Chris Paul Not Happy That Clippers-Celtics Talks Are Dead
The coach said himself that he’s not in the running anymore, and is thinking about his future in Boston in the meantime.
Some people think it’s because notoriously cheap Clippers owner Donald Sterling didn’t want to pay Doc’s considerable salary, and this was a way to get out of it.
No matter the reason, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Chris Paul is unhappy about the conclusion, or lack of one.
Paul, who is a free agent on July 1st, was let to publicly take the fall for the firing of coach Vinny Del Negro, and wasn’t feeling good about that.
Now, it was released that Paul was behind the Clippers reopening trade talks with the Celtics to get Rivers, but it just didn’t happen.
The Clippers have said that they want Paul to re-sign with them, but they’re doing a bang-up job convincing him.
It’s unfortunate that an owner would let a player, who isn’t even signed with them yet, to take the fall for the hirings and firings.
