The more days that pass, the more that comes out about a potential marriage between Chris Paul and the San Antonio Spurs.
ESPN's Marc Stein reports that if the nine-time All-Star point guard decides to leave the L.A. Clippers, he will give 'serious consideration' to the Spurs.
It is no secret why the Spurs and head coach Gregg Popovich, winner of five NBA Championships since 1999, would entice Paul -- whose primary knock as a player is a lack of postseason success.
Sources told ESPN that Paul, for all of his undeniable fondness for Los Angeles, is intrigued by the idea of teaming up with the likes of Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and MVP top-three finalist Kawhi Leonard in his quest to achieve the deep playoff success that has eluded Paul to this point in his career.
Free agency is still a month away, but sources say the Clippers already have begun contemplating roster and organizational changes aimed at convincing Paul to re-sign after he declines to exercise his player option, as expected.
