No doubt, the man will be a free agent after this game tonight.

IF he leaves L.A. he will go to Atlanta or Dallas imo.  Darkhorse would be Houston if they could move Lin.  That said, he isn't leaving L.A. imo...

Did you watch the series and game last night?
He's done. Clippers are going to rebuild that team. HC will be gone also.

They were talking about how theres been talk about a KG/Pierce package deal to LA for maybe Jordan and a couple guys. CP3 may resign if that happens, but from what I've seen in this series, he's done. The man ain't coming back. Two straight seasons that they failed to be competitive in the playoffs.

CP3's future might still be in LA, what if we the Lakers decide to grab him instead of extending an offer to Dwight Howard?

 

I mean, I'd rather have CP3 than Howard after how the guy has handled himself over the past two seasons. Howard quit on the Magic, and then quit on the Lakers during the play offs. He should be shown the door, and if CP3 doesn't re-sign, they should grab him if they have the space. 

 

If not there then I think the Rockets should try and make a big play for him. They could try a sign and trade deal including Lin to the Clippers, which might appeal to the Clippers by giving them a relatively young PG in Lin. A pairing of CP3 and Harden could be a scary prospect if they gel into a cohesive partnership.

CP3 may resign if that happens, but from what I've seen in this series, he's done. The man ain't coming back. Two straight seasons that they failed to be competitive in the playoffs.

If the Clippers did grab Garnett and Pierce, then CP3 could very well sign a new contract. Garnett is a big improvement on Jordan, and Pierce gives them an experience small forward. Factor in Blake Griffin at PF and whoever they pick at SG could be a very competitive team. 

Personally I wouldn't rule out him re-signing even if they do not grab Garnett and Pierce. This team has just won their first division title, and sure they haven't done great in the play offs, but they are still a team trying to build themselves into a legitimate contender. It was never going to happen in a season or two. If they re-sign CP3 to partner with Blake, then they need to go out into free agency and grab another star player, or borderline all star player to help them out, and surround them with good role players.
 

He may very well leave, but I think the Clippers have a good chance to retain him if they show the right ambition in the off season to bring in the right players to help them.

There's at least a 30 percent chance that if Chris Paul had to simply list all the teams in the NBA, he would forget the Bobcats.

Good player, but I'm not so sure I'd want to build around him.  In addition, he whines a ton, frustrating to watch him and Griffin hound the referee constantly.  Makes it hard for me to like him.

CP3 will not come to Charlotte. He is in the "Lebron James circle of friends." Those guys will forever be teaming up in big markets to try to win championships the easy way. Besides that he's a little baby. Any time he doesn't get a call he's in the refs face and he flops every other play. No thanks to him.

What part of Pierce and Garnett would make Paul want to resign with LA?  They're 35 and 36 respectively and decidedly on the down side of their careers and they just proved they don't have what it takes to hang with the Knicks now, much less at any point in the future.

 

My money would be on him leaving LA for whichever of the Dwight Howard candidates that can't land him.

They already have Hortford, and would still have money to sign another max player with CP3. Makes a lot of sense actually...

Kemba has the PG position locked down.  CP3 knows better than to come here.
