The Spurs are "exploring the feasibility" of making a free-agent run at Chris Paul, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
It's not going to be easy for the Spurs to keep Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge as two of their big three. If they do make a run at CP3, it likely means they'll have a really tough time bringing back Jonathon Simmons and some of their other veterans. The Clippers are still considered as the heavy favorite to bring CP3 back, but this will be a story to watch. May 26 - 10:28 PM

The Clippers take the threat of the Spurs pursuit of Chris Paul "very seriously," according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

It is important to note that the Spurs won't have the requisite cap space to make Paul a comparable offer unless they can clear some salaries off the books. Also, assuming the Clippers are willing to offer him a max contract, it's hard to imagine CP3 leaving $200 million in guaranteed money on the table. Nonetheless, Paul joining the Spurs would make San Antonio a legit threat to the Warriors out West, and give CP3 his best chance at experiencing postseason success.

Zach Lowe of ESPN stated during a recent podcast that he believes the Spurs could be a legitimate option for Chris Paul as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

"There's been a lot of rumblings about Paul, and I think that's real," Lowe said of CP3 potentially joining the Spurs as a free agent. "I think there's mutual interest there. I don't know how real it is given the Clippers can offer a gigantic amount of money and are also a really good team; and the Spurs, like I said, have no sort of cap flexibility to get there. I'm very curious about what they do this summer and who's on the team next year." If Paul wants to chase a ring, his best shot of realizing that goal may be in San Antonio, but he'd have to take a pay cut to make it work.

According to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times, the Clippers are hoping to re-sign Chris Paul to a maximum deal.

CP3 is fully expected to decline his $24.2 million player option for 2017-18 in order to test free agency. He has plenty of incentive to remain in Los Angeles, as he could get a five-year deal worth about $205 million with the Clippers compared to a four-year deal worth about $152 million for any other team. Chris Paul will turn 32 this month, but he averaged 18.1 points, 9.2 dimes, 5.0 boards, 2.0 triples, 1.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers this season and returned top-10 value in standard fantasy leagues.
May 1 - 11:46 AM

Chris Paul was held to just 13 points on 6-of-19 shooting during Sunday's Game 7 loss, adding four boards, one 3-pointer, nine assists and three turnovers in 40 minutes.

Paul did everything he possibly could to try and give his Clippers a Game 7 win, but ultimately, it was not enough. CP3 did see a minor dip in his numbers during his age-31 season with averages of 18.1 points, 9.2 dimes, 5.0 boards, 2.0 triples, 1.9 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game on 47.6 percent shooting, but that was still good enough for top-10 value in standard 9-cat leagues. He'll likely opt out of his contract this summer, and after another first-round exit, it'll be interesting to see if he stays committed to remaining in Los Angeles.
Apr 30 - 6:27 PM

Chris Paul put his team on his back during a 98-93 Game 6 win in Utah on Friday, scoring 29 points with three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

The Clippers had a 10-point lead with less than 90 seconds left, but of course the Clippers made it exciting late to have this game come down to a missed Joe Johnson shot with three seconds left. Paul himself summed it up perfectly after the game. "It wouldn't be us if it wasn't dramatic," Paul said on the ESPN broadcast. The Clippers are 3-1 in Game 7 matchups since 2012, but anything is possible for this one, especially with a 12:30 PDT start.
Apr 29 - 1:58 AM

Chris Paul's 28 points weren't enough in Tuesday's 96-92 Game 5 defeat, as the Clippers fell to 2-3 against the Jazz.

He has a lot on his plate with Blake Griffin (toe) out for the playoffs, but his impressive fourth quarter effort wasn't enough -- he scored 15 of his 28 points in the fourth and sparked an 11-0 run at the beginning of that quarter. CP3 finished 10-of-19 from the field in 38 minutes with nine assists, four rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers, but the Clippers will need even more magic from him if they hope to avoid elimination on Friday for Game 6 in Utah.
Apr 26 - 1:44 AM

Chris Paul did it all during Sunday's tough Game 4 defeat, posting 27 points, 12 assists, nine rebound, one steal, one 3-pointer and just two turnovers in 38 minutes.

