Paul supposedly met with the Clippers for 90 minutes on Tuesday morning before letting them know Houston would be his choice during free agency.
Paul going to a different team will cost him $11.6 million next year, when comparing the full max he could have received from the Clippers to the contract he’ll get from the Rockets.
Just how much of an impact did Paul have on the Clippers?
Clippers have existed since 1971 (47 years). Their 6 best seasons by win %: 2014, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2012. Paul arrived in 2012.
