in the Western Conference Finals. They have 16-7 and last night they lost against Golden State Warriors 115-98.

It will be very interesting summer for Los Angeles Clippers. Chris Paul is a free agent, Blake Griffin is a free agent, and they will probably offer them max contracts, but the real question is - where Chris Paul wants to play next season?