The Clippers need CP3 to be extra aggressive with Blake Griffin (toe) done for the postseason, and he obliged tonight with 10-of-21 FGs and 6-of-8 FTs. He was particularly effective in pick-and-roll sets, for which Utah had few answers, and Jazz coach Quin Snyder is sure to throw new wrinkles at him in Game 5. Paul has seen it all, of course, so we're anticipating another big game from the future Hall-of-Famer on Tuesday.
Apr 24 - 12:11 AM

Chris Paul carried the Clippers to a comeback 111-106 win in Utah on Friday, scoring 34 points with seven rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

No Blake Griffin in the second half, no problem. The Clippers overcame a 14-point deficit for their largest road comeback since 2012, and CP3's 24 points in the second half were a big reason why -- also had seven rebounds in the second half. Even if BG has to miss time, the Clippers may be OK with CP3 at the helm and getting more shots. He also passed Wilt Chamberlain for 30th on the all-time playoffs assists list. The Clippers will take their 2-1 lead to Utah again for Sunday's Game 4.
Apr 22 - 1:16 AM

Chris Paul hit 9-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, a block and five turnovers in Tuesday's 99-91 Game 2 win against the Jazz.

As well as CP3, DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin all played, it's interesting that the Clippers didn't win by more points. It's also interesting that this series is tied 1-1 and heading to Utah for the next two games, starting on Friday night. Paul was great tonight, despite the TOs, and we get the feeling he's simply going to will the Clippers to win this series. But if that's going to happen the Clippers will likely need to take either Game 3 or 4 in Utah. Paul is now tied with LeBron James for the second most playoff games with at least 20 points, 10 dimes and three steals with 10 of them.
Apr 19 - 1:35 AM

Chris Paul scored 25 points during a 97-95 Game 1 loss to the Jazz on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

What a tough loss at home and this one isn't on Paul. CP3 kept the Clippers in this game with 10 consecutive Clippers points, but he just didn't get much help from the other stars. His 10 assists in the first half were the most he's handed out in any postseason half of his career, but he turned into a scorer late. Paul is coming in red hot over his previous seven, averaging 23.1 points, 4.7 boards, 10.3 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.9 treys. He's going to be asked to do a ton against the Jazz, so it's fair to expect even bigger games than this one especially if Rudy Gobert (knee) is out.
Apr 16 - 1:16 AM

Chris Paul scored 18 points during a 115-95 win over the Kings on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, nine assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

This win locked up the No. 4 seed to give the Clippers homecourt advantage against the Jazz. As most point guards do, CP3 didn't fare well against the Jazz, averaging 18.7 points, 4.0 boards, 7.0 assists and 2.3 turnovers. Paul could not finish the playoffs last year due to injury, so he'll have a little extra edge this time around. Expect him to score in the mid-20s with plenty of other stats to go with it.
Apr 13 - 1:11 AM

Chris Paul finished with 19 points, nine assists, five rebounds and four steals over 29 minutes in Monday's 125-96 blowout victory over the Rockets.

CP3 will play in Wednesday's regular-season finale, but fantasy owners should be scoreboard watching. The Clips and Jazz are tied for the 4-seed heading into Wednesday's game. Utah plays at 9pm ET in San Antonio, so Paul could potentially be rested in the second half if the Jazz lose earlier in the evening. That's good news for the likes of Jamal Crawford, especially as a speculative pick in DFS.
Apr 11 - 1:37 AM

Chris Paul scored 19 points (9-of-16 FGs) with eight rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and one triple in Saturday's 98-87 win over the Spurs.

With tonight's win, Doc Rivers ties Mike Dunleavy (215) for the most regular season coaching victories in Clippers franchise history, and the Clippers have won their season series vs. Spurs for the 4th time in team history. The Clippers have the same record as the Jazz with two games to go, but they hold the tiebreaker with a 3-1 advantage over them in the regular season. The No. 4 seed is theirs to lose.
Apr 9 - 12:06 AM

Chris Paul scored 29 points in Saturday's easy 115-104 win over the Lakers.

CP3 has scored 27+ points in three straight games and hasn't missed a contest since he returned from his thumb injury on Feb. 24. Most head-to-head fantasy leagues end this weekend, but if your league runs through the end of the regular season, the bad news for CP3's owners is that the Clippers only play twice next week. He finished 9-of-14 from the field and a perfect 10-of-10 from the line, adding 12 assists, four rebounds, one steal, one triple and six turnovers.
