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

by February 24, 2012

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.'”
