Chris Paul is staying in Los Angeles.
The All-Star point guard agreed to a new deal on the first day free agency opened, agent Leon Rose confirms.
Paul can earn about $108 million over five years with the Clippers.
Paul posted a message on his Twitter account on Monday, saying “I’M IN!!!” #CLIPPERNATION
KNICKS: Will give Andrea Bargnani a chance to rediscover his game in New York.
The Knicks and Toronto Raptors agreed on a deal involving the former No. 1 overall pick Monday.
New York will get the forward from Italy in exchange for three players and three picks. Toronto will receive Knicks reserves Steve Novak, Marcus Camby and Quentin Richardson, who will be signed-and-traded. The Knicks are also sending the Raptors a 2016 first-round pick and two second-round picks.
CELTICS: General manager Danny Ainge understands why other teams keep calling to see if he will trade Rajon Rondo.
The Celtics traded away coach Doc Rivers to the Los Angeles Clippers for a first-round draft pick. And a deal to send the team’s biggest stars, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, to the Brooklyn Nets for a package including three more No. 1 picks is just waiting for the NBA signing period to begin.
“Maybe the assumption is that we’ll give away any of our players,” Ainge said Monday, listing Jeff Green, Courtney Lee, Brandon Bass, Jared Sullinger and first-round draft pick Kelly Olynyk as other players who have attracted interest from other teams. “There’s been calls for all those guys. And maybe the assumption is we are just changing everybody, but we’re not.”
