Free Agency Madness: Clippers Re-Sign CP3 and Take Aim at Mayo


The Clippers have re-signed Chris Paul to a five-year, 107 million-dollar deal. Paul led the Clippers to a record of 56-26 last season, the best record the organization has ever had since entering the league in 1970. Los Angeles’ primary concern this summer was to secure Paul to a multi-year deal after a breakthrough season for the team. Now with a new head coach in Doc Rivers and their star players intact, the Clippers are rumored to be targeting another big talent in O.J. Mayo.

Doc Rivers is supposedly interested in bringing in the sharpshooting Mayo into L.A. for some added offense at the two-guard spot. Mayo played all 82 games for the Mavericks last season, shooting 45% from the field and averaging 15.3 points a game. The Clippers like to mix it up with Chauncey Billups, Jamal Crawford, Eric Bledsoe and Willie Green at the shooting guard position, but are hoping to solidify it with the likes of Mayo. Other teams including the Wolves, Bucks, Pistons and Jazz are also said to be interesting in signing Mayo this offseason.
