THE CLIPPERS WOULD LIKE TO RENEW CONTRACT WITH GRIFFIN AND PAUL
Wed, 23 May 2012 10:58 PM EDT

Blake Griffin is able to sign an extension with the organization this summer or he might become a limited independent agent after next season, while Paul is under agreement only for one more year. Football spreads

The Clippers say they are assured they’ll be well placed to retain both players for a considerable time.

“I feel those things are going to get done,” Clippers president Andy declared. “The vital thing is that we should do other things to improve the team. But I suspect we’ll do those things and at last I suspect those 2 players (Griffin and Paul) are going to play out their careers here.”

Griffin is eligible to sign a 5-year extension on July 1 and the Clippers will be offering it to him. When asked questions about his motives, Griffin said he had not considered them yet.

“I haven’t given it one ounce of thought,” Griffin said. “That’s been the farthest thing from my mind, honestly. I know that’s sort of the well-liked thing to say, but I haven’t thought about it. I’ll get to that when it comes.”

Paul was not asked immediately about his future intentions, but a source near to the situation stated that he has given the team indications he is going to stay long-term.

Still, it is believed that both players are curious to see what the organization will be in a position to do bolster the roster this offseason. The team clearly requires help at the shooting guard position and consistent outside shooters who can space the floor.

Then there is the way ahead for Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro. The team has an option on him for next season. It needs to decide by June 1 whether to retain him.

“I believe coach did an excellent job,” Paul said of Del Negro, “also with Neil (Olshey) and them in our front office. Everybody knows what occurred in mid-December with the trade going through, picking up Chauncey (Billups) off the waiver wire.

“Then Chauncey going down and all the injuries we had to endure. It has been a rollercoaster season for us, but I think the way that they managed all was great. Bringing in Kenyon Martin, bringing in Reggie Evans, they did a fantastic job. The season was crazy enough with 66 games, but they helped us get here. Now we have to build from it.”

One player who will not be going anywhere, at least of his very own volition, is guard Mo Williams, who said that he didn’t intent to opt out of his $8.5 million player option for next season.

“No,” Williams said when asked if he would back out this summer. “I can make it clear that right now.”

Williams had a solid season (13.2 points, 3.1 assists) despite coming off the bench, and typically out of place as a shooting guard. Still, he’s part of an excess of point guards on the Clippers line-up that might be used to upgrade at other positions thru trade.

“This is my 1st time in this position. I don’t believe about it when I’m playing,” Williams said. “I haven’t thought about it. I pay a good man 4 % of my cash, so he’ll make the best call for me.”
