Chris Paul & James Harden (Sporting News)

Chris Paul set to meet with the Clippers, Rockets, Spurs, and Nuggets. According to RealGM, the Clippers are nervous about the meeting with one other team. 

32-year-old Chris Paul is in midst of free agency. The last time Chris Paul was in trade rumors he flew across the United States from New Orleans to Los Angeles in 2011.

On July 1, Paul is set to become a free agent.

Per Real GM:

Chris Paul plans to meet with the Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets in free agency.

The San Antonio Spurs have the Clippers front office “nervous”.

Per GM:

The Clippers have recently become “nervous” about the reports that San Antonio will make a big push to sign Paul.

The Clippers should be worried. The Spurs have the best chance to sell Chris Paul real good. Taking his talents to San Antonio is the ideal spot for Paul to win a championship, as his career almost over it’s time for Paul to chase a ring. He can carry the legacy of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker Spurs ERA. Not only legacy, but he can form a “super team” there. With Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge to supplement him, this team can compete in the West. Going to San Antonio can finally change Paul’s resume of not getting to the Finals, nor the Western Conference Finals.

The last time Chris Paul entered free agency was in 2013, and he signed a five-year $107,343,477 million with the Los Angeles Clippers. His time in Hollywood is coasting away. 

When he signed the five-year deal with the Clippers, he believed that they would be an championship contender. However, Paul set out to be wrong. Since arriving in LA, Paul hasn’t appeared in the Finals nor the WCF. He was one game away from the WCF, but he blew a 3-1 lead to the Houston Rockets.

Paul is 32 years old and his time is near. He wants to win a championship. Staying in LA might hinder his chances of reaching the Finals because of that good old big brother cruising in Golden State. Even before the Warriors had Kevin Durant, the Clippers never stood a chance.

So, taking his talents and joining a big three elsewhere in the West is the ideal situation for Paul to help try to knock down the Monmouth task in Golden State. The Warriors are the only team to beat in the West, and as of the now, the rest of the NBA.
