And according to CBS, BOS offer was Rondo, 2 1st round picks and Green in a S&T for a non-extended Paul. 2 pretty good offers.

I'd do that trade if I was NO and Paul wasn't about leave. That's a ridiculous trade.

Yeah. Sounds fishy.

Yeah, seems like a lot.
Paul and Howard control where they ultimately end up. Boston is not trading Rondo for a 1 year rental, and the same goes for whoever the Clippers offer.

Why won't Paul or Howard sign a long-term contract with Boston or Clippers?

You'd have to ask them. But Paul's already shot down the idea. If I had to speculate, Boston doesn't have the greatest reputation amongst black players, and that's been true for years and years. Plus, it's freezing cold for a good part of the year, and isn't the "big time" the way that New York is. (which is also freezing)

I don't think either has explicitly shot down the idea of the Clippers, but they both come from organizations that badly mismanaged teams that had the potential to be pretty darn good for a while. Can they trust that Donald Sterling won't do the same?
Laker fans world wide baby.

The Lakers, Clippers and Warriors are the leading contenders for Chris Paul, according to a source.

Because a trade to the Knicks is highly improbable, Paul's new favorite destination is the Lakers. Either Andrew Bynum or Pau Gasol would be moved to the Hornets as the central aspect of a package for Paul.

A source confirmed that talks between the Warriors and Hornets slowed down on Wednesday. While the Warriors can't offer as good of a chance to win as the Lakers and Clippers, Paul is said to have a lot of respect for new head coach Mark Jackson

Chris Paul will not commit to signing a contract extension this summer with either the Warriors or Clippers, citing the potential financial ramifications of doing so rather than becoming a free agent and signing a new dea, according to sources.

It is unknown if Paul has a similar reluctance with the Lakers.

While both the Warriors and Clippers understand Paul's position, neither team feels comfortable paying a high price via trade without an assurance.

Paul has only reportedly told the Knicks that he willing to sign an extension after the season

Who do you think we give up? How does CP3 fit into Brown's scheme?
