PLAYA VISTA, Calif. -- When Chris Paul left the Los Angeles Clippers' training facility on Saturday, he was uncertain about his future with the team. On Monday, Clippers vice president of basketball operations Gary Sacks said he was "very confident" the All-Star point guard would eventually re-sign with the team. Sacks met with Paul on Saturday during the team's exit interview and believes that he will be back, but was cautious about getting into details with Paul becoming an unrestricted free agent and not being able to sign an extension until July 1.

That's nice and all, but doesn't mean a whole lot. Its exactly what I would expect him to say. Hopefully, there's good reason behind his confidence and this will be behind us by July 2.

I think one of the key paragraphs was the one that said:

Sacks said he would indeed meet with Paul, Griffin and others before deciding on who will be the team's next head coach.

Im nervous. I really want them to move on these talks quick. I dont want a potential coach getting nabbed by someone else

Maybe they want to make an offer to the MEM coach but have to wait until he is toast,,,the thing is if you cannot talk to CP3 until July, how can you have his input and help to pick your coach before then,

not sure if this was mentioned or not but the whole team went to dinner tonight for chris pauls birthday and even all their girls came along as well. i just dont see chris leaving LA there is too much chemistry to ruin. it's so obvious that his wife Jada loves it here too. my friend lives right next to chris paul and he left him a letter on his front door wishing him a happy birthday and that he hopes he remains a clipper.

That's cool to hear. I know that Chemistry goes a long way. Must be nice to be your friend to be able to live that close to CP3 and being able to drop a letter off at his front door Very Happy

Isn't Chris Paul a member of the Clippers until July 1 when he can file for free agency? So for now, he's still a Clipper and can meet with the front office about things. Isn't that how it works?

It might be a while then. Even though OKC is up on Memphis 1-0 that game was decided by free throws. I have no doubt that Memphis will take their home games and drag that series out

those are mostly idiotic lakers fans who still dont understand how the salary cap works. I heard on the radio, one guy said that if the howard doesnt return to the lakers then cp3 will be available for them to sign. Ummm No! kobe and gasol already takes up 50 million of your salary!

I thought I heard on the radio ,maybe last week, that because of his salary and the taxes, Kobe alone is costing 50 million for next season

I think you heard wrong. My understanding is that he will cost 50million in tax alone. Kobe costs the Lakers 80million next year in salary and tax lol.

Lob City got CP3 his State Farm gig. He wouldn't have gotten it with LAL. Remember my rant about BG and CP3 getting commercials? It's called Lob City. BG made him millions. Can D12?

If LAL amnesties Pau and Kobe retires and D12 stays the Lakers MAY make sense. Where else can he go?

I think part of that stems from our first round exit. Perhaps a lot of fans think that the first round defeat was dreadful and maybe that Paul is looing to bolt because of such a bad showing. Althouhg, theres no truth to that its what people are thinking
