(NEW YORK) — Chris Paul will be staying in Los Angeles. The All-Star guard has agreed to a five-year, $107 million contract extension with the Clippers, ESPN.com reports.
Paul’s agent, Leon Rose confirmed the news to ESPN.com on Monday.
“I’m in. ClipperNation,” Paul tweeted on Monday.
Paul won’t be able to officially sign the deal until July 10. The Clippers signed Blake Griffin last season to a five-year, $95 million contract extension.
Paul was a big supporter of bringing in Doc Rivers to coach the team, after they were eliminated by the Grizzlies in the playoffs.
