Chris Paul Confirmed He’ll Pick Up Option With Clippers for 2013

No shocker here, but Chris Paul let it be known that he’ll be sticking around Clipper-Land for at least another season. From SI (via CBS Sports): “When Chris Paul landed in Los Angeles this past December, traded from the New Orleans Hornets to the Clippers in a preseason blockbuster, he had one year left on his contract and a big decision to make about his future. Now, he says, that decision is a done deal — he wants to pick up his option and stay for another season. ‘[The decision] didn’t take long,’ Paul said. ‘It didn’t take long at all. When you go to play somewhere for a season, it always helps to be around good people. Blake Griffin definitely changed the culture around here, and DeAndre Jordan, this is a great group of guys. Not only is basketball going well, but this is a great group of guys.’”
